I just do not feel that I have anything more to offer & nobody has ever been interested in me, even my parents, who are still much alive & planning their 60th wedding aniversary party for next year.

That's really sad to read that you feel like that OP. There is obviously a lot more to this, do you have friends you can speak to? If you are feeling down, the Samaritans are brilliant to ring.

Hi op, please talk to someone about this. Whether that be your gp, the Samaritans, a friend or a sibling. Do you have a family? Have you always felt this way? I'm sorry I can't offer more advice other than please speak to somebody about how you're feeling.

Bless you OP. You need to speak to someone professional so that you can sort your head out. Don't harm yourself. You're worth more than that. xx

This sounds like elements of depression. You can get help. You won't always feel like this I PROMISE YOU THAT. Speak to your GP. Good luck.

Hi OP, please go to your GP tomorrow. Go before the weekend looms, even if you have to go to a local walk in centre and wait. There is help out there that can work wonders, I know. Talking anonymously on here is a great first leap X

Hi OP,

We're going to move this over to our Mental Health topic now where we are sure you will get lots of support and advice. Please do seek RL help and advice from your GP.

Sending much love from MNHQ.

Op do you mean you are just generally musing about death?
I think about dying sometimes. I'm 31. I think about it in a 'hope I have provided my DC with all the skills they will need for the future, hope I have tied up loose ends with everyone I need to, and i hope it will be quick and painless' sort of way.

Or do you mean something else? You can keep chatting here, but if you were my friend, even vaguely, I'd like you to feel you could call me if you were feeling low.
It's not too late at 10pm. Is there anyone you could phone for a chat?

flowers and (((hug)))

OP please do talk to your GP, they'll understand and be able to offer support and suggestions. It does sound like it could be depression.

Hi OP, just wondering if you were able to go and see your GP today?
