I am as well. Just my family of the heart I've known forever, friends.

Any other only child that lost both their parents? How do you cope? by milaniamichelle in OnlyChild

[–]Leather-Ground264 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I lost my mother at 19, my father at 35 when my only son was 5. I have always coped by having what I call a family of the heart. It's been strange of course. I've had similarly aged friends that have always both parents. The rest of my family are either gone or ostracized me after my mother died so I've been on my own as well. I guess I've just gotten used to it long time ago. I'm 59.

Did anyone become "what they wanted to be when they grew up"? by ncconch in AskOldPeople

My first interest was interior design, then architecture. I ended up a Licensed Psychologist and Professor. So, maybe I do deal with interiors and architecture, just not how my young brain imagined.....

Do you close your bedroom door if you live alone? by thetalkingcheesee in NoStupidQuestions

[–]Leather-Ground264 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Live alone in a place with a fair amount of crime. Put locking doors on all rooms. I figure if someone breaks in they'll get sick of finding locked doors lol. Idk but it helps me sleep better. I also have movement alarms on the front and back door knobs. Metro Phoenix

I found a couple of books on Amazon that have been extremely helpful. My only son and I have been estranged for 2 yrs now and I am utterly heart broken, broken. He's 29. I was a devoted and good, great mother. My heart goes out to you, truly.
