thanks gail. so have you had those same symptoms? how old are you if you don't mind me asking?
i have 2 children i am raising on my own - 16 and 3. i thinki feel bad for turning 40 and still being single. but i can't beat myself up over it. i mean a man won't make me complete. just be nice in this economy and to have a whole family for my boys.
i am also hypothyroid. i have been taking my meds though. i am prescribed like 50 whatever it is - ha - of levoxyl but when i take the full amount, i find my anxiety increases bad so i only take half. i made myself an apt to get it checked again today. i hate taking time off work for me tho. i have an anxiety about losing my job and being single and broke!!! scary!!
OK, I will fess up..............I had my major melt down when I turn 60.........Oh my I still have not adjusted to this age. I do not feel like I fit into any group right now. I am to young to spend my time playing cards at the senior center. To old to have much in common with the younger set and feel like I am just sitting here waiting for something good to be thrown my way.
Turning 50 was awesome, I loved the 50's as I was at my prime in my job, had the extra money to do some traveling and still had lots of friends all tied to my job.
Now I rattle around but I will survive. If I just had a hobby. I have thought of many but no one around to teach me how to knit etc.
Enjoy your life. Happy Birthday.
Don't worry! 40's are great. Personally I do not celebrate "numeric" birthdays anymore, meaning I do not focus on the age, just the fact that I am still here and have so much to be grateful for, not always an easy task. I think my 50's will be great so long as I can keep my anxiety under control which is coming about slowly but surely.
Celebrate and enjoy your birthday!
