                     Okay.. I am normal..well I consider myself to be. I am 34 yrs old, married with a 6 yrs old son. I am in the Army...Infantry at that...Have to stay on active duty for 2-3 yrs after every 2-3 yrs. I get leave for 2 months at most.
                     My problem is that I cannot understand what is going wrong with my life..... its my family..wife to be precise...Actually I got married very 23 yrs of age and I was unable to provide for her emotional needs... didnot stand by her in most crisis... Before you start thinking on the wrong tracks, let me tell you that It is me only who is to blame...
                      I had a very sheltered life till I went to the academy..never had any friends...close ones atleast. Most of them used to shun me because of my goofiness...somewhere down the line, I got the idea that nothing can affect me. From there on I was just passing the time, being a loner and a bookworm.
                      But today, I am standing at a juncture in my life where I consider myself to be failure......In personal life, professional life and life in general....  I am on leave till mid september and then I go back to active duty... No internet...No phones.... a really remote and backward place....Please help me

hi, i'm not sure i can be of any help, but here goes.
You're not saying a lot, but you sound very stressed right now. If you think you're in imediate need of help please seek it now, from your doc, army, er or somewhere.

Is your marraige over(i may be misunderstanding) or can you salvage it. Do you want it to work. If you had such a sheltered life why did you choose the army-i don't mean to sound rude- can you leave it?
Did you suffer some kind of PTSD that everything is falling apart on you now.

It is very important you speak to someone if you are having suicidal thoughts,
Please elaborate if you can,

I am sorry for the edit.
