    I'd like to think that all readers here would appreciate such heartfelt and personal sharing. I do. If anything, the world 'could use' more of this type of honest expression from the heart. It is difficult, but worthwhile to go deeper into feelings.

    You see this in yourself, and that is the essential sight.

    You don't ever get over it, but you learn to live with it and be happy in spite of the loss. It takes a long time to recover; be kind to yourself in the meantime. If the love of your life is worth it, he will be there to help you through.

    I like the way you expressed it. Though you did not ask for suggestions and it may not apply, I will say that by being more true to myself, relating to others has become more natural. It is an ongoing learning, isn't it.

    Being depressed is the most awful feeling the world!

    I'm sorry you feel that way, but you are not alone.

    Fun answer! I can SO relate! Especially to the part about guys who already have kids.

    Good luck, SD Dickens ( hi again :-) ). I've heard from many people that 12-year-olds are like a bigger/magnified reflection of "The Terrible Twos". Good luck with the homework problem and the balancing act--you can do it, I'm sure: you're talented.

    It is hard to imagine. You will find the inner resources to meet your challenge, I know.

    It can be a slog at times. Sounds like you're ready for a complete turn around - escape from your dependency on the system. Start with asking yourself what you REALLY love to do.

    This doesn't mean that there is something wrong with you or your thinking, it shows you have many and varried interests--a flexible, thinking mind. You need to pick a major, but which one may not matter so much. You can have several careers in life.

    Your challenge will also be your victory. Your worth has nothing to do with your ability to find a job in any economy. You have gifts in the same measure as no human being on earth. 1 day, you will be aligned with them. Then, contentment will appear.

    Maybe the path to "being" is through "doing".

    What a wonderful set of choices to have. Many people see no path at all! I know you will know when the time is right though the path may not be certain.

    This is an interesting challenge to explore, to discover what plays beneath the worry (as Kati says, we 'displore'.) Have you found any clues?

    I really hope they help you real soon. It's a shame that people have to go through so much for what they are entitled to.

    Sleep is good too. I do some of my best work in my sleep. Of course there is a balance.

    Do you mean to add the Poll capsule? You could create a poll to ask your question and let reader choose their response, within a hub.
