  1. I think I'm in a simlar boat but my circumstances are different. I'm 52, divorced, 4 kids, disabled and trying desperately to find a work from home job after losing child support which we have been existing off of. I've been a stay at home mom for the past 28 years! I understand what you mean about getting a job and your parents. Mine still treat me like a kid. They are on me all the time about a job. Unfortunately I am having to rely on them for money just to survive. The pressure to get a job is unreal. Things are so different these days getting a job than when I last worked outside the home. I, too, feel utterly alone in all this. And having mental illness just compounds everything. I just wanted you to know there was someone else out here who understands.
  2. I guess I'm reaching out because I feel so utterly alone. I was recently in the hospital due to bad interactions with my meds. I'm now off celexa, buspar, hydroxyzine, lamectal and back on rexulti, prozac and propanelol. My parents make me feel as if I've done something wrong. (I'm 52!) My mom thinks I shouldn't be on any meds. She still doesn't understand mental illness after all these years. I've been diagnosed with borderline personality disorder, major depressive disorder, anxiety disorder and PTSD. I am divorced with 4 kids. Boy(very disrespectful!)/girl twins, 18, still home with me, son, 22, who moved out a year ago, making bad life choices, and son, 28, who with my lovely daughter-in-law, just moved out last month. I miss them terribly. I just lost my child support in July which was how we were surviving and am left with only SSI which doesn't last the month. I'm currently trying to find a work from home job due to health problems and am having to rely on my parents for grocery/gas/med money. I am very thankful for their help but they make me feel like I've done something wrong. I'm just in a deep, deep well of hell. I feel so VERY alone.
