I am, seemingly, incapable of behaving in a way that is of any benefit to other people or myself - what, if any, problem do I have?

Essentially, even when faced

Essentially, even when faced with the Thundering Train of The Inevitable looming barely a few yards away, I am unable to react or take any evasive actions.

It's a problem that's been around me since 1992 when, having been married for four weeks, the company I'd worked for in a very effective way decided to offer an opportunity to resign. That I accepted this at the time in near-silence was clearly not quite the best thing to do.

Now, over 20 years later, I'm divorced without children and in a relationship that is suffering the same things that my marriage suffered.

'Feckless' is a word that may apply but it doesn't sit well with me as I do try to be as useful and capable as I can be.

I would like another person's opinion - even / especially a person many thousands of miles away from England.
