I have everything in the world anyone could want, yet I don't even want life at the moment.
Years of chronic lower back pain has worn me down. I am facing "empty nest syndrome". I'm in menopause and I just don't want to wake up anymore in the mornings. I long for an incurable cancer to kill me. I just don't want to live anymore.
I'm really hoping that this e-course will help me, I'm looking into a tunnel and not seeing the light at the end yet.
Thanks for sharing as I was there once too. I'm so glad you came across this site. I also encourage you to find someone to walk through the changes in your life right now - empty nest and menopause. Each of those alone are big changes.
Purpose can also be found in getting involved in your community and making a difference - as much as your back allows. Start small. Even volunteering at your local animal shelter if you are an animal lover is a great start.
Nonetheless, I'm glad you came across this site!
There is hope! You are worth it! Life is worth it!
