This spoke to me so strong and urgently. Thank you for these amazing words that help me feel that I’ll be ok. That I’m not alone in struggling.

My sister recently passed away, from a quick illness. I thought I had gone thru the grieving process. But reading this I acknowledge that I am depressed. I’m home recuperating from hip surgery, and I think of her all the time and how much I miss her. We were so close.
But I’m afraid to let it out, afraid of what will happen. I feel so alone without her to talk to. Although i go thru my daily “things”, it’s like there is no purpose, that it falls on deaf ears/hearts/eyes.

I am at the point of “Why bother?” The only thing that keeps me here is knowing the struggle will be even greater for my daughters and my granddaughters. I cannot give them the example of ending it even though I am old and my entire life has been struggle. I continue so that they will and possibly find a better future. For me there is none.

As a mother and full time carer of an adult son, since a skateboarding accident claimed his independence, I run on empty most days. I often feel alone. I cried with relief reading this article, as though the author understood our struggle. Thank you for saying, good job!

This article came at a time I needed it most. Although attempting to live life philosophically has been my mantra, events occur that overshadow that goal. I’m trying my best to keep carrying on, but around every corner has been another struggle. Just a few days ago I lost my job due to elimination of the position, couldn’ Be at a worse time. The article made me feel understood, and sometimes that’s enough, at least for one day.
