"All alone" is an illusion. You are not alone. If at all possible,
get yourself to a 12-step meeting of some sort - Codependents
anonymous, adult children of alcoholics, something like that.
there are people out there who will support and listen to you.
it costs nothing. you can connect with other people. these
groups saved my life. later, i got hooked up with a psychologist
and a psychiatrist...but the first step was getting connected to
people who were going through what i was going through.
the purpose of your life will start to unfold...it's a lifelong
process, always changing.
if you feel so hopeless that you want to give up, please
please call a hotline or a friend or a coworker and
tell them what you feel. you're not in a position to
decide whether life is worth living or not. first get
some help. then decide if life is worth living.
