My depression is getting worse and worse with each passing day. My daughter is getting ready to graduate, and she says she is moving in with her brother right after graduation. She is my last child to leave home, and I am very close to her. Every time she leaves the house, I get knots in my stomach and have diarrhea. Today I started couching, gagging, and throwing up when she left for school. I am ruining what should be a very happy time in her life. I don't know how to be happy about any of this. I don't have a support system. My husband travels overseas A LOT, and when he does, he's gone for 2 to 3 weeks at a time. In fact, he's in Germany right now. He's completely frustrated with me and tells me he can't help me. I just want to die! The anxiety and depression I am feeling are so overwhelming. I can't do anything. I can't eat. Hell, I can't even go to the grocery store without my daughter dragging me there. I don't know how I'm going to manage when she leaves. I am VERY lonely! I also have health issues.... as if depression and anxiety weren't enough to deal with!

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...
