I am an older mom 49 with two kids and no family, I have high expectations of myself and feel I fall short at everything in life. Anxiety is terrible, I struggle on a daily basics to be happy and keep moving forward. I think the biggest thing is family, there is none.

Olivia,

Thank you for responding, I have spoke to a counselor for a couple years, she feels it's due to circumstance. I have no family and my very best friend committed suicide 10 months ago, my mom died this past summer. I need to feel connected somewhere like I belong, I don't. I am self-employed so there are no co-workers, I attend college full time, have a 7 year old and 13 year old bottom line I feel detached, especially with the holidays here. My other friends all have large families and are busy through out the holiday, they really don't understand what it is to be alone. I do feel my age plays a part, I am an old mom at 49, most moms are much younger and have more in common. I do not know how to meditate, I am going to start searching the internet and find out how to get started, I will also look into hypnosisdowloads.com two really good suggestions I never thought about. Thank you
I will let you know what happens, and thanks for your response. Lori

Hi Lori
I can only tell you what helped me but if you're struggling on a daily basis you may want to speak with a counselor, pastor, co-worker or friend about what may be the cause of your anxiety. Also, have you tried meditation? If not, do a google or amazon.com search for "guided meditations for anxiety". Hypnosis also helps. Check out the website www.hypnosisdowloads.com. These are good places to start as they are inexpensive and you can get started right away in the comfort of your own home
