I hate to go out and rarely do. When I do go out I feel horrible afterwards. I have a constant struggle with energy I try to fix with drugs (prescribed) and alcohol (minimal amounts) but it’s useless. I have a wife and baby I love. But I know I have no purpose. I try to find things to occupy my time but I’ve lost an activity I loved. Now I’m lost, with only these 4 walls to keep me company
I’m struggling with similar. Light therapy helps a bit but then notice a drop in energy after few hours
I’m the same way. Barely go out at all.
Me too dude. 666999
I am a shut in too except for appointments and grocery shopping mostly. Just started a day program to get me out of the house.
I don’t go out much either. Usually just to appointments or the gas station for a soda.
Being a husband and a father is a huge purpose. You are very important in their lives. Don’t believe that you have no purpose, because you do.
Other than work and groceries, doctor I go no where
Thank you for the kind words, baby and wifey are very important to me, but what I mean is outside of that I have no passion. I do feel very lucky to have them both
I stare at walls as Bodhidharma did
I hardly go out other than help taking my Mom to day care twice a week and doctors appointments.
I’ll go to some stores once in a while.
I don’t really go out unless my mom makes me. This will likely change when I start college.
I struggle with that too. I’m really sorry you’re feeling so down on yourself. Maybe everyday you could come up with something positive about yourself. You could even ask your wife what she loves about you, and try to believe her about those positive qualities.
I’m a shut-in too. I leave the house a maximum of three hours a week, usually 1/2 to 2 hours.
I hate to leave my apartment too. But, somehow I bought tickets to Shen Yun, an Asian dance, song, ballet and opera show that is supposed to be out of this world according to all accounts. I am very much looking forward to it. It is on Feb. 2nd.
I also bought a ticket to see a pianist at the local Music Conservatory who is supposed to be very, very good. He’s supposed to play Phillip Glass’s music.
I have a ticket to the opera to see Les Enfant’s Terribles too which I have never seen before so, I’m looking forward to that. That’s on April 13th.
I hope I don’t chicken out and not go to some of them. That would be such a waste of money. I am going by myself to all of them. No one else I know is even remotely interested in the arts.
I can arrange transportation to all of the shows.
Wow! I wish I could see Shen Yun and the pianist. I can’t afford Shen Yun. I bet you’ll really enjoy those performances
Yes, I am really looking forward to all of these performances immensely. I am fully aware of how blessed I am to be able to see all of these shows. G-d has truly blessed me in many ways.
That’s awesome @SkinnyMe!!! I hope you have a great time!!!
Oh, I do plan on it. Shen Yun will probably be the performance of a lifetime, I am sure.
