Hello everyone. I just recently heard about this board and just joined today. I am a 54 year old single woman, mother of 2, soon to be a grandmother. I have suffered from depression since I have been a teenager. I am currently on Zoloft which is somewhat effective for me. I have good days and bad days but what I am finding I am suffering from mostly these days is lack of interest in just about anything. I can't seem to get excited about anything or want to do anything. I used to care about how I looked and what I wore but now I jsut get up and put on any old thing. I'm very lonely but just can't seem to take the steps to try to meet someone. I did date a man for almost 2 years but it didn't work out and I'm still depressed from that and think about him all the time. Ugh! Anyway, thanks for listening and I hope to get to know some of you and become friends. I miss having someone to talk to.

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...
