Are you sure you're human? Or from Planet 9 possibly?


J/k. It's odd to hear of someone who has never questioned their purpose/meaning/existence in relation to the world around them. I do it on a daily basis, but not nearly as bad as when I went through "the dark times".

I feel extraordinarily blessed. I just celebrated my 26th anniversary, and our marriage is still going strong.

I've got three kids that I love dearly, and while that hasn't been without its trials (some more stressful than others), I wouldn't trade it for anything.

And I have my faith, which has served me well in the tough times, and been a source of genuine connection to something larger than myself (which is somewhat important to me, since my usual natural instinct is to be rather inward focused).

Really, I feel like for me to have what I picture as a "mid-life crisis" would require something external to seriously disrupt the life I'm living now. I don't doubt it could happen, but all I can do is trust to the positive aspects in my life to see me through if (probably when) it does.

You should speak with the pastor of the church you were baptized in.

"Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there you may be also."
--John 14:1-3

I'm sort of in the same boat as Tazz. Maybe my personal mission is different, but I'm thinking at this stage I have more days behind me than in front of me. There is a small bucket list of things I would like to do before I jump in the fire, and I don't see time the same way as I used to. The days/weeks/months just seem to fly by at an alarming rate. It's scary. Plus I have no kids except the dog, my only close relative that lives with me is 94, and I am scared AF about being alone.

I sympathize. I'm 41 and not really healthy (hitting 90 something is unlikely) and my close family is all older than me.

If I recall it was only the single dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine that was linked to a very rare instance of blood clots. Unless you have some sort of allergy to the vaccine contents, I don't recall hearing about any serious problems with either of the two dose vaccines.

Im getting moderna. Now the only allergies i have are seasonal thats it. Pain i can handle since i have a high tolerance for it. Just glad im off the weekend in case of any reaction. I had a battery of tests done before surgery so everything came out ok including heart. The heart strain is what made me pause
