Things I want lose meaning sometimes too. I want nothing else than avoiding trouble.

I have just talked to my cousin. We were so close during childhood. I miss those years. I'm lost.

Richard won't like this but I sometimes think I must just wait for death that is inevitable for everyone.

I think lack of sexual desire loss of direction in life makes me live in my childhood. Things seem meaningless my cousin I talked to she is the same child but we just talked a few words like we haven't shared those memories. Living in childhood is anxious.

It won't hurt Richard, or anyone else.

But that's exactly what you are doing! You're mourning the good old days, but these are the good old days ... or will be, when you've added physical troubles to your emotional ones.

Living in childhood is anxious.


You feel anxious because you're always looking back. It's no longer possible or desirable to live there.

I think lack of sexual desire loss of identity causes this lost feeling and those worries. These are separate or feed each other?

I mean worries and lost feeling results in this miserable me. Do worries have any relation with lost feeling?

Maybe I miss my childhood because I'm still a child emotionally

Seems to me you're entirely turned inwards: your lack, your losses, your emotional state, your childhood. That's not a good way to live your life, and we can all see its results in your thousands of posts on the same subject: YOU.

There's nothing to be gained by focusing on what's wrong in your life. That isn't the way to fix anything.

You've had literally hundreds of suggestions, recommendations and accounts of personal experience from members of the forum, and all you ever say is some variant of That sounds good, for other people -- but I can't. Then it's back to listing all the reasons why your life is so much worse than Average Joe's.

I'm about to do you a favour, although I don't expect you to like it. I will no longer reply to complaints, or questions better suited to a google search that you can do as well as I can.

I will reply as usual to posts showing any of the following:
Determination to feel and do better
What you've tried lately that actually works
Enthusiasm for plans you've made AND
Acknowledgment that your life is pretty good, just as it is.

I watched tv tonight and enjoyed some. That's something new for me.
