Deirdre is our only child. We had a baby boy but he died when he was born prematurely due to a car accident. I was an only child and I always said I would have at least two children. I hated feeling guilty for living 1500 miles from my parents. Now our daughter lives 3000 miles from us. I don't want her to feel guilty. What bothers me most is she has Crohn's syndrome and does not take very good care of herself and she smokes. Also, she seems to get only lower paying jobs with poor insurance. She doesn't go to specialists like she should. She says it's too expensive even though we would pay for it. Just recently she totaled her car but fortunately was not hurt. Worrying about her adds to my depression but I try not to let it show. Also her boyfriend and my husband don't hit it off, so when she visits they tend to spend more time with her friends than us. I guess I would not be so upset if she was healthy and had a good paying job.
