    Just checking, my feed seems to be stuck now?

    • Anybody there?

      • @kimbo I’m here….I see you.

        • Thank you @Sober4real I got a bit stuck there for a while! X

        • @kimbo glad you are back! How are you doing? Things going okay? I haven’t been stuck as I primarily use my laptop here at home.

        • I seem to behaving all sorts of problems, maybe it’s because I use my phone @Sober4real. I haven’t been too good, I sometimes fill I need a mental health group to talk too!! I’m 15 days AF which is good. Life can be so bloody hard sometimes! How are you?

        • @kimbo I remember you and all your stories. 15 days is FANTASTIC! Hold on to that. Life is hard. I’m 50 and can’t believe I’ll be 51 soon. I divorced from the love of my life… was the hardest thing I ever went through in my life. I miss my grown kids, have the empty nest syndrome now. Wish I had some nice girlfriends to meet for coffee and be myself around. Big hugs. I know what you are going through. Keep posting! Don’t go anywhere. xxox (PS counseling can be a good thing if you find the right fit for you. I’ve had some of them I didn’t agree with their philosophies so nowadays I interview them before I hire them, maybe you can get a good referral from the group).

        • I’m 49 this year @Sober4real and I think I may be separating from my husband soon (the love of my life) he can barely talk to me anymore. I don’t think I’ll get through that! Coffee and a honest chat with girlfriends sounds perfect, if only! Sending hugs x

      • @kimbo well my heart goes out to you. I do not wish that for you. It’s been 12 years for me and I’m still alone but I got through it and so will you. Maybe you making some serious changes will then change the dynamics. Awakenings are known to happen. Focus on you first and see what happens as a result. Believe in yourself. You are all you have….you are worth it. I so wish the coffee and chats could happen. Sending hugs and don’t make any serious decisions until you are firmly grounded being AF. That’s most important! xoxoxoxox (I’m so excited to see many of us on here in my age group. Makes me so happy!)

    • Hi @kimbo, I see you too. I wish I could have a cuppa with you and offer a hug, that’s rough.
      Are you in NZ? There’s a get-together in Auckland coming up soon i believe.

      • I wish I was in NZ!!! 🙂

      • Hi @Liberty I’m in the Bay of Plenty. Auckland is a bit far to go. A hug would have been lovely!! Wish you was here too @Sober4real 💜

        • I can think of two members in the BoP @kimbo but neither are on the site much anymore. I feel sure there will be other active members in your area. If you feel up to it, you could put out a feeler to see if anyone wants to meet up? But I know when I feel down, going out on a limb to organise something with new people is the last thing i have capacity for. I’ll have to settle for sending a giant virtual bear hug. We’re here! Even when you can’t see our posts, we can see yours.

        • Thank you so much @Liberty 💜

        • Hey, @bondi , @treehugger and …?

        • Hi @Kimbo, I have been away and not checking in here. I am eastern BOP and would love to meet up if you feel up to it. Big hugs xoxo
