Have you experienced a time in your life when you felt so empty for no reason?
Yes. It's called depression, and if it happens too often, for no logical reason, and affects your functionality, you ought to get proffesional help. Don't take that as an insult. I've no idea if you need medication, therapy, or anything at all.
Yeah but if you take those medicine - it's hard to get a professional job because that's considered a security risk. It's still has stigma attached to it.
I feel friendless because nobody want to be with a depressed weirdo. No purpose to live because I feel I have no true friends. Self- defeatist - always was - always make others uneasy. Over eat, spend, sex, porno, net, cigarettes, booze and drugs to distract myself from being ostracized. Palpable despair.
When I happy - I act like a jerk. real pain DSMV has no soul searching epiphany. What's the difference in chemicals that makes me a happy camper? Oblivion Kabuki self-oblivious - denial fiction, repression, anxiety.
The Rx does not cure - only maintain like diabetes insulin. But American healthcare is all about the chemicals. As if an uncurable hopeless case that is not worthy the trouble to take care of the core of this unremitting deep depression.
But the raven, sitting lonely on the placid bust, spoke only,
That one word, as if his soul in that one word he did outpour.
Nothing further then he uttered - not a feather then he fluttered -
Till I scarcely more than muttered `Other friends have flown before -
On the morrow he will leave me, as my hopes have flown before.'
Then the bird said, `Nevermore.'
`Be that word our sign of parting, bird or fiend!' I shrieked upstarting -
`Get thee back into the tempest and the Night's Plutonian shore!
Leave no black plume as a token of that lie thy soul hath spoken!
Leave my loneliness unbroken! - quit the bust above my door!
Take thy beak from out my heart, and take thy form from off my door!'
Like Daniel J. I'm not a qualified pyschologist or psychiatist, so don't take what I say here as being absolutely and profoundly correct.
It is not unusual to, on that rare occassion, feel that life is empty and without meaning. It is probably a call from your own inner self, the Real You, telling your lesser self (the little self which associates with and identifies with your ego-thinking and feeling) that something is not quite right in your life and you need to take heed. It could mean a change is needed.
I went through such a stage many years ago at age 31 to 35. But relief came for me when I changed both jobs and country, risking it all to start off a new life in a new land. Sometimes such drastic action is necessary, I suspect. At other times, not. You might simply need to determine what you really want out of life; define it, put it in a concise written form, then start to plan and work towards achieving it. Before you know it, you could find yourself enjoying the journey.

What is the worst physical pain you have ever experienced?

About three years ago my hair started falling out, and continued for about two years. It fell out in the same two sections of my head - near the hairline above my ears. To this day I have no idea why my hair began and continued to fall out. About two years later it stopped. The bald patches started...
