I do believe that I am going through one of the most difficult times of my life...
And the thing is, I can't talk about it.

When I was 20, my girlfriend's mom killed herself, and I developed a pacing habit because of it for a few years.

This is worse than that.

No funny habits or anything, just a lot of shit for a 50 year old man to face.

Oh well.

What the fuck anyway.

My shrink even blew it off.

What do you do?

Ask for vibes?

I don't think so.

This feels like the end game.

Physical and mental. Can't begin to even talk about it. Typing helps, so no response is fine. I'm probably off to bed soon anyway. If I let it all out, I would write a book.

1. I think that you should write your book, LeftyFingerPop.
It would probably be very therapeutic.

I hope that you feel better soon. :hug:

9. I don't even know you, but I care.
We're each of us in some kind of stew these days. Caring about each other's welfare is the only way to get through -- it separates us from the cold-hearted folks.

We're here to listen.

24. A book is overwhelming. Just journal a little each day. Or post like you did here.
Dude, I have an idea of what you are going through. I'm near 50, and my life is in the process of exploding.

But life is a journey; I think we just keep on in the hopes of better days ahead. They will come, if we let them.

22. One freakin' day at a time
or minute at a time is the way to do it man, pace, or do whatever, just keep moving forward and walk through whatever all is going on.

Sorry you are dealing with so much that it feels like the end game. Hope it's not.

take care of yourself dude

:hug:

23. Hang in there
If you're feeling too lazy to write the book, get a cheap little recorder and dictate the damn thing to yourself. Even if nobody else ever hears it, you'll feel better.

:hug: :pals: :loveya:

25. I like you. I love reading your posts
You're one of the reasons I come to the Lounge. Your OP said "typing helps" so I'm going to add my voice (or typing ;-) to everyone who is saying to write it down. You never know, somebody else might be feeling the same thing and it will help them too. :hug:

27. I hope you'll confide in someone
And if your counselor isn't helping, then you may want to get another.

Thinking of you. :pals:

28. Keep a journal. It really helps when something huge happens. You cannot be expected
to process it all at once. Keep a journal my friend.
