I am losing the will to live

Hang in there @Miika

I know the feeling. With my back, hip, and knee hurting all the time, it’s hard for me to imagine being alive four years from now. I’m going to talk to my primary care doctor about it November 30th, but I’m not optimistic that anything can be done. I can’t have surgery because I’m alone and have no one to help me. I’m 61 years old.

@mike1, if you need surgery, they can send you to a rehab facility until you can manage on your own. Ask your dr about that.

I know there are people in my life who care for me and like me. But I’m having a hard time believing anyone actually loves me.
I’m also aware many people would miss me if I was gone, but my brain is starting to convince me everyone’s lives would be better in the long run if I wasn’t in it to burden them.

I doubt that everyone’s lives would be better off. Usually everyone is sad when someone passes. I’m gay and had many friends die of HIV back on the 80’s and 90’s. I didn’t feel better off after they died. I just sorely missed then and cried a lot. My significant other back then died of HIV.
