Lonely is taking over my life

Posted by Steve at March 6, 2012
Tags: Death  2012 March  Money

I'm 52 and was married for 27 years. Five years ago my 17 year old son took his life. It tore out my heart and soul. My wife and I vowed that we wouldn't become another divorce statistic from losing a child. Things seemed to be getting a little better until I found out she was seeing someone else. That tore out what heart I had left. Money is tough too. In 2008 I made $116,000 and in 2010 I made $10,000 at the same sales job. I live in my sisters basement with my two best friends (dogs). They keep me alive but I'm wondering how much longer I can do this. I'm seriously considering taking my life but I don't want to hurt my girls Bella and Ginger (my dogs). I'm just so tired of being lonely and don't know how much longer I can do this. My guess is I'll die alone and be happy with my last breath.

Have you been tested for ADHD? If not, you should consider it. My bf thought he was bipolar or severely depressed and it turns out he had ADHD. He wasnt hyper so youd never know but its something that affects you rmental state of mind so much.

I have 7 and they keep me alive everyday. Ultimately dogs are far better than people anyway so don't think you are missing out on human friendships anyway. they suck!
I understand the loneliness but most of the world is lonely so it is not just you.You can learn to live with it,and eventually you accept it and before you know it ,it is no big deal.Trust me I know! 54 years old, never been married ,live in a foreign country I hate ,cant get back homer (trying for 11 years)don't speak the language,no money etc etc. But I have been blessed with the care of my dogs that would otherwise have been dead by now and totally forgotten about by everyone.
Despite what most people think and are taught sometimes life really isn't about "Us" .
Life sometimes is just about everyone else and we have to do our best to take joy and comfort where we can i.e our animals.
I think the trick is (It worked for me ) is just to try to accept things as they are and maybe next time around it will be better.
Hugs to Bella and Ginger .They love you .
