There is a tendency currently to shy away from using the word "normal". I presume this has something to do with stigma associated with the word which doesn't belong there. "Normal" seems to have been lumped together with "desirable" or "acceptable", which is not remotely what the word means.

In this case the posters feelings are exactly normal.

Normal: Conforming to a standard; usual, typical, or expected
Me: male, 43, straight, non-hierarchical, independent
