Hey everyone,

I never thought I would get to a point in my life like this.. Just feeling really alone and hopeless. Things have been rough in the past but I always saw a way through. I am a reasonable and logical person. But now it feels like things are just going to get progressively worse and there is nothing I can really do but accept having a pretty horrible quality of life or just end it.

The reality of the situation is I am a 28 year old male (almost 29) living with the parents. No job, no education, havent had a sexual experience for 7 years, completely isolated for close to 3-4 years with no friends (except ones from the past when I used to be semi-normal but which are fading very very quickly). I am riddled with physical problems which, though not yet fatal physically, are completely destroying me psychologically. I have tried multiple kinds of therapy but to no avail. I am weighing heavily on my parents mentally and monetarily and becoming nothing but a burden to them.
I keep telling myself I need to try and co-exist with these problems and get out and live my life but after so many attempts it is apparent that will not happen. I feel like I have done everything in my power to try and remedy my situation but things continue to get progressively worse. I am up against the wall and I really cant believe I have actually come to the point where suicide seems like a logical answer. I wake up in hell everyday and I dont know what to do anymore.

total eclipse

Hi John...so glad you posted...you are not a failure, you are in pain and have other complications impeding your ability to do other things...are there less conventional therapies like massage or such that might help? are there any specialists you can see to explore if other things are available to you? Please speak with you MD and see...also, please keep posting as there are so many ppl here who relate to what you have written...J
Hello John and welcome!

I'm sorry that you are having these troubles and that the therapies haven't worked. Do you want to describe what you tried and what results you got?

Can you describe the physical problems?

I'm a big fan of meditation, qi-gong, and chinese medicine. these things might help. also in many cases, regular mild aerobic activity.

If you can get to a better place physically, then you might be able to move to an environment that is more positive for you.

I hope that things get better soon!
