Q.

I feel like giving up on life

Hey Doc I am 22 years old, simple guy who lives with his parents. The problem is that I was an average person all my life, didn't have many friends like you can tell I have no friends. And then suddenly a girl comes in my life, gives me the love that I was searching for. I was a lonely kid, my parents didn't have time for me and all bIt i got that love from her. It' s been 2yrs since she passed away, we were together for 7 yrs. After that I locked myself down. Now the problem is I miss her and I am all alone. I dont have anywhere to go. My parents don' t have time for me. I don' t have friends, I am an anti-social person who lost everything, his family, his love, his money, his respect everything now the life I am living is pointless. What should I do all I keep thinkin of is killing myself that's all i ever needed was love now i am lost !!!! I hope you can suggest something....

Hello Axe,
Don't give up.  If you had given up and shut down 8 years ago, you would never have met her or enjoyed her love.  Maybe your parents don't have the basic skills of giving love ; some people don't ; and that didn't enable you to learn how o love and be loved.  But it's never too late to learn. 
And you began learning in this important relationship with her.  I'm certain he would want you to find someone else who will love you, and she would be distressed to see you shutting yourself away again, and despairing.
Bereavement can be difficult for many of us, and there is important grief work to be done ; so you can work through it, so as to remember the person you lost with joy and not bitterness,  and to celebrate them and their life, in new love.
Do arrange to see a good counselor to achieve this. It's what you deserve
