OKay I have been doing some thinking and for me that is not always a good thing. I seem to think too much and to deep into things. Which causes some of my anxiety and stress. As of lately I have been thinking maybe I am crazy.
My sis seems to think I have a void in my life and I think she is right. In a way I feel like I have been on a hunt for happiness ever since I was a teen.
She gets mad at me and tells me I must be crazy cause everything has worked out so well for me, I should be the happiest person alive. But I am not. I have a hubby who is a really great guy, a good father and has a great job and takes care of me and the kids. We have a home, food on the table and I dont have to worry about money. We are not rich but always seem to be able to get what we need. I have 2 amazing kids that I love more than anything and I can give them everything they need.
I should be happy and I  am most the time, I just feel like something is missing from my life and I dont know what it is.
I did have my kids and get married young. In fact I was Pg when I was 17 and got married to her daddy when I was 18 and we have been together ever since. I sometimes wonder if maybe that has anything to do with my void but I just dont know.
Then it all comes back to Anxiety! Could it be that ? I dont feel depressed, I mean I am not sad, I just feel like I am searching for my true happiness. Am I crazy? Is it anxiety? Could I be Bipolar? Or maybe I need a bigger change in my life?
Sorry to just go on and on like that. I am not sure if this is even a question with an answer but thank you for listening.
Sometimes it just feels better to get things off your chest.

Hello Crying,

I am sorry that things are still bad for you.  You may be going through some doubts that you missed out on life by marrying so young. If your happy with your life, and husband than I would not worry about making any wrong choices.

Please talk with your physician re this doubt that your experiencing.

I wish you peace and happines.
