    Care to elaborate?

    Just for the record; just know that it could always be worse, no matter what your issues might be (unless, of course, it relates to webOS).

    The problem with people saying that, is that of course someone always has it worse... the issue here is my life is vastly worse off than most. I find it a bit insensitive anyone says that stuff to anyone.the average person all in all has it way better off than i do.

    I just finished treatment for breast cancer a month ago.
    Have battled pelvic pain for 6.5 years... which btw effects everything you do in life. it was caused by a surgeons mistake.
    watched my money and my youth run out as i have tried to free myself from pain and agony.
    I am outside of the statute of limitations so i will NEVER get reimbursed for the hell that ihave gone through.

    I put off college due to not being able to sleep well or think well enough to pass classes... id know.. ive tried.

    I am turning 27 in november and havent lived a day in my life since the age of 20.

    you should see a counselor. (if you aren't already)

    seriously, they help. that's what they're there for.

    also if you're battling depression, there is medication for that. it can take up to 5 years to find correct medication for it. but it's worth it and it DOES HELP.

    you just need to take the first step, and keep moving with it. and don't ever stop.

    counselor first, i recommend seeing your PCP and recommend a specialist

    I used to belong to a support group for women who have gone through breast cancer... I made a really good friend on there.... she past away a year ago. the most important relationship ive ever had will never be again... they got married 2 months ago.. its been a 6 and a half year battle, but in a lot of ways my life before it feels like yesterday. To me, time froze, but to everyone else there has been a 6-6.5 year gap where they have healed and moved on. Ive grown more aware of my aging and i used to look a hell of a lot better than i do now. i had plans and goals and they are all shattered now.

    This might sound flippant, but have you ever been in an airplane that takes-off during a dark, stormy day?

    What happens, once you get above those dark, scary storm clouds?

    The sun is shining so bright, so beautifully, as if nothing is wrong down on the ground.

    The sun is always shining, even during the "storm".

    Hi MarketPantry,

    Judging by your picture, you're very attractive. Age 27 is about the time you finally realize you're an adult. Battling cancer can be very depressing. As fxspec06 pointed out, there are medications that can really help with the feelings you are expressing on this forum. So, why don't you see your Primary Care Physician and discuss your situation. I bet you'll be glad you did.

    I can relate to this part. I've been there. And yes, you do get depressed because all that time is gone, and you can't get it back. The hard part is realizing and accepting that it just doesn't matter if you get a late start. Age is just a number, and it does not determine anything, unless you let it. Doesn't determine how old your friends should be, where you should be in life, or even how much time you have left. If you feel 20, get some 20-year-old friends, go back to school and live like a 20-year-old, if that's what you want. Now that you're (almost) 27, you at least should have a better idea of what you want out of life than you did when you were 20, so whatever that is, do that, and don't worry about lost time or getting a late start. It really doesn't matter.

    I don't know what it was that finally allowed me to see things this way, but now that I do, I am a much, much happier person than I have ever been, and it's all because of my new outlook on life. The way I see it, each and every day that I wake up as a living human being is a gift, and the most awesome gift anyone could possibly receive. So it doesn't really matter to me how lousy my life might seem in comparison to others, or how far behind it is. It truly doesn't. I wake up with a smile on my face, and I am generally happy throughout the day, no matter what happens. Compared to being alive, everything else is just minor details. And as cheesy after-school-special as it sounds, life--karma, the gods, God, or whatever you might believe in--has smiled back. It seems that once your outlook on life improves, you can't help but improve your own life.

    But if you do have trouble getting there on your own, don't worry, you don't have to get there on your own. Counselors do actually help. They will help you peel away everything that is getting in the way of your own wants and desires, then push you to act on them. And sometimes we all just need a little push.
    Touchscreens are a fad.

    I know someone who started college in her late 20's, and said that not jumping into college straight out of high school was the best way to do it. It gave her time to "grow up" after high school, and it drove her crazy at times seeing the kids in college partying 24/7 on their parents' dime and not studying one thing while she was paying her own way and trying to find time to study while working a full-time job. She graduated with high honors from a big regional university in her early 30's, with a GPA over 3.95 if I recall correctly.

    If it helps, I work for a college that had a star student athlete pass away from leukemia last month. He knew that he was sick and the odds weren't good for recovery, but I can't help being inspired by him for showing up to play in every game last spring while fighting a battle that I'm sure that you can relate to.

    Long story short, don't let your belief that you are too old to go to college or have some fun in your life hold you back. This time of the year is tour season for most college admissions departments, and I strongly encourage you to go tour some campuses if for no other reason than to see that you will blend right in as if it were 2003 all over again.....
