Life is getting me down so much, I can't see how I can "fix it"
I'm doing the routines, and things I need to do daily because I have a responsibility to do them.
But I'm getting so bogged down by the futility and pointlessness I feel like I'm drowning.
I'm losing all patience with the kids because they do nothing to help anything.
I'm in a marriage that isn't a partnership, I feel like I'm on my own with many responsibilities and not taken seriously when I say things I say. Either that or just not cared about.
I'm trying to stop thinking that I should be happy with anything and just deal with things as they are, get on with it and take small pieces of enjoyment when I can although they're few and far between. But inside I've got this shitty energy building, I'm snappy and want to cry. Typing this my face and throat hurts where I want to cry. I thought about writing my own thread but I don't know if I want advice.
On top of everything all I see day after day is how completely fucked the world is and how my children will suffer. How everyone is suffering.
Life seems utterly pointless for everyone. I'm not looking at others and thinking their life is better than mine, although some seem less hard, ultimately it's all just pointless, were just fucking everything up for ourselves and those that follow.
I'm completely done in.

I already know I'm destined to be unloved and alone forever, just want to end it all

Mobile phones, social media, email, the internet, being able to talk to complete strangers at the click of a button.
The world and all the people in it have never been more connected.

Yet it seems like people have never been more alone.

Yes, I've long since spotted this. I wrote about it in 2007.

It was guesswork and opinions on what I saw at the time, but there is clear proof of it now, in that this young generation socialise far less.

Why's it so hard to cook for myself? Felt faint so thought I should eat, got stuff out the fridge, didn't really want it maybe that's the problem. Felt like a monumental task to cook and eat. Had to stare at it a while before making myself start.

I want to shut down my Facebook, but there's a few connections I need on there for convenience. I can't see if there's a way to ignore everybody/everything else

click on person and 'unfollow', This means they still friends, but doesn't show anything on your feed

People are pretty amazed when I tell them I'm not on Facebook, this is mainly due to social convention or rather defiance of it 'cos everybodies on it.

Thanks. I've unfollowed nearly everyone. In fact I re-followed some that I forgot I unfollowed and had to re-unfollow them :scratcheshead:
Unfollow now looks like a stupid word
