I have struggled with diagnosed anxiety and depression for over 20 years and have likely had it all my life. I do take medication. I joined this forum so I might have a place to vent in the moment if I need to and possibly to support others if I can.
I have been able to hang on through the tough times with the help of a supportive wife but she and my son (stepson) deserved better. Work just zapped all my energy so about all I could do in the evenings and on weekends was mentally and emotionaly prepare for the week ahead.
I just quit a good paying job because the situation was no longer tolerable. I was having suicidal thoughts at least twice a week and the job just wasn't worth it and my wife wanted me to quit. Never told her about the thoughts. Tried therapy AGAIN but there's just too much to unpack in 45 min and I've come to believe, at my age, that no one really gives a ****. Can't blame them, they have their own lives and their own problems.
I have a part time job now that's better. However, I get myself into these he said/she said situations (happened this morning) and have no idea what or why I'm being accused of something I didn't do. First, it makes me angry, then hurt and I just don't see this working out. Was having a good week but now I'll be in a funk all weekend.

Hello Usedup it sounds like you have been going through a lot lately. I’m glad that you have the support of a therapist even though they don’t seem to be much help.
We are glad you found us here. Welcome to the forums! xo, j
