I am sorry you are having a hard time right now.
When you start spiraling down,it is so hard to get back up.
I myself have done ALOT of dumb things when I am down,I wake up regretting it and have learned that sometimes you just have to knock it up as a "down and out" moment and move on.
Is this something you can talk more about?

Wow restless, I know how scary that can be,and I am so sorry that you are going thru this.
I am not the person to give relationship advice as I have been divorced,and struggle with my own relationhip,I think the depression makes it worse.
Woman to Woman though.... now is the time to start planning on taking care of yourself.
When I left my Ex husband, in order to get thru it I had to have a plan,along with a couple of back up plans. It was the only way that I could have mentally survived it all.
If things are really going sour,and there is no chance of working it out. Then you need to be #1 in your life. Taking care of yourself,not letting anyone bring you down. Walking away feeling stronger than you ever have.
I always say that people with depression are very strong people. How else would they be able to walk around with that fake smile,and fake laugh when they are really dying inside?

It is scary...it is something that is going to change you for the rest of your life.
I myself found that I was stronger than I could have ever imagined.
UGH on the mother deal..I still have not forgiven my mom for the abuse she put on me. I don't forgive her for what I still think is "looking the other way" while I was being molested..me being a mom If I would have saw the signs like the ones I was giving out,I would have known if something was not right with my daughter.
You are deeply scarred and I am so sorry. No child should have to go thru that.
I am not sure about what stage you are in as far as the relationship ending,but is there a chance that you two can work it out? is there a chance that you could try marriage counseling?

I am quite young and inexperienced when it comes to relationships so I won't pretend to know what I'm talking about there, but I can fully relate to your fear of being alone. It doesn't sound like you have much of a support network to help you through this, maybe its something you could address if you're sure the marriage won't work out or even if you do decide to seek help for it, as both are sure to be stressful. Don't wait until your confidence is too low to do anything about it, you clearly want things to improve and asking for help here shows that. If you feel like your family won't be there for you, what about friends? If you've lost touch over the course of your marriage, don't be scared to contact old friends for help. You might think that because its been a while they won't want to know but you'd be surprised. Explain what is going on, maybe in a short email and say you really need somebody to talk to and suggest meeting up. Or find out about group therapy or something similar in your area where you can meet people in the same situation who can relate to what you're going through,
Good luck xxx

xtx thanks and you are right i do not have a support network at all i see a psychologist once every eight weeks and thats it .I do not have friends here i have lived here for the past 27yrs and a long time ago i was betrayed by who i thought at the time was a good friend i confided in her and she told someone and eventually it all got back to me so for the past fifteen years i have kept to myself . the psychologist is the only one who actually knows how i`m actually feeling but she isn`t available when i need here thats why i was referred to this site in the first place .I have always put my marriage and my hubby first and believe me there will be no other man in mylife if we do end because it`s the only thing i`m living for . my children treat me like dirt 99% of the time and it only changes when they want something from me . I do not want to be on my own ever

thank you Lyn i have been down for a while and have been back and forth to the drs so many times but i just can`t go there this time .He just doesn`t understand whats happening or how i`m feeling .He is leaving in a few weeks time and i`m pleased but yet i`m not i don`t want to go through everything again it`s just not that simple .I have no family support except for my daughter who moved out late last year we have spent many days just crying and i feel awful as to how this has effected her .I didn`t know how much until one day i was so bad i went off at a meeting we were at . I have never ever spoken to anyone like i did that day and needless to say i have never gone back .It just gives me another excuse to stay home away from everyone . But my daughter has her own problems to deal with she doesn`t need mine and for a daughter to know what her mother is feeling isn`t good at all. I have a few on line friends i usually talk to but they too have a lot of things going on in their lives and don`t need my crap. All i want is for it all to go away i`ve had enough

HUN your daughter loves you and above anyone else she knows you the most right
I am sure she will continue to support and help you and you her
****NEVER give up dont let this Dang disorder win
I KNOW you are stronger than that I can tell by what you have gotten thru already in your life
I am 53 and have a teen daughter that has seen the " good bad and Ugly" yet she still is here for me
I like you try not to burden her with my illnesses and anxiety/ panic attacks but sometimes I need to talk with her she KNOWS her mom....
If you need to talk my email addy is under name so is all my other info
Shy is great with her support and empathy Like I said I am glad you have her I am here for you as well ......so are many others
Keep reaching out
DONT let this win
Keep the FAITH
Stay STRONG

God Bless

Hi restless, I am so very sorry for all the pain and uncertianty your going through in your life right now.  I was wondering if perhaps your psychologist could refer you to a counselor?  This would be someone that you could speak to and try to work some of these feelings out one on one and help give you some problem solving techniques to use with your panic attacks and hopefully help with your marriage issues.  You could see them inaddition to your psychologist/psychiatrist.

I feel I am the last one to give any kind of relationship advice at all as my own marriage feel apart 3 years ago after being with him for 12 yrs and 5 yrs married.  It was the hardest thing to go through in the world and I did feel like I would never try again or be with anyone else ever again and basically my whole life was over.  But you have to know that you are an independant person regardless of your relationship and you have to take care of yourself first and foremost before you can make a relationship work.  For those of us who have abusive pasts we tend to make ourselves so small, our worlds small as in isolation so that we cant get hurt again.  What ends up happening is that we have made this protective shield around ourselves so solid that we sufficate ourselves and sometimes others.  Thus the depression, panic attacks and post traumatic stress.  I am not saying this is what is going on with you...but I have done this with myself and it is a hard pattern to break.

Please do look into the counseling idea, I think you will find it helpful for you in the long run.  Maybe if the weather is nice where you are take a walk and try to clear your head alittle.  Sunshine is a good boost for the emotial system.  And always know we are here for you.

Hugs

My mother had a lot of problems as I was growing up that she tried to keep from me, but I just ended up worried, frustrated and confused. Now I'm 19 and living away from home, and I know that my mum still has many problems but I am not there to see. Rather than this being a load of my mind, it is a source of constant worry, as I don't know how she's doing and she won't tell me when I speak to her. She feels like she is burdening me, but there have been times when she has been honest with me and while its been hard to go through these times with her, I much prefer them to the times when she keeps everything bottled up. I too have my own problems but she's my mother, I love her and I want to know that she's ok, just as she does with me. I am happy to make certain sacrifices for her if it means that I can help in some way because the end (her being ok) makes all the stress worthwhile. The fact that your daughter has supported you so far already means that she feels the same about you. Let her help.
As for your online friends, sure they may have stuff in their lives but so do we and we're still more than happy to help you in any way we can! My point is that you won't meet a person alive who doesn't have their own problems, but it doesn't mean they don't want to hear about yours. Some of those problems may even be or have been the same as yours at some point, so you could find that they have valuable advice to help you.
Please try everything, no matter how futile or insignificant it might seem, because help and advice can be found in the most unexpected places as well as the most obvious.

Thankyou everyone for all your help just being able to talk to some one else is a great i have even been in contact with someone else from this forum and we talked at lengths last night .Im sorry i didn`t get back sooner but i have been unable to get in because of the problems i`ve been having here .I look after little children and they keep me from thinking of a lot of my problems and i use to garden a lot but now i have skin cancer i`m too frightened to even go out in the day time am still waiting for surgery to have it removed and grafting done .As for my daughter i know she is having a lot of problems herself dealing with her work as an emergency rescue person and i have tried to be there for her and get help for her it`s available to her through the emergency team she works for but as for extra help for me it`s a different story because of where we live it`s just not available and thats why i`m having so much trouble dealing with a lot of issues .The psycharist i saw once before her service was cut to our town had increased my anti depressant three times the usual dosage but the it has now efected my personal relationship with my husband to the extent i feel nothing towards our personal life and i think that it`s the medication that has done this .I`m sure he has picked up on this also which i can`t explain to him that i don`t want him to even touch me (if you can understand what i`m saying ) i want him to hold me to be close to him but i don`t want anything more .I know this sounds really selfish and it hurts me so much not to be able to explain this to him but how can i this will surely end what chances of keeping our marriage going .And i know that i can`t stop taking the medication because that would really end everything.
Then this morning i read the texts my son had sent my husband it really broke my heart to hear him talk to his dad like he did he and all the kids are not really close to their dad it`s always been me who has dealt with and been there for them when needed as hubby was always working but this was so harsh for him to say this .My son won`t even talk to me but i just can`t give up on him i`m his mum and i still love him so much.
I just have so many issues that it`s becoming so hard to deal with everything and eventhough everyone has said they are here for me it`s still very hard to deal with .But thankyou all for being so caring and listening to me ,just getting the thoughts out help me for a while.
