    Trying not to sound whingy but I have absolutely nothing in my life that is of any real value. No reason to get up in the morning except for therapy... to talk over the bloody failures of my life and why I'm as f*cked up as I am. Even my psychologist doesn't really think that things can change. The people who love me most are my family and I live 4 hours drive from them. When I'm with them I'm not happy and want to get away again. There is a big black hole inside me. A heart made of ice. Nothing touches me. Nothing interests me any more. So why do I drag my useless self through each meaningless day? Any hints would be welcome as the grinding mind-numbing boredom is killing me a second at a time.

    damn....maybe a new psychologist? personally, I find reading is as good a way
    as any to escape the real world. sometimes it's hard to concentrate. sometimes it bloody impossible. I'm not real good at this. why does any thing have to have a particular value? do you like ridiculous farcical satirical
    comedy type stuff? it helps me a lot. really. PM me if you want to. I hate
    to see anyone feel this way :unsure:

    Maybe finding some new hobbies might be a start?

  6. Sorry i'm late replying...you NEVER whine!! You caught me off-guard! No - you CAN'T die of boredom - and that's the hell of it!!!! If only we COULD go gently into that good night - like a bad movie trailer ended - popcorn spilled on the floor and we don't give a good goddamn anymore!

    Leave it indeed to our contemporary resource - Monty Python!!

    'Fraid not. :sad: I think it's the purposeless of my existence... not just now but my whole life, that is dragging me down. I'm of a religious bent.... so how do I justify to God the oxygen I've been sucking up all these years and yet have done nothing with my life. I am nothing. I have nothing. I've done nothing.

    I don't think you need to justify anything to God or anyone, Sarah. You may not think you have accomplished anything but I am sure others think differently. You have suffered and survived through many obstacles. On this forum alone you have shared your wisdom and support with so many people. Your words have no doubt touched lives you don't even know exist.

    If you could die of boredom I would commit suicide by watching the next McCain-Obama debate.
     
  13. I've often taken comfort and solace in remembering how freaking small we all are...not that we are utterly insignificant...but that our perspective tends to get stunted and warped. One can only do what one can do while here... The rest - plainly, pure and simple is not our responsibility. It will end when it ends... OHMmmmmmmm
