"I do a lot of work as I want a lot of things"
Spending lots of time with work, friends and family, Louise rarely gets a moment of rest for herself even for having food. She wakes up almost every day around 6 am doing a lot of work during the day and goes to sleep around midnight. “When I was married we had a daily nap which I hated. I really don’t like to sleep in the middle of the day. I think it’s a waste of time.”
Now she is living with Mona, a veterinarian, whom she met in the beginning of the year through Facebook and decided to live together on her farm to help each other in work. Mona helps by feeding the horses and birds and in sharing some moments of fun.
Mona, a friend and a vet, lives at Louise's place.

Although passing childhood with step-fathers and foster-siblings at her mother’s house, Louise grew up in peace. “I decided never to leave this house. Still, I think the same way although I’m not living here anymore,” said Louise.
But the house burnt down 3 years ago and it became one of the worst memories of her life. She says: “I lost a lot of dreams. I needed to have new dreams and good memories. I did a lot of things to recollect memories again even by digging in the ashes of the burnt house. Memories are very important to me.”
Louise lived about 10 years with her boyfriend, Benjamin, married at age 27 and divorced after two years.
“After my divorce from Benjamin I was feeling so lonely. I kept my life busy and tense. I don’t say that was a wise decision or not but I would say that it was a brave decision to stay alone and deal with everything all by myself.”
