Ex-psychologist. I am new, here.

I am old enough. I was a psychologist for about seven years and changed careers during a very messy divorce. I actually broke down in a session and once that happened, I knew that I needed to find a new practice.

Its been ten years and I haven't decided to go back. Lately, it is a consideration.

I am madly in love with a man who I do not know what to do with. He is mentally damaged beyond anything I've ever seen but I love him enough to endure his off moments. Yesterday, I made my first post, in which I explained that situation. If you'd like to look, I'd greatly appreciate it.

I am old. I have little faith in the internet as a source of psychological help but I'm glad to see that so many of you seem to find that it works. Because I am not a part of the internet generation, I am not likely to be very helpful on this forum but I am told that an introduction post is the only polite thing to do, when on internet forums. I am only trying to practice proper etiquette.

:welcome: SP, so what if you are old - I only mention it because you did TWICE! I hope you find it friendly here

Peace

Thank you, Keepsafe. It really isn't something I mention often but the internet certainly makes me feel that way at times. I've used it for work and have only just been introduced to the social side of it.

I honestly wasn't aware of how many people use it to talk to complete strangers.

I am primarily here to look for second, third and hopefully fifth opinions regarding this situation:

I am quite desperate.
