Hi Alison, I want to thank you so much for your reply and advise about my situation. Many of the things you said hit home with me. Especialy about expecting my boyfriend to empathize with me and actually be sad with me. This is true. I think I feel alittle on the bitter side on how easier it has been for him than myself. His life appeared not to have been affected much as mine. If I may say, his life seamed to have got better. Purely on the fact that he now has a cook and cleaner at home for him, alas me. I realise that I've been unrealistic. What you said that he probably never understand how difficult it is for me, well it's helped me to think differently.

I like the idea of branching out and making new friends here. The volenteer works sounds like a good way to go. I like helping people and love being around animals, so maybe I should start down that line. I've just felt so low recently and bombarded with my boyfriends lifestyle that I felt trapped and scared to face anymore, what I saw as problems. Didn't know if I could deal with it and stop the crying that I seamed to do all the time. I swear my boyfriend must think he has a different person living with him at times. I was more independant, more confidant That got me down too.

Once again, thank you for your advice.
