  1. I have felt similarly. I spoke with a therapist at one point and I could tell from the look in his eye that he was.listening on the surface but that was it. Gave me a "by the book" answer that I could have gotten from my college psychology textbook. I am not saying that he didn't care but no way was he ever going to understand how I actually felt by sitting with me for a few months.
  2. My relationship with my wife is ok. Not great, not horrible. I think the poor relationship problems are more of a result of my depression. I always need to stay busy so I don't fall in the mental hole and she is fine just relaxing so there is some tension and friction.. But I think my problems are much deeper than the marriage, I realize now that I had similar feelings long ago even though I didn't think my thoughts\issues/depression was not "normal" .
  3. Just found this forum so figured I would jump right in....I am in my late 40's, have a pretty, loving wife and 2 teenage sons. Nice house in a small town. No noticeable problems. But I am miserable, and always feel so alone. Tried meds but quit because it didnt help at all. Inside I am a complete mess, no desire to keep going but I won't **** myself because I don't want my kids to be without a father. We have acquaintances but no real close friends and I always jealous when I see groups of friends having fun. We have (or used to) have parties on occasion but usually it is just the 4 of us doing whatever we do. I just don't understand how I am not happy, actually I breakdown almost daily with profound sadness. Reading through all your stories and situations, why must we all live with such terrible pain ? I want to be able to enjoy life, not just try to get by.
