According to “Wikipedia, Empty Nest Syndrome, is a feeling of grief and loneliness parents or guardians may feel when their children leave home…”
As a mother of seven children, about a year ago this month, August 2012, the last one of my children left the nest. “Oh boy,” I thought “woohoo…” I didn’t waste time changing the house around. Well my friends that lasted about two weeks. Then I began feeling so lost.
This past year has been a rough ride. Faced with a new identity, I was no longer such and suches “Mom”… but rather to my surprise I began to feel depressed and a loss of purpose. I began to question everything. Was my purpose here on earth over? I found myself over weight and didn’t even know the man I had been married to for the past years. Who was I? What do I like to do? Who are my friends? All of this was making me very sad and caused me to sink deeper and deeper into depression. Plus, my health was really taking a turn for the worst.
I was also dealing with anger and regrets. Questioning all my past and living in the land of “What If’s?” We’ll today is a NEW DAY, come take this journey with me. Learning who I am, and who you are.
