How do I start over, my only child left for college, husband divorced me 6 months later?
I have no family, all I had was my daughter and my 2 nd husband. We were married 16 years. I was so lost and so alone I had a break down. I went back to my first husband (friends only) we have remained friends, but i thought he had stop drinking he is an alcoholic.I quit my job (big mistake.) I am now stuck here in this small town in Louisiana, all I have left is my car. I also blacked out for two months, and was arrested for having two xanax a misdemeanor first time arrested, I was asleep in my car, which I lived in two months. I am 48, I had a good job with home health, now I am afraid I will never get my job back, I am trying. My ex said he would give me a second chance, although I made mistakes he made mistakes to. The botttom line is that I love him. He says he loves me, but he is not in love with me? It started when he wanted to move from Tennessee back to Texas. He quit a good job with the telephone company and now works in the logging business which he makes no money at. But he is determined to stay it is a family thing. His mother hates me and told me she paid for the divorce. I just wish I had my family back, but it has been two years and I have been through hell. I have tried to get him back. I feel lost, alone and depressed. I am working on getting my job back, but I am still in louisiana with very little money, I have someone to stay with who is the sweetest lady, the Director of Nurses said, that she will do everything she can to help me. I was a good employee. But I am just tired, the This was just all to much for me. All I wanted to be was a wife and mother. I lost my home, family, job, moved so many times I cannot count them. I have been depressed,now taking anti-depressants. I just do not want to be alone. I need advice... It just seems hopeless I have tried everything nothing works, it is to the piont I am afraid to try. I have to drive to Tennesee again to try to get my job back, I have to renew my CPR and get nursing insurance plus gas money. My little odd eyed cat was run over, I finally got another one, I love him but I cannot take him or much else right now. I have given away, lost or sold everything I owned. Because with noone in my life I have no desire for material possessions. I am a fighter, I have overcome so much in life, but But I am just tired, at my age starting over alone is just scary.
