Older Ladies..

Problem is I have absolutely NO ONE to talk to. .everyone now thinks I have got over not having children ( the few I have ever told ) and the rest either don't care or think it was my choice ..I can't even get a dog as I work full time and on shifts ...oh Yeh. .happy new year. .lol...I mean I am grateful i have my own home and good health but its like I am stuck in my life , it's never had that normal momentum..children grandchildren...I still live in the same house I bought 27 years ago..I remember thinking one room would be perfect for a nursery! ! And yet I am scared of moving as it's my home and I feel safe there...

I really feel for you. I can only imagine how it must feel to have been dealing with this for so long. Personally I've only been on an infertility journey for 4 years, and that has been tough and draining enough. You deserve an award for dealing with this. I wish you all the best and hope you find happiness and fulfilment xx

Hi annier60

I completely understand how you feel! I am 50 now and thought that time would heal my grief and loneliness of not being a mum...and yes, as you mentioned in your other post the realisation of also never being a grandma.

I wish I could give you some advice and consolation but my feelings are very similar to yours.

What I can do though is forward my number on to you if you wish.. I am more than happy to listen to you if you need to rant/shout/cry/swear and all the other emotions that come from being childless.

If you don't wish to then maybe you could find yourself a good counsellor (I'm sure you've been told this before) who you can chat to so you can get your feelings and emotions out when you need to. X
