I honestly don't know what to say but I feel that I should respond to this post. Sometimes I feel lonely, too, but I do have family to turn to- although I don't really have friends. It is so true how everyone needs to be loved and I am crying for you right now as I type. I think it is beautiful how you turned your post around and, although you are having a difficult time at the moment, you can still see how awesome life is and encourage everybody to stay safe and talk during the low times.

I hope you find something that brings you joy to get through this time. Although you are 47, that does not mean you are supposed to have certain things in your life. Do not think you are a failure because you do not meet society's expectations of being well off in life. There are no set milestones of when you are supposed to get married, when you should own a house, etc. Everybody goes through their own trials and set backs, some more than others. Stay strong and fill yourself with things you enjoy. If you ever want to chat, just message me, ill be here and ready to listen 😊

Unfortunately suicide rates are increasing, but although they are it does not mean there is no help. Are you seeing a therapist of any sort to help you through this? If not, I would recommend trying to find one. It will not always happen on the first try, though. Sometimes the first therapists will not be a benefit for you and you have to keep looking to find the right one. Unfortunately it seems as though the condition comes on very easily and hard but requires great amounts of effort to slowly rise up out of it. Best wishes to you and I hope that you will make it through this!

I am always ready to give a good listen :) I am sorry that you are wanting help but not getting what you need. Anger about what? If you want you can message me privately, will that be okay? I just want to try and help

Just know that there are people who give a damn u are not facing this alone...i said acouple of days ago that u could be in a room full of people and still be alone ..in some respects that is true but being alone and feeling it is something different..if that makes sense...

I am here, I am on my own too, my vertigo which started my anxiety is back with a vengeance, so I can’t drive, keep thinking there’s a reason for it, but can’t figure it. This site has been a god send to me this year, I know that. My Christmas is going to be quiet, went fir a walk yesterday that helped, might do same today. Love to you all, I pray fir peace for all of you. X

Hello Mr. G.! Do you have a first name you would like to share? I'd like to be a friend and using first names always seems to help a bit with the connection.

It's Christmas morning here in the US, and I'm feeling just like you. One can feel alone and unloved even if they're married. I woke up today to an empty house. My husband went out this morning without a word. He does that a lot. I sent him a text saying just that. He replied he went out for eggs and bacon. Imagine that. He didn't even ask me to go. That's the sorry state my marriage is in. He has me believing I am to blame for everything. You see, I suffer with anxiety and depression which is something he totally doesn't understand. I'm stuck between a rock and a wall. Either way I turn seems to be a dead end. So, I believe being married isn't always the best thing in life. Finding the right person is.

I did buy a beef tenderloin for today, but my heart just into preparing a meal. I'm too sad. How did your meal turn out? It would be lovely to hear you enjoyed it.

Life sure is complicated, but I'm glad we have a Saviour that came into this world to love and care for us. It was the greatest gift I have ever received.

Love and Blessings to you across the pond.

I am sorry u feel that way especially today...we take advantage of the people we love and we dont realise it.. maybe u need to talk to your husband and let him know how depressed and unhappy u really are.(may be he does not realise your pain).i understand he might not listen to u but he listened to u when he first meet u so he can listen to u now..i am not giving advice ....u loved each other once so may be he lost focus on what is important...(each other)

Such a sweet reply. You have a heart. I can't imagine you being alone. Someone is missing out on a wonderful man. It's obvious in your reply. Would you believe I think you could be right? I saw a little glimmer of hope today thanks to you. Something always happens when you least expect it. I think I should make a new post. Be well and know there are people out there that love and care about you.
