I have been to my Doctor. Depression is nothing new to me, so I've been on anti-depressants for several years. Just kind of tired of therapy. Would rather get out and make some new friends instead of paying someone to listen to me.
My house is a mess, work is a bit more stressful than usual, and then my Ex and my oldest D can't stand each other.
Go see a doctor anyways and get a full workup done. Posted via Mobile Device
Man, I'm there with ya. Between you and Shoo and shoeguy, I swear we all live parallel lives. I get what you are saying about being worn out. Emotionally, physically, and financially, I'm sure we have all pretty much gone down a bit of an unhealthy path. I've tried so hard to please everyone and be super-dad on top of it that I am just exhausted.
I understand you NG. I have been divorced since Sep 2010 and I still go though ups and downs. The emptiness sits like a huge gapping hole in my heart. Work is stressful, I have to take care of a child that is slightly autistic, housework etc. I wake up every single night and can't sleep for few hours then fall asleep when I have to go to work.
He pays child support but does not participate in day to day upbringing. He thinks seeing the child 3x a week for 20 min on Skype is good enough and maybe two weekends a month(picks up the child late Friday pm and returns him to me by mid day Sunday). I am the one that has to push for all medical tests, researching how I can help my child. I have not received one link from him to say: Hey what do you think about this or that regarding our child's health.
I actually had my Vitamin D levels checked. They were low. Vit D level also contributes to depression so have it checked out. I am well over due for some sort of counselling but I just can't seem to find enough hours in the day to do everything. I read this forum and it helps most days.
Today is exactly 2 years since he officially asked for divorce. And Friday Apr 20 would have been our 7 year wedding anniversary. I hope I suvive this week.
Keep us posted NG how you are doing. That's why we are here.
