I am a 51 year old that has destroyed two marriages due to my addiction to substances. I have been severely depressed since June of this year. I was separated from my current wife when she said she could just not take it any more. She acts like she is being coached by someone, as it just does not sound like her. Her emotional check-out towards me was a complete surprise.
I have had health issues with my heart, thyroid and substances. 4 hospital stays in 6 months. And after I was the caregiver, to my wife, during the 4 months that she was suffering, due to an undiagnosed illness.
Stress is at an all time high. No money, job at risk, no support from family and friends, I am not getting any better. I have started seeing a Therapist. My wife said that she is not interested in working with my Therapist and I am unaware of her working with any professionals, currently. She has in the past. During her own divorce.
She insisted on going straight to divorce, not separation and try to work on our marriage. I have to decided to fight for the marriage as I love her as no one else. She is my reason to be. Worth the work.
Any thoughts or suggestions on how to fight all of my issues and try to get better would be welcome.
BTW, I am 78 days clean and on Prozac 40mg. I actually contacted the help line last night due to I was as low as I can get. Sigh.
