I would like to echo Quirky's welcome and post above!
I just turned 60 yesterday and my daughter left home when she was 20 (she is 26 now with an attitude) and this can be a difficult time to go through for sure. You mentioned in your post that your hubby doesnt really pay you any attention anymore. This is sad yet sometimes common unfortunately as its meant to be a special time of our lives as empty nesters
Being in a small rural town can be just as lonely as living close to a busy city Sleeve yet it doesnt help with meeting new friends....thats an excellent point
At this time...I hope you can stick around the forums as there are many people like us that feel this way...Sure..we dont have instant messaging yet it can be a wonderful forum to a part of even if you wish to share you life experience by helping others too (only if you wish of course!)
I bought a Nikon P900 a year ago and its a great camera....I must make an effort and use it properly as the ocean is only 40 minutes away
I hope you can have a look around the forums and like what you see Sleeve :-)
Great to have you as part of the Beyond Blue family too
you are not alone
