labrador Posted November 17, 2010 Report Share Posted November 17, 2010 I'm not sure what I'm looking for in joining this forum, I just know that I need to finally deal with the issues which have been shaping who I am for the past thirty years. Not dealing with them has resulted in addiction, depression, anxiety, and anger management problems. In turn, they have affected my professional life, recently costing me my career, as well as my personal life, to the point where I am unable to form relationships with others and have withdrawn from even my wife and kids. What has me concerned the most though is the thoughts of suicide that have been entering my mind. So far, thinking about how the death of her father affected my wife has stopped me from making the decision to end my life but I know that's not a strong enough deterrent. I need to want to live for me not for someone else. Is that selfish? So I guess what I'm searching for really is hope and help. Hope that the future will be brighter, and help with dealing with the things that have gotten me to where I am now.A little bit about myself: My name is Darren. 43 years old. Married 15 years. 2 children ages 13 and 23. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
