Isn't it great to be us?

I just have to mention how glad I am that I am me. Truly it would suck if I had to be you. No offense. I just love my life so much. I love my reasons. I love my bed, I love what's in my refrigerator. I cannot deny. I love my children, I love my jeans. I love the fact that I can fit into my jeans. My size 4 jeans are even baggy on me and I had a baby only 3 1/2 months ago. So there. I rule. If you want to contradict me, take it up with my attorney. My latest baby even has my blue eyes. So sue me. If you knew me, you would not be able to help yourself but to love me. At least, that is what I have been told.

I just want to recommend to any of you reading this to love yourself as much as I love me. Nobody else can do it for you. Even if they say they do, well, love yourself more. Because other people come and go but you alone are going to be stuck with you in the final death throws (however you spell that). I assume death is worse than birth and believe me, birth totally sucks; I did it five times. The good part is I have a bunch of really cute human beings who think I'm great and wait for my kisses, yes even the 11 year old boy.

Life is good, love is good. Life with love is even better.

Anyone who was hoping for something more political, sorry. Maybe next time.

As I read these comments, it is reassuring to know that I am not alone, but still troubling as to what to do. I'm a 63 year old woman who looks 50, and is still attractive, married to a high-level professional who works 100 hours a week. Living in suburbia, I usually feel quite lonely, as he works on Saturdays and Sundays. When we discuss this issue, he blames me for pressuring him. We can not see each other for a week, go out to dinner, and he'll listen to talk radio in the car. Or we'll go on vacation and we'll sit on the plane for three hours and he won't talk to me - just read articles. His mother warned me when we married that he was a loner, but I didn't totally understand.
Our adult child is out of the home, and may be AS due, due to the lack of phone calls I receive, in spite of my long devotion and good parenting. Although I work part-time and have many friends, the loneliness is very difficult. I give all my empathy and good wishes to you all, as only someone living through this and facing these decisions can understand how hard it is.
I plan to look for a group in a nearby county, as I'd like anonymity in that we are both professionals here.
