    Therese, I am unable to find another place to contact you so I hope you can find this. I suddenly started getting emails from beliefnet and had no idea why. I hadn't signed onto anything. I deleted all of them until I got one titiled 15 ways to stop obsessing. I am a 54 year old woman. I've been divorced for 4 years. my marriage was loveless and sexless for 10 years. 7 years ago, I lost my mom to breast cancer. My only sister died suddenly 6 months later and my father 2 years after that. After my sisters death, I took up with one of my daughters male friends. It started innocently enough as golf here and there. The friendship lasted about a year and then turned into a full blown love affair. We spent every minute together and I had never been happier at any time in my life, ever. I considered this to be my first love. Neither one of us cared about the age difference. I knew this couldn't be permanent because of age and always knew it would end someday. It lasted 4 years. It was always passionate for me and I always got a chill when he touched me. Early this summer, he met someone his own age and is in a relationship. We tried to keep our friendship but, I am unable to do this. I have been in an unexplainable depression for 8 months, unable to move forward. He is in my head every minute. I was thinking last night the worst thoughts and I convinced myself I can't move forward from this. I screamed at myself STOP! WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU?? Then, this morning I found your 15 reasons to stop obsessing. I never imagined that I could be clinically depressed. I've been through so much and I guess I never dealt with any of it. I am going to seek professional help. I can't do this to myself and I wanted to thank you.

    Comments & Myspace layouts Being a Christian is like being a pumpkin.God lifts you up, takes you in,and washes all the dirt off of you.He opens you up, touches you deep inside and scoops out all the yucky stuff-- including the seeds of doubt, hate, greed, etc.Then He carves you a new smiling face and puts His light inside you to shine for all the world to see.This was passed on to me from another pumpkin. Now, it is your turn to pass it to a pumpkin.I liked this enough to send it to all the pumpkins in my patch.Happy Fall!

Thanks for your writing and your concern for the group. I think you do an excellent job with the time allotted! Hope to learn more about you and be there if there is something I can do to help. Blessings! Lin
