In the year + i have belonged to this site, i have rarely come across a posting from someone in a life situation similar to mine. By this i mean being almost totally isolated, having no family connections or close friends. In reality I have only one person I could call friend at all, and that person is my X and sick and tired of my heartbreak and ceaseless depression. So we communicate rarely. I live alone. I work, so am forced to be around people for 30 hrs a week. Outside of that, I usually don't hear from anyone. There are a couple of men who occasionally contact me to use me for sex. I am fine with this...I want no sex unless it is casual. So often people respond here with, "tell a loved one," or "think of how you will hurt those who love you." But what if you truly have no one? And am I the only one?
