    I'm sorry to burden everyone here with my problems.
    I just thought I would write them down and see if they make any more sense here than they do in my head.

    My whole family has deserted me over the past year. My wife left me for someone else, then divorced me.
    My kids have grown up and don't have time for dad, even if I contact them.

    my job disappeared and there is nothing else for me.

    I don't have friends that I can talk to.

    I have thought about simply just walking into the sea, but I don't want to cause a problem for the people that would recover my remains.

    I think I will just do it here, quietly in my apartment.

    Thank you for listening.

    Hi Just and welcome...it is so difficult to deal with so many losses, it is no wonder you are feeling so sad. Is there a way to make a weekly/bimonthly appointment with your children so you know you have contact with them? Sometimes we think ppl do not want to be with us, that we are a burden, when in fact, we are pushing them away...maybe there is a midground there...just my 2 cents...big hugs, and welcome again, J

    They have moved away from this area, so its difficult. They rarely even speak on the phone.

    Have you tried calling them up and seeing what's up?

    Just keep trying to contact them Richard. I'm sure that your children still love you. They're probably just really busy with their lives and don't find the time to come and visit you. Also, you could take up some new hobbies. Retirement can be scary for some, because it seems like there isn't much to do, but if one is creative, then one can find many things to keep busy. Also, if you have grandkids, I'm sure they will want to see you. Don't give up. :hug:
