anxious about career, making parents proud and going back to the relationship
In the last two weeks our therapists have answered 211 queries related to mental health.

My story is bit different and many of you will find it absurd or extremely weird but it's true. Do not judge. I am 24 years old, Jobless preparing for an exam since last 2 years, parents growing older, I am gay(discreet) and I am in a relationship (Long distance currently, earlier we used to live in a same city ) a 66 year old man who is married. We love each other, I would not say it's like a boyfriend-girlfriend relationship but we are more like a father and son, he guides me in every step of life and helps me every situation. I am stuck in a lifestyle where I feel I don't have hope with my future. Plus this covid made the situation even worst, because of that no exams and delay in my career, Plus it makes me anxious and created a fear of losing my parents and my 66 Y/o friend. All my school friends are not settled and started earning, some of them even get married and I am still dependent on my parents, if feels really bad. I have lost focus and I have become a porn addict now, also because my 66 y/o doesn't live near to me, I have started casually hook ups in my city which I am very guilty of. I have become extremely lazy person, earlier I used to be very productive person and people used to like me because of my quirky sense of humor. My parents have a high Hopes with me and of course they should've because they have spent a large chunk of money on my education and let me tell you that we come from a very humble background. All I want now is to clear my exam, Start working in the city where my 66 y/o friend lives and make my father retire from his work and give my mom and dad a peaceful and happy life. Please help me people and don't judge me because of my relationship.
