the thought of living to old age or even past 40 just makes me miserable, I hate life as it is, why would I want to live any longer than I already have

Being dead is the same place you were before you were born. It's a nice place, but why not make the use of the time on earth you have now? You need to find your passion and your tribe.

When I was in my early 20s I was positive I would die before 27. And I kind of did. I had a massive breakdown where I literally cried everyday for almost a year.

What broke me out of it was going back to school. I was reborn. I had purpose. I had something to focus on besides me and my thoughts.

I always suspend any reminders that I'm going to be old and wrinkly. What scares me the most is the loneliness. I already have troubles holding friendships as it is, how the hell am I going to do when I'm 50? I guess we need to trust that our peers and including ourselves will be wiser and more forgiving in social situations. Also keep in mind with how fast the world changes with technology and how hell bent this generation is over it, I have a feeling that we'll have a bach of old people with completely different mentalities than the previous baby boomers.

With age comes wisdom, they say.
Don’t let that feeling get to you. Positive thinking is very important. You still have so much to fulfill in your life.

I hope you feel better soon.

You're thinking too far into the future if you're worrying about life at 40. Fact is you don't know what life's gonna be like at 40 so don't worry about that now.
Just give yourself some time and try to make a few small improvements for now.

I feel the same way. What is there to live for anyway? All I have to look forward to in life is working and fulfilling my basic needs like feeding myself and putting a roof over my head. That doesn't sound happy at akk
