Some days the depression just envelops me like thick fog ... I woullld like to talk with someone, but I am uncomfortable with "depression" appearing on my medical records. I have so many good things going in my life, I shouldn't feel this way... but my mind just keeps spinning and spinning
But I often hear the old song playing in my mind - "is that all there is".
I am a guy 62 yrs of age, married for 42 years, have a good job, but don't know from week to week whether I'll get RIF'd.
This is complicated by a rather severe case of tinnitus that I can't seem to escape from.
I would really like to find a counselor that I could speak with on a confidential basis.
Karen's right, counsellors keep a veil of confidence. I've utilised services of a few in the past and NEVER had any revelations of such on any employment inquiry, and I write of security lvl checks.
So , if you have the means and desire, do see a counsellor or therapist of your choice. Just getting it off your shoulders and having another 'walk' along side you - shoulder-to-shoulder, can be a relief in itself.
Best to ya...
