I'm new. I am used to typing out my feelings. I type many long paragraphs and just delete it when I am done. This would be my first time posting in a forum where other people will read my thoughts. I have never been to a doctor and been diagnosed with mental illness, I just know that I am not supposed to feel like this. This can't be life the way that I am supposed to be living it. I don't seem to be able to change it. I am 51 years old. I have 2 children - a son who is a 32 year old meth addict and a 17 year old daughter who is anorexic. I am married to a man who never seemed to remember that he was married. I spent years fighting to win this 'prize' of a man. Wasted all of my prime years chasing after him. We have been married for 25 years. Now that he is older, slower and has a few health issues he wants to be home and around all the time. I can barely stand to look at him half the time. I don't love him anymore. I don't trust him. I don't feel secure with him. I want to be alone. But how? When? I could just disappear, but social anxiety won't let me get far. It doesn't let me get far in any aspect of my life. My heart is racing just knowing that someone else will be reading these words....doesn't matter that it's not my real name or that you can't see my face. My business is failing because of it. I don't like talking to people, but need to. I don't. I dread it. I am overwhelmed with life. The pit of my stomach is perpetually sinking. Tears fall, but only when I am alone. I'm all over the place, I know. I'm sorry.
