I’ve suffered from depression and anxiety for over 20 years. Tried numerous combinations of medications, therapists, and have read numerous books on how to cope with my illness. To compound my struggles my wife of over 15 years told me she is no longer in love with me.
My heart is broken. I have a job that does not pay enough to support me being on my own and I know many will think go find a new job and start over. But jobs are the main source of my problems. Every job I’ve had have expatriated my anxiety and depression.
My support system consists of my dad who lives too far away to go see.
I’m trying to hold it together for my children. No child should have to see their parents suffer mentally. I don’t want to ruin there childhood. But I don’t believe in myself any longer or have the strength to turn my life around.
Any positive words that you can send my way would be greatly appreciated. I’m not asking for a miracle answer to my problems, just needed to get this off my chest.
Thank you for listening.
