    Hey Roseleen.

    Well done on being a true survivor! Are you going through the rotten empty nest syndrome? Because that is an absolute nightmare! I know so many women our age that are struggling with this!
    If it is this, start joining clubs, even knit and natter clubs! Just get out there with other women and have a cuppa and a good conversation about anything! I have chatted to woman on dog walks and in airport departure lounges where we have both been fighting back tears (or not!) because we miss our babies! Yee god we need to get a life! 🙄😂💕💕

    I used the helpline many times and just wanted to say a huge thank you. Women like you make such a difference and have changed many lives for the better. Would you consider doing it again. Even for a few hours a week? Well done for coming on here and connecting. Have a look in your local library where they advertise clubs. I’ve recently started a course in psychology and counselling. Are there any courses that interest you. Google groups in your local area. I’ve had coffee with neighbours I never would have dared when with my ex. Keep posting. It’s a great place to be for support x I’m a similar age too and starting to really enjoy life again. This is my time x
