My name is Brandon. I am 43 years old. I am divorced and have custody of my two kids. I live with my girlfriend and her 5 year old son.

My anxiety, fear, stress, irritability, and anger are ruining my relationship and my life. Oh yes, depression. Sometimes real deep. So bad it shuts my mind down and I get real sleepy and can't cope with life. I'm also anti social. I have a few friends but now that I'm older and have work and kids we've all grown apart. I have a hard time making new friends and getting close to people. It's always been like that.

I've always had terrible anxiety, but I'm coming to the realization that there's other qualities that seem to be associated with it. Namely irritability and anger. I don't go around fighting people or hitting women. It's more like yelling loudly in a fight with my girlfriend for example. Or yelling at the kids. Or name calling . I hate it but it happens.

I've tried zoloft for a short period while I was with my gambling lying shoplifting stealing cheating wife. It seemed like it kind of worked with the anxiety. I could feel it under the surface but the zoloft was there like a wall holding it back if that makes sense. And.......it killed my ability to finish the job during sex.

I guess to summorize. I need help with anger, bad anxiety and depression. I assume I need meds and therapy. Help!

Meds and therapy sound like a great place to start with this. They have helped many people in your position and can help you too. I would make an appointment to discuss with your primary care provider to get the ball rolling. The sooner the better so you can begin to experience the changes that you seek. xo, j
