Hey Suzy, hope your doing better today? I know where your coming from, I have same feelings at the moment and can't get rid of them. The people in the forum are helping me far more than they realise, but there is one thing in particular that is helping (when I didn't think it would) and that is to write it down. It really makes me be honest with myself, some issues are trivial that I blow all out of proportion, some issues are big and I am not giving them the attention they need to resolve.
It is good that you have a supportive husband, and try to take the pleasure in seeing that your daughter is almost 17! I cant have kids, so it is easy for me to say that having a child must be truly amazing. I see it with my nieces and nephews, they were once all so vulnerable and dependant, now growing into the young men and women they are, developing their opinions and values, making mistakes (don't ask). It is truly awsome and often helps lift my mood. To take a minute and look at them for who they are, and really see their beauty and individuality is inspiring. And I am thier Aunt, that makes me feel super! Guess I am a little proud of them!!!!
