I am posting here because the life I lead is so empty. This situation could easily end in a suicide attempt. Last week, I spent a couple of nights at Gettysburg. While I was there, I came out of my depression. Being home again has shown me again how empty my life is. I do not work anymore and have few social contacts. I have found that I can not help my mother much because it tends to emotionally exhaust me. I feel useless with nothing to live for. I recently read that the baby boomers (which I am a part of) have an increase in the suicide rate. I think I understand why. I have come to the end of my working life; I am not married, and I have few contacts. What am I living for?
