I ask this because everyday I wake with bad anxiety. I usually never get enough sleep. I live alone, I have no close friends to talk to. My family have moved on with their lives, or have passed away. I have a half sister but she’s 16 years younger than me, and we weren’t raised together so we were never all that close. She lives in another state and grew up with her mother and sisters.
I’m just so alone and afraid. Afraid of what will become of me. I’m also 53 never been married and have no children. The two biggest regrets in my life. I go to work not because I enjoy it but just to be around people and have others to talk to. My life is empty and sad. I do think of suicide every now and then, but I never attempted it or made any kind of plans. It’s just always there, like an option. Anthony Bourdain did it and he had everything, I have nothing
I’m sorry that I’m always a downer, but this is how I feel every morning. Does anyone else live a similar life or feel this way? Thanks for all your heartfelt comments and advice. I read them all and I try to respond.
