I'm worried about myself!!

Hi I'm sorry I just don't know who to turn to. I'm relly worried about myself lately. Over the past couple of months I've been sleeping less worried constaly that I'm alone and no one cares about me even though I have a loving wife and an amazing 4 year old daughter. I started to think that they don't care about me and all my wife wants to do is be away from me I have been increably clingy and worked that she doesn't like me witch I think I'm projecting on to her. I can never sleep so far it's been 4 days with about 4 to 5 hours sleep. I just had a amazing row with my wife over my sudden jealousy of her friends and the fact they I'm alone I stopped seeing my friends as the don'tseem to get me I really don't know what to do just feel like crying all the time sorry for ram belling just don't know who to turn to or what to do anymore think I might be depressed I don't know

  • Hi there and welcome, having read what you have written and not knowing

    You or the back ground makes it difficult to say exactly, but it does sound

    Like you need to see your GP.

    Not sleeping is a symptom of Depression and getting insecure or

    Clingy can happen. We lose our confidence. I have often heard partners

    Feeling distant from their wives or husbands, when really Depression

    Is the problem.

    My simple advice is go to GP and be totally honest and tell them what you

    Have written and they will be able to help you and you can take things

    From there. Maybe Counselling when you begin to feel better.

    So no need to worry you have made the first step. Good luck with Dr.

    And let us know how you are.


  • These can be symptoms of depression and as Hannah says you need to see your doctor about this. Just explain what you have said here and they can look into it, do blood tests to eliminate other causes, possibly prescribe some pills or counselling to help you through.

  • You have to see your GP as you have depression. Medication is only part of the answer but it"s an important part. I know that I get even more depressed when I'm with friends because they seem so normal and happy and Christmas was a nightmare with all the laughing faces and merry Christmas carols. I'm hoping my depression will get a little better now it's all over but so far, no luck. You do need some antidepressants. If like me, you may be unlucky and not get something to suit you, you just have to keep trying as what else can you do? The problem is the time lag as you have to be "weaned" off one lot and the it takes 4-6 weeks for the next to "kick in". However, go to your GP. They are paid to treat you and depression is an illness like any other so there's no,shame in it.

    Best wishes


  • I think the first step you should take is to call your doctor and make an appointment. Make sure to tell your doctor everything you've been experiencing. Then your doctor can order tests and hopefully find out what is going on with you. If you are suffering from depression there are many ways to help you recover and get back on your feet.

    Secondly, I think you should talk to your wife and let her know how you are feeling. I know it can be hard to discuss these types of things. But you yourself said she is loving, so I'm sure she will be completely understanding and want to help you in anyway she can.

    Good luck!
