All these years, my priority was my 3 kids. Now my 2 oldest kids have left the nest, my youngest 18-year-old stays with me. However, my "baby" does not need me. She goes to college and she has her own life.
I try to do different things and take up different hobbies to keep myself occupied. I have a good career. Yet, I cannot fill the void in my heart. I feel depressed from time to time. I tried Internet dating, but was disappointed with what I found.
I am still young. I look much younger than 47 as my friends and coworkers tell me. I thank God for those years of single parenthood did not show on my physical outlook. But, it did drain me, inside. I feel mentally exhausted, and sad, from time to time. Please help......
