Well, you have friends now. Even if it is over the internet, it is still comforting. We are all here for you so be patient, things will turn around. I keep to myself a lot, but I kind of like it that way. It makes life much less difficult for me. I do have friends that I seldom see. We do things like berry pick and stuff like that.
I am sorry about your son and daughter. I know that kids can come to depend on mom for a babysitter. I would let her know though that it hurts your feelings and maybe then she will come around even when she doesn't need anything. And you could always say no if you didn't want to. But I have a feeling that you enjoy the grandkids.
You need to learn to love yourself. And we can help you with that. Do you feel the need for counseling? I go every month and it really helps me. You might want to look into that. Another thing that I do is take walks. I often see people on my walks and talk a little. It is a nice way to get out of the house.
I hope that you feel better soon. Keep posting. We are all here for you.
