Depression

Hello, i have an ongoing mental issue that is tearing my life apart. I was abused as a young boy and it seems now that the experience is really starting to affect my life. I used to be able to block it out, but now i am drinking excessively and acting like a complete idiot more often than not. I have a good life, a great job, a beautiful wife, fabulous children and step children, beautiful grandchildren​ and not much to worry about. But i cant seem to get myself under control. I will lose everything if this carries on and i dont know where to turn.

  • So sorry to hear this. I have also struggled with depression. The meds they gave me really did a number on me and I heard voices. The medication caused me to have panic attacks so of course I do not take it any longer. I do not have medical insurance so I had to quit my dr visits and I have good and bad days but I do alot of self talking and it seems to have helped.i am also dealing with a situation that is breaking my heart. Two people that I love dearly are struggling with a mental disorder the husband is experiencing and it has been very scary, exhausting, and totally shocking to witness. It has changed everybody that loves him in a sad and unexplainable way. PLease I ask you to kindly say a prayer for him and the family. Thank you for sharing your story. Sending you love and happiness from Utah.
