Oh Susie, I'm sorry. Building a new life is very, very hard work. The picture you describe is not one that would motivate me (if it were me) to change things. What other tools could you bring in to help you find a more compelling vision of what's next? What else do you love? You talked about travelling with friends... did those contacts fizzle? I know we can find others... I'll PM you, too.
Susie, I'm very much in the same boat. It is so hard to find motivation to do the things to keep healthy and lengthen my stay on this earth, even though I've got two young-adult children and a grandchild do any day. I want to travel too, but not alone, but don't see getting close enough to anyone to travel with them. I know there are good reasons for taking care of oneself and to keep moving forward, but sometimes those reasons just aren't good enough to make a difference. If you find the motivation and a way to get past this stumbling block, let me know? In the meantime, *hugs*
