MidLife Crisis Quiz

This is just a short quiz you can take to try and determine whether you might be suffering from a mid-life crisis. A lot of women (and men!) experience one, and these days they're happening earlier and earlier. We're all under a lot of pressure in our lives, from our careers to our families, and we don't always feel like we're measuring up, or that we've achieved those goals we all set for ourselves back in our 20's.

Are you experiencing a midlife crisis, or are you likely to experience one in the future? This quiz will help you determine where you fall on the crisis spectrum and offer some solutions for coping.
