To the best of my knowledge, I have never felt lonely or bored: am I mentally ill?

My mind cannot conceive of either and my heart is perplexed. Why or how can anyone feel that way? I have never missed anyone, even when in the Service at 19. Yes, missed the food somewhat but not my family. They were there. All living their lives. What's to miss? Friends? Same thing. There is much to think about so how can someone be bored? And imagination does wonders. So many worlds to explore. Being bored to me is a lazy and self-centered mind. Yet that does not mean my attitude is right. It is so common to feel those things that I must be missing something. Right? But neither make any sense to me. Foolishness.

I'm with you on this one, Rumi. Life is so full of amazing things and opportunity; there is no time to feel lonely or bored. The fact that we feel this way and have a healthy outlook on life suggests that we have the proper mix of brain chemicals like serotonin. People with a shortage of serotonin become depressed and often attempt suicide if not treated with drugs. When people commit suicide, everyone asks --- why. Why would they do that when they had everything and so much to live for. People don't realize the demons that lurked in the person's head, the torment that they endured. We are the lucky ones, Rumi. We are not mentally ill. But neither are the one's with chemical imbalances in their heads; they just need treatment -- drug and social therapeutics.

Live life to it's fullest, Rumi, and don't apologize for it.

Get some chemotherapy to clean out the dumb in your brain, you’ll really thank me later if you do, if you don’t, we’ll stay foggy and under the low hanging clouds.

I spent over 6 weeks alone, camping in the mountains of California, never saw another person. I was never bored or lonely. I built my camp, started a garden, collected food from the woods. I was very alone. But not lonely. Plenty of free time, but never bored.
Some people think fishing is boring. Good, leaves more fish for me.

You sound sane to me. To be bored is to be stagnant. You make friends and eventually you and they develop different needs and you remember and enjoy the memory but make new friends of the moment. Life evolves. Look at a pond with no fresh water flowing into it. It becomes green and develops a scum, no one swims there but avoids it. Watch a sunset, the light constantly changes. Bored is watching a rock. There are rocks in Death Valley that do move but most rocks are boring. People who are bored just don't know how to live. Might as well be rocks.

I would say this is just another disingenuous post on your part.

Everyone has felt lonely or bored in their lives - even if just for a short time. Denying it is either lack of awareness or simple dishonesty.

I think you are more right than wrong...his whole post cries for attention, you have to have some degree of loneliness to reach out like that! Seems like a denial of self. It has always amazed me at how unaware people are of themselves, usually diminishes some with age!
