Hi, I'm Parmela. In May 2015, I created this group one night in desperation because I was so lonely and needed so badly to tell somebody the truth about my life. Well, 3 years have passed and nothing much has changed, except I'm even more unhappy than ever. But as time has gone on, I'm mostly just numb. Its only occasionally when I find myself on the verge of tears for no apparent reason that I acknowledge to myself just how miserable I truly am.
I look back on a time in my life when I was much more naive and couldn't understand why someone would stay in an unhappy marriage. I now know it is so much more complicated to leave than you would think..... and so much harder.
I look in the mirror these days and don't even recognize the woman who entered into a hasty marriage almost 8 years ago. Then I saw a middle aged, but fairly attrative woman with a lot to offer. Now all I see is an old woman who nobody would ever want and who has nothing to give even if they did.
I hope some of you find the courage and strength to change your lives before it's to late. I don't think I have it in me.
