40 year old married male.  Had a terrible year.. everything from being fired, to having my family commit me to a mental health hospital to just being depressed and no friends.
 
I have always been pretty much of a loner and if on the rare occassion I have been able to find a friend it has always been female.  Although I have NEVER even thought about cheating on my wife, even if an opportunity did arrive, she has real issues with me having female friends.  I have never really been close to anyone but lately find myself totally alone.  I have never been able to bond with other males for one reason or another.
 
I thought I was doing really good with my depression but today I don't feel well at all.

I hope you do none of the above. Like you, I don't have many close friends, sometimes it is hard to make new ones. I've met some people online who share similar interests with me, that helps.

Here are some numbers if you need immediate help:
U.S. Helplines

National Suicide Hotline

1-800-SUICIDE (1-800-784-2433)

This is a combined network of the Amerian Association of Suicidology, the National Hopeline Network, CONTACT USA, and many other organizations. Call are automatically routed to the nearest crisis center to the phone from which the call for help is placed.


NDMDA Depression Hotline | Support Group. 800-826-3632

Suicide Prevention Services Crisis Hotline 800-784-2433

Suicide Prevention Services Depression Hotline 630-482-9696

Please realize you are important. Are you seeing a counselor? It may help for you to talk to your wife about how you are feeling as well.

Take care,

I have tried to talk to my wife, but she truely does not understand.

I did find a couple people on line that really helped. Even if it was just to talk, but they were female and when my wife found out she almost kicked me out on the spot. There was nothing between us other than just talking about general stuff. I had to stop it so now I have no one.

Re the help support phone numbers... Thanks but no thanks. After my last stay, I refuse to go back. Once you have been in a place like that you get labeled and then everyone does avoid you like the plague. If they don't avoid you they certainly look at you differently and I don't know how you ever over come it.

I have sure screwed up my life, and without even trying. I have always tried to work hard, give of myself as much as I can, but I still end up alone. My wife is great, but sometimes you just need someone else to vent to, laugh with or just have them listen.

I'm sorry you feel that way. My mother and her father were both in those places and they went on to have happy, fulfilling lives. Please stick around and continue to engage in the community.

I'm sorry this thread is locked, but we had to do this as discussion of suicide is against forum rules.

I'm glad you have your wife and feel free to start another thread to vent to us.

You matter.
