I'm new here but very much a regular on MN.
As I had my children when I was young I am a
young Grandma in my mid 40s.
I'm about to lose my job, although my employers can't say this ultimately, it's because I'm 'old' and expensive.
It's the same all over my type of career, I would like to begin another career but I have no idea where to start.
I feel bad at the loss of income, DH is fantastic but I feel like I'm letting him down and I feel lost and I've no idea what I could do next.
Our adult DCs are young, successful and gorgeous, obviously this is excellent but it also reminds me how old I am.
They are full of energy and optimism whereas I feel dragged down by age and responsibility.
Any useful advice for getting my mojo back would be appreciated.
Acceptable? - husband
Not proud - DIL behaviour
