I am new to the group. This is my first support group of any kind. It was more difficult than I had anticipated. Any assistance is appreciated. I thought the on-line experience would be easier for two reasons: 1. finding the right fit for me (I was wrong); I hope I have found it here 2. that with it being on-line the pressure of being judged would be less. I was wrong about that as well. I feel just as much pressure about that.
A little about myself. I am a 48-year-old white female that lives in the midwest. I am the mother of step-mother of 1; mother of three; grand mother of three. I am on my second marriage. I take care of my 85-year-old mother-in-law and my mother (that I was close to) passed away at the age of 63 of cancer 10/19/16. I spiraled downward while taking care of her and everyone except for me.
I am a people person and try to help by listening and with humor through everything.
Again, any help in this is appreciated. Some days I am great, other days it takes all my energy to crawl out of bed to face another day.
