I am a 57 year old women with some medical and emotional conditions. I have been diagnoised with CHF, artheritius, digestive problems, depression and also bone problems. I have been dealing with these issues for about 8 years now, under the care of a doctor for all these conditions. I have 5 children ages 34, 31, 27. 26 & 24, I have 1 grandaughter who is 2 years old. My life is very quite now after raising my children but this is where the depression comes in because I feel very alone sometimes, my children are all grown and out of the house. I sometimes feel like I am not needed and I get that empty-nest syndrome.
