I originally posted this on the bottom of Atedogs thread but then figured out how to start a new thread.
At the suggestion of someone who loves me very much, I am joining this site to try and find some other resources ( besides counseling ) and coping strategies for managing and eventualy defeating my demons. First of all I'm 49yo, married for 24 years and the proud father of two amazing children. I realize that atedogs thread is in play and I apologize for inserting this here but I'm very new to the world of message boarding. I have recently quit drinking. Which was my crutch to deal with my fears and demons. I'm currently taking wellbutrin and seeing a counselor. The problem for me is that I write my own stories of doom and gloom. When it's at it's worst I can even find evidence to prove that my fears are real. The lucid me knows better, but the manic me doesn't listen. I'm tired of this way of life and really want to move forward. Thanks for listening . P.S. IFIXDIT refers to my buisness, not my head
