I think in a few months I'll be ready to apply to entry level web design jobs.

- Find some sort of employment finally.

-Move away from my crummy small town(and hopefully from the state of NY) to somewhere I can reinvent myself... or somewhere I can truly be alone. lol

-find a genuine connection with another, whether that be friend or lover.

With any sort of weakness,

Just play this song and go to Tixis.

The biggest of all would be moving to another country. I want to get out of this damned place.

Not die dead in a ditch. Lookin' about 50/50 right now. Depends on whether or not the gastro issue kills me first.

For forty-seven years I've put up with it now. I must stop Christmas from coming ... but how?

Probably suicide eventually.

But, I do hate people, and people want me to kill myself. So it will depend.

It's pretty difficult (not sure why people say otherwise,) if it was easy I'd have done it already.

I don't know that I have many long-term goals - other than not to spend the last part of my life in an institution like one of my Grandfathers. I feel like my mental health issues are getting worse and that frightens me more than just about anything.

Get my CompTIA A+ certification and have a career in computer repair. Get my driver's license. Move out of my dad's apartment and find roommates. Save up to move out of Massachusetts and live in the tropics. After that.....live my life and see what happens.

When will the time come when we feel complete?

I have no idea what that means - but you could also learn how to program or make websites and then go and live wherever you wanted - like in an Asian country for example. There are people doing exactly that right now in places like Thailand etc. .

Know your ACE (adverse childhood experiences) score?
Sometimes, SA is a symptom of significant developmental, attachment or interpersonal trauma (emotional neglect counts). If you're still stuck after you've tried SA treatments such as CBT and exposure, research C-PTSD and see if it resonates. Here's an awesome resource. Complex PTSD: From Surviving to Thriving

To build up enough chutzpah to quit the career path that leaves me drained and has worsened my anxiety. Preferably with some plan for how to create income from home. I want to be ME without feeling like I need to apologize. I am a school psychologist and I hate the education pow-wows and constant “collaboration” with extroverts. It’s a constant battle within myself.

My primary long term goal is to not be around long term. That would be great.

Nobody loves me but my dog, and I think he might be jivin', too.

My goal is to do more housework. I did the laundry the day before yesterday but I also want to take out the garbage which I haven't done for a long time and wet wipe the kitchen floor, etc. I should be helpful too.

Sorry to hear how you're feeling. Doesn't your wife make you happy?

My wife and I have fun together, but happiness needs to come from within.
