I am feeling very down today and I don't know why.  I have been doing fairly well lately and have even gotten over some of my feelings of lonliness but today seems to be bad.  One thing that makes me sad is my 27 yr old son who is dating a wonderful girl is talking about breaking up with her.  I don't think he realizes what a wonderful person she is.  I know they have some problems getting along but her good qualities far out weigh the bad points.  I know too that it is his life but I don't think he is going to find anyone better suited to him. I haven't said anything to him about it but he does know how much I liike her.  I'm afraid I won't be able to give another girl a chance as I will always be comparing. 
This seems to be the main thing bothering me although it is the week-end which is always hard for me.  I don't have too many plans but am going out later.  Does anyone else get down for no apparent reason?  Is it just the depression?  I just don't feel very good about myself right now.

Hi, I to have depression.  Yes I do get down for no apparent reason.  Sometimes it just slaps me in the face.  The meds I take are helpful, but that doesnt mean I dont get down here and there.  Its too bad your son is breaking up with a girl you really like.  Sometimes you dont have control what someone else does.  I believe you will adore whoever your son chooses to spend his life with.  Hope you feel better soon.

Hi Aurora,

I'm having adown day today. I have reallt good days and then sometimes have days where I just feel really down and fed up.
I can understand your concerns about your son and his girlfriend but he obviousley has his reasons for wanting to break off their relationship. It is hard on you, i can relae to that as I have been with my boyfriend 5 years and me and his mum are extremely close.
Its is probably your depression as you say making you feel like this. Its probably just a bad days and hopefully you will wake up tomorrow and feel better.

Take care
cherish all your happy moments....they make a fine cushion for old age

Hi Aurora, Welcome to Healing Well forum, we are happy to have you.  I have a little story about this, when I was 18 I dated a guy for about a year.  He was my "first love" and I did get close to his family, even though my mom didn’t care for him all that much.  She says I am a "bum magnet"!  Anyway, we broke up as the relationship really wasn’t a very good and his family wasn’t aware of everything that was going on within it.  His mom and my mom are best friends...weird huh?  So, he goes on to get married a few years later and to this day his mother is always saying that he should of married me.  She even says this to him...apparently she doesn’t care for his wife, even though they have been married for over 10 years and have 5 kids.  Regardless of that, I can’t help but to feel sorry for the girl.  She is caught in a situation with his mother competiting for her attention and affection and respect. 

As you said your son is 27 and more than able to make his own decisions regarding these matters.  Unless he lives with you, then you really don’t know what goes on within their relationship.  I am sure if he is considering terminating the relationship he must have some very good reasons for it, especially if she is as wonderful as you say.  I do understand it is difficult when you have to adjust to new people coming into your life and your son's as well, but I am sure you can trust your son's decision and learn to love the person that he chooses to love as well.
