I am at a loss. This is thread is about loss of support system and subsequent loneliness.
After losing my mom and dad, being single, my relations living overseas, my friends are married, my career as a journalist has flatlined, I am at a complete loss of what to do. There is nothing wrong with me. I know it is a bad year. But, I still have to find a way to make some sort of life. I have been crawling along, doing my best, but feel very vulnerable. I was an only child. I tried to look for jobs overseas and here, and though my current (little) work likes me, without a job or husband, I am in trouble. I just am having a bad time right now and I just had send out this SOS. I know I am not alone, in having this dilemma. Sometimes, I think I would be better off going with my mom and dad. I am seeing a counselor starting Friday. My education was in Political Science. My father cautioned me about doing anything in a rush. But sometimes things get to be so lonely, that I wish I could just jump into another, happier life. I have done things alone for a long time but without someone by your side, life is very difficult. If anyone has been through this, and has some suggestions, I would most appreciate hearing them. I am looking for people who made it to the other side. I want to fix things, but without some luck, I don’t know how. (I am in Texas and my friend said move to Australia, for example.) It is far too conservative here. My mom was from Norway but they have their own secure lives.
