Hello, I am new to all of this but would love to hear from others that are going through the same thing that I am. I was wondering if other people feel like they cannot keep their thoughts in their head! I will be thinking of something and all of a sudden my mind totally goes blank. Things I used to could remember so easily now I can't even keep a thought in my head. Right after my husband left (after 37 years of marriage) I got a job and absolutely could not concentrate on what I was doing. I got so frustrated. I felt like I was totally losing it because I would go home and try to learn some of the things I needed to know on a daily basis for the job and could not even remember what I had studied on for hours the night before. It is like a heavy fog is around me. I can't get through a day without crying at least a few minutes it seems. I had to quit the job I was telling you about because I just could not do it. I am now looking for another job and feel somewhat better but worry that this might happen again. Another problem is that I am having an awful time even trying to get in for an interview with any companies. I really need a full time job and benefits. I have had 3 part-time jobs since my husband left me. I fill out applications on a weekly basis but cannot find a job. I am 56 years old and have been a stay at home grandma. My husband was a CPA and made a good income so I did not have to work. Now I will be working till I am 80 so it is very important I get a good company to work for. My resume' looks terrible because I haven't worked in 10 years. Have any of you around my age had the same problem? I keep trying to have faith that all of this will work out but it seems I take one step forward and two back. Anyone that would like to respond I would love to hear from you.

I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
I'm trying to exercise daily. I was doing fairly well until I sprained my ankle 2 weeks ago but now I'm getting back on the horse. Today I walked over a mile with my arm weights that are about 22lbs total. I was out of shape and it was hard on my arms. I also did my 30 situps. I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
