In brief: "Mid-life crisis"
This is not a diagnostic category, but people use this to describe responses to life transitions occurring from age 37 - 50's.
"midlife" depends on how old you are & how long you expect to live. Unrest may develop around events like a child leaving for college, death of a family member, a birthday into a new decade, etc. You might consider talking through your own situation with a therapist.
