If you have no family or friends and you are faced with fear of getting old alone it makes you hang on to what you have regardless of consequences. This in itself can be a problem. I have tried therapists - it did not help

Maybe the wrong sort of therapists ? Being old alone isn't automatically awful, nor is it inevitable. But you'd need a practical, CBT type therapist, rather than one of those airy-fairy lie down and tell me about your childhood types !

Well you can only look on the good side, at least you are wealthy.
Money cannot buy happiness but at least provides a more comfortable state of misery.
