Ever since 2022 when AI became a thing, I've lost all hope and purpose in life. I just don't see a point in living anymore now that AI is going to replace humans in all fields.
There is no point learning skills or building a career, because AI will perform all tasks (whether creative or professional) in future. There is no point going on the internet because now "Dead Internet Theory" is unironically true and it will only get worse and worse as the years go on, until 99.999% of shit you see online is AI generated. There's no point seeking out meaningful human relationships because AI is going to transform social spaces just like smartphones did, eventually people will just stop going outside or talking to anybody and will just talk to AI chatbots instead. There is quite literally no point doing ANYTHING anymore because of AI.
Every waking moment of my life I am filled with sickness and anxiety because of AI. I've started to lose the ability to discern between reality and fiction, because generative AI now means that any photo, video or audio recording I see could be an AI generated fake. I can't look forward to the future anymore because I just see the whole world being ruined and becoming unrecognisable because of the consequences of AI. I can't even enjoy anything in life anymore, even when I'm happy and listening to a beautiful piece of music or enjoying a fun video game, I just think "things like this won't be possible in the future anymore because of AI".
It's not that I'm actively suicidal. I just feel this grey, bland feeling, like I just don't want to exist anymore. I pray every day that I could go back in time years or even decades into the past so that I don't have to live in this fake and soulless post-AI world.
I don't expect you people to understand me and you will probably laugh at me, but I need help learning to cope. I can't fricking do anything anymore because of how these thoughts of doom about AI consume my mind 24/7/365 ever since late 2022.
