A 44 year old man. No partner, no children. Siblings have no children. Mum is 76, Dad died 4 years ago. What is the point? Its pretty unlikely I will have any children, my mum will die in the next 10 years. Work although well paid has no meaning, value. The thing that has got me down is the 10-15 years. Failed relationships, no children, increasing sense of isolation, lonely. Realisation that my job is meaningless and will continue so. Its hard to see a reason to live. There is no future that is worthwhile to me.
