    Hi marcpro here, sometimes I feel really shit too it's just strange. So I'm here trying to meditate, or helping people!
    Life seems so pointless without duties or passion, I just need to find something to keep going, as I said it's meditating or helping or writing.
    I'm not in danger, but it's just a pretty strange feeling. Also my cousin suicided so I know that it is triggering for this!
    If anyone has advices for situtations like these!

    Hi Marcpro - welcome to SF. I think that the fastest route to feeling like crap is to start pondering the purpose to life or trying to think of reasons to live. I don't think that sort of existential musing ever leads anywhere good. My advice is to find enough things to do that you don't have time to think. Is not medically endorsed or even necessarily "good" advice - but it is what works for me. I keep going by keeping going.

    I hope you find a way to keep going :hug:

    Hi thank you both it's really kind, both advices are really good! You're right @Freya life is meaningless just keep doing things and stop thinking! Thx Petal for your link, and no I wasn't this close too her, but the impact was strong because I wanted to met her before...
