I'm bored with life and I don't know what to do!?
Ever since I was a little girl, all I wanted was to get married, have kids, have a good career, spend time w/ my family & enjoy life. Instead, I'm 36 yrs old, never married, unhappy in my job (& life), & a single parent of a preteen. My parents divorced while I was in college. I have an eating disorder that I battle every day. I have a condition that scarred my legs permanently which makes me self-conscious about getting involved w/ anyone. I haven't been on a date in over 4 years! And to make matters worse my mom, passed away last year, and I just can't shake the despair of never seeing or talking to her again.

I just don't enjoy life anymore. I go to work (from home),watch TV, eat & sleep. I work out daily but still struggle w/ my weight. I've tried online dating & therapy/meds to no avail. I just don't know what to do. I envy young people who have their whole lives ahead of them. I'm almost 40 and feel life is over, I think about suicide a lot...is there any help for me?

I do read books, the problem is deeper than that!

go read a book

Make some friends.

There are hot lines set up in all states for you to call and talk to someone. I suggest going to a doctor sounds like you need to be on some type of anti-depressants. If you ever feel a strong urge to commit suicide call 911 or go to the emergency room. Remember you have a child that needs you.

J *

You most likely need anti-depressants. Although you said meds did not help.

Maybe a change in activities? Try some volunteer work.

Maybe something that validates you as a person of value in the community.

Get a pet if you do not already have one.

Do you see friends regularly?

I know this sounds weird, but GO HIKING. Being in the wilderness is really grounding and helps me to feel better all the time.

seriously though... thats not funny. nice try though. i think you covered everything.

You just need to relax, be glad that your able to even live life. Make some ambitious goals and go for them. And you said you feel self concious about how your body looks and scars on your legs, trust me you don't have it as bad as some. If you really are looking for someone to settledown with then you have to be confident! Best of luck to you and know that suicide is not ever the answer.

woah...how about a suicide hotline...nah...that wouldnt work..

ioknow then..

Well, it surely does not sound like you are bored sweetie, it is a deep deep depression that you are sinking into..loss of interest, sadness..extremely pessimistic also..and still mourning mom's loss..but to be honest with you..you are really not as bad off or as unusual as you may think you are...you need time to mourn, and as far as your life, I think you need to accept Jesus and God into your life, and start counting your blessings...and stay strong..

your life is NOT over, trust me

be thankful for what you have and focus on those things... once you ralize that, youll be happier

anways try joining more activities and clubs for adults, go to a church(idk what ur religion is) make more friends and spend time with them and the ones you have, surround your self with the people you love

good luck! and dont give up

When you are BORED WITH LIFE...

Visit a hospital with very sick people, dying of cancer. Visit a rehab center...with paralized people that wished they could be in your shoes to walk.

Don't be bored with life, appreciate it! Life is a gift. Do you know how many people are given days to live and what THEY WOULD DO to be healthy to continue living.

Next time you are bored with your life, think of the less fortunate. Instead of wasting time thinking negative thoughts, count your blessings! LIFE BEING ONE OF THEM!

Well, Sweetheart don't give up on life. I'm 31 old I have 4 children I go through many things as well and stress is one of them. Life is a journey and it is not easy.I am sorry for your loss,
But everyone has to go through it. I can't tell you to grieve and go on with your life, because some people take longer than others to heal. You have a daughter, and she needs you. Think about her, she needs her mother. Suicide is never the answer. If you keep yourself in that comfort zone of doing the same pattern everyday that's all you know. I work full time I have all boys that give me a headache on a regular, but I keep going, I love my life I'm a very fun person,I love my job & everyone alway loves to be around me. Find a church home and Pray daily, and ask God to help you. You'll see he work wonders, but in his timing. You have so much to live for. I hope I've been some help to you. If need someone to talk too to help you work out certain situations you can e-mail me anytime @ [email protected] Care

Wizard Of OS
Suggest that you talk to a counselor or minister about it. There are some free options available and since I don't know where you live it is hard to tell you where to go. If you live in the US there are some county and city services that are available.

As for suicide consider that you have one responsibilty in your life and that is to your child. If you feel that you are missing your mother then consider how your child will feel losing it's mother at a younger age.

Proud Mama of 4
Try finding a new hobby where you can meet people. Sounds like your in a rut and need a change. I just bought a guitar and am going to teach myself to play. I also have joined boot camp. I am a mom of three and havent done anything for me in ages. THis is the year for ME!

You should probably talk to a therapist too. And not to sound pushy, but maybe church could help you. There are amazing people and a great support system.

Good luck.

I'm so sorry about the way you are feeling right now. i too have been upset at times & what i'd found in common with you is that you have the courage to communicate. it is such an effective way to express yourself. do you agree? there are so many different ways i've connected & made my life more fulfilling, by going through life changes. just to name a few, spirtually, praying & finding a church helped me tremendously. i've found different hobbies at different changes throughout my life. just to name a few i.e. swimming, bowling, meditation, yoga. And one of the most enjoyable things in my life was to spend more of my time watching my child grow from infancy through the stages of toddler. Call me gratiful for the little things, like waking up each day & be able to be thankful for being here, having a daughter that is a reflection of me, laughing, loving and getting through each day.
I'm here if you ever need to speak with anyone

I'm not saying this to be rude, hateful, mean, smart a** or anything else. Get over it. Okay Life doesn't always go the way we planned, you have to learn to go with it's plan for u. I know if someone told me this I would be thinkin smart a**, but I swear I'm not tryin to be, I'm trying to be honest. I wish someone would tell me this, cuz I sit around and feel sorry for myself all day every day, b/c life didn't give me what I had planned.

Heres what u need to do, start going to church, for some odd reason going to church gives ppl confindence get out there within ur community and volunteer, ur a mom host a mom's night out w/some of ur daughters friends moms. And most importantly PRAY about it. He'll be the one u can always count on, but now dont get like me and think u can rush him, it doesn't work that way, God does what he wants in his time not ours.

Fresh choice
Dear armybrat 1989:

"Ok" so things are not looking and feeling so good to you at this time but thank God that you can still see and feel with the two very important physical faculties you were blessed with to help you make a difference in your life. Look around or simply view the evening news there are allot of unwelcome issues out there that certainly can alter ones life. Be thankful that you had the opportunity to attend college and why not turn your self-consciousness in to something more positive. If you can walk then you can do something about it. And as for your mom, I'm sorry for your loss, however; if you want to do her memory well then start being positive and if you are truly thinking that your life is a loss then why not be there for someone else in need and you can begin with your preteen who may just be struggling as well. There are people in need armybratt and you may just be the answer for them. Yup! my advise to you is to say your prayers and then and only then start being the other person. If you don't like the age of 40 well then change the next 40 years of your life and become the book that people are wanting to read about. Be the book of determination and hope for a much better life. When you decide to feel good about yourself and practice feeling good about yourself you will become a magnet to others and you will draw them in beyond your immagination. Its well known that beauty is only temporary but ones image last a life time. Now how do you want to be known?

PS. Do this and the dates will follow. I promise.

Fun Is Life
Just listen to these MP3 files.

Follow your passion and your dreams. Reach for the stars! If you can dream it u can do it!

I know this may sound religious, But.. don't knock it till you try it. I had problems like you. I prayed ( I don't go to church or preach to other people) but I do believe I received my answer. I prayed and asked that I will find my way, find confidence, learn to deal with issues, become more loving, find a partner, be happy etc.. I wrote down what my life would be like if it was perfect. And it made me see what it was I wanted to do with my life. It took some soul searching, but I know I was helped by guidance from above.

Lookout for signs from the universe, especially signs from your mother!!! She would be trying to get messages to you all the time I'm sure. PAY ATTENTION to your dreams, that will be the easiest way she can get through to you. Pay attention to a song that you hear, words you see, articles that pop up from no-where. Either way, you have a spirit which is searching for a way and there is help, A LOT OF HELP you just need to learn how to listen and feel what your spirit (soul) is telling you. You must love yourself yourself no matter what and see that things happen to us for a reason and some things are there to test us and make us stronger. I believe in you and I believe you can come out of this. I will say a prayer as I send this and remember to always live today, not yesterday.. ):

I think there is a lot to live for. If not for yourself , you have a child and even though your mother is no longer physically here, she is still with you. Do not give up on life. There has got to be things that you enjoy. I say focus on those things. Join a church, stay active..keep your mind preoccupied. What is your friend base like? Do you have siblings. Join a support group The main thing is that the way you are feeling comes from within. I would start there ! You have to love yourself enough to know that scars will not keep the right man from finding you. You have to know that it OK to be by yourself and that men can see when a woman is not secure in herself. You have to know that your mother would want you to live your life to the fullest so that her work was not in vain. You have to know that she can still here you when you talk to her. Life is really what you make of it. I have had similar feelings but then I realize that I can get busy living or can get busy dying .....Get busy living !

You have a child to live for. When you have a child you have to stop being selfish and live life for them as well./ When you act depressed or show signed that you have an eating disorder, how do you think you child will feel?? You will give him/her the wrong ideas. Life is not all about being in a relationship. That is not what makes you whole. You should go to the gym meet people and try new things. Good luck. You are not alone, many people feel this way. you just don't know it.

Hang in there. Start by getting some anti-depresents from your doc. Then start doing something for yourself to make you feel better. I'd suggest working out. It can make you feel good all over.

Hey Babe! Life has just begun! I am working on starting a boring club. Your welcome to join it! I haven't been back to myspace to add anything new on it because I am at a place where they block the computer user from even going into myspace. what a bummer. Yep! Babe! I am bored with my life to! Can't seem to get any kind of justice any where. Can't find a man that don't have his thingy in his hands an that's all he wants. Cant find how to become self employed. Can't seem to find happyness anywhere. Than I realized that happyness must come from within inside of yourself. Hard to see it yet that's where I found it. Try something new and adventures in your life. See how you feel after you do it. Well no comment after my last sentance there. Hey you gotta be happy with yourself accept who you are and move up and on with your life We can do it! Hey, now I need to thin of a name for my boring club.

You need to get yourself some new dreams, some goals, something you want to achieve, then spend your waking hours working toward it and your sleeping hours dreaming about it.

And believing 40 is the end of life is very ignorant. You may live to be 90...that's 50 years left to live, 14 years more than you've already lived. Find something you enjoy and love and make those 54 years enjoyable years. Learn to live life to the fullest.

You seem to be Depressed so here are 5 things you can do to feel better.
Exercise. Take a 15- to 30-minute brisk walk every day — or dance, jog, or bike if you prefer. People who are depressed may not feel much like being active. But make yourself do it anyway (ask a friend to exercise with you if you need to be motivated). Once you get in the exercise habit, it won't take long to notice a difference in your mood.
In addition to getting aerobic exercise, some yoga poses can help relieve feelings of depression. Try downward-facing dog or legs-up-the-wall pose (you can find these poses on yoga websites). Two other aspects of yoga — breathing exercises and meditation — can also help people with depression feel better.
Nurture yourself with good nutrition. Depression can affect appetite. One person may not feel like eating at all, but another might overeat. If depression has affected your eating, you'll need to be extra mindful of getting the right nourishment. Proper nutrition can influence a person's mood and energy. So eat plenty of fruits and vegetables and get regular meals (even if you don't feel hungry, try to eat something light, like a piece of fruit, to keep you going).
Identify troubles, but don't dwell on them. Try to identify any situations that have contributed to your depression. When you know what's got you feeling blue and why, talk about it with a caring friend. Talking is a way to release the feelings and to receive some understanding. If there's no one to tell, pouring your heart out to a journal works just as well.
Once you air out these thoughts and feelings, turn your attention to something positive. Take action to solve problems. Ask for help if you need it. Feeling connected to friends and family can help relieve depression. (It may also help them feel there's something they can do instead of just watching you hurt.)
Express yourself. With depression, a person's creativity and sense of fun may seem blocked. By exercising your imagination (painting, drawing, doodling, sewing, writing, dancing, composing music, etc.) you not only get those creative juices flowing, you also loosen up some positive emotions. Take time do something fun for yourself. Find something to laugh about — a funny movie, perhaps. Laughter helps lighten your mood.
Look on the bright side. Depression affects a person's thoughts, making everything seem dismal, negative, and hopeless. If depression has you noticing only the negative, make an effort to notice the good things in life. Try to notice one thing, then try to think of one more. Consider your strengths, gifts, or blessings. Most of all, don't forget to be patient with yourself. Depression takes time to heal.
I hope that help you and remember that life is nice .You are not old and you have an interesting life waiting for you.

of course there is help for you!!! don't worry about the scars on your legs, just wear long trousers, but make your personality shine through so that the scars wouldn't even matter! just smiling can bring up your mood tremendously.
have fun when you have free time! don't just sit on the couch and watch TV, take your son/daughter to a park, a festival, a parade. the possiblities are endless. or go by yourself if they are busy, at school, etc. swings are the best invention since sliced bread! the soaring feeling is so incredible it makes you feel unstoppable! or the slide! that's one of my other favorites. oooh, do you live near a creek? wading in a creek is excellent fun. you can search for little fish and critters or just enjoy the water. take an art class! art is a brilliant way to express yourself and taking a class would allow you to meet new people. all of the above would be a much better way to spend your time. cheaper too! cuz of the electric bill tv builds up. you know what? instead of not watching the tv, get rid of it! people are so much happier without tv in their life. they get out more, spend more time with friends and family, and just in general cheer up. at least get rid of cable. dvd's every once in a while are good though.
a yoga class would be perfect! omigosh, yoga is theee best relaxer ever. since you work out everyday, you'd probably be pretty good since it takes some serious strength sometimes.
try to find a yoga class that is co ed, if you know what i mean jellybean. ; )
i'm so sorry you've had it rough so far, but things can always turn around. i'm really really sorry bout your mum too. my grandmum just died not too long ago so my mum's going through the same thing. whatever you do, don't think about suicide, the thought will just depress you more and what will your preteen do? always remember them and their future. so try to smile and relax, in fact, as you are reading this, start smiling to bring your mood up.
best of luck in the future!
