Hello BT, Good to hear from you again. I know what it is to be immobilized. Very frustrating in so many ways.
Your ex ( I don't know what other skills he has ) is a genius at making you fel guilty when you have no reason for guilt. Him staying with you seems it will never be a good idea, and always seems to bring problems. Sorry to hear about the Denmar episode, and the sterilization, though that may prove to have been a wise decision.
Hopefully eternal life, if it comes, will not merely be an endless repetition of THIS life, or it wouldn't be at all appealing, and would be totally pointless. But all religions I know of which believe in an afterlife, see it as dramatically iferent from and better than, this one. I tend to agree with your outline of the problems of conceptualizing such an afterlife --- the rules might need to be rather complex. I suspect the answer would lie in the "very diferent" aspect of this ; and by asuming our structures would apply, we might be missing the point.
Similarly, as is often the case in Depression, I feel you may be missing some of the points of life as we know it, though you could re-dicover these. Life has to be about more than just living -- hat seems to be what you're saying, and I'd agree. And you haven't yet found what that more needs to be, that brings meaning to the process. That's what my old friend Viktor Frankl was always talking about, about the central importance of Meaning in life. We can accept any form of life so long as we can find it meaningful. And we have to find what, for us, gives meaning.
