How does one form an emotional connection with someone when they can’t discuss their past, present or future? The situation in question is high risk becoming critical. Without some sort of emotional connection, things will end very badly with zero chance of recovery. There have never been any friends and family was an option loss decades ago; pets are also a lost option. I thought being on this site I might encounter someone experiencing a similar situation or anything where escaping to a peaceful location would be beneficial for both parties. Your average everyday individual doesn’t want to be brought down by someone in an unfortunate situation. How can years of unwarranted isolation be resolved with more isolation? I felt out-of-place being involved with people dealing with other severe issues because, at the time, I still had a chance to get out and clear. . Words are meaningless for this situation, if my brain doesn’t register the presents of another person and an emotional connection doesn’t exist on some level, the metaphorical door that has been open for so many years will be closed and sealed. For me, the clock has always been ticking and time is running out.
