I am married (but not happily). Just because one has a spouse doesn't make one not lonley. I wonder what is worst - being alone or living with a man who acts like I am nonexistant and doesn't respond when I look like I am ready to jump off a bridge. No reaction to my depression. In addition, having a circle of people who are not interested in connecting, or who are disconnected themselves. I have a 9 year old son with autism and I feel so lonesome for him and myself because he doesn't do many things a neurotypical son would do, I have parents who are physically here, but when I talk to them, it's like talking to nothing. when I talk to many people (in general), whether it is my neighbors, people at church, etc., it seems like most people are into themselves. .They have no interest in what I say, just in what they say. They continue to talk about themselves, rarely asking me a question about me. It is common courtesy to reciprocate in conversation, but too many people I have encountered are one-sided talkers. All these things make me feel so alone. Anyone out there relate to what I am saying?
