I didn't think I was a particularly jealous person, nor a maternal one for that matter, but since hitting 50, and menopause I seem to have become both.
I have two children who no doubt will be starting families in the next few years. I am so excited about this I just can't wait, but along with this lovely feeling a horrible dark jealousy is building as my ex-husband and his partner live near our children and I am 6 hours drive away.
I feel jealous that his partner will have more time with my grandchildren than I will.
I sound like a horrible person, I wouldn't blame anyone for thinking I am. I want to stop feeling like this. No body knows, I'm too ashamed to say it.
