    When we fall

    Embarrassed, Shame…Alone

    Even with all the good I have been doing I guess we all reach a breaking point. Found out last night after 15 years of marriage and only being separated for 3 years my wife, my everything is already in a relationship.

    So for the first time in my life of living with these mental health conditions I checked into the hospital. They didn’t really do anything but gave me something to sleep. (It didn’t really help). I just can’t block out the images and voices in my head.

    I’m embarrassed for my family and have so much shame that I have fallen this far. But I’m alive so I guess that’s something. I see my theripist and doctor today. What will they think? Needing to take time off work…what will they think?

    3 years and back to the bad brain

    So it’s been nearly 3 years since I’ve posted on here and that’s pretty good I think. Life is much improved in some ways. But I’m slipping again. It feels like the world is against me and idk how to move forward. I was doing really well in a lot of ways and now it feels like I took ten great steps forward just to now fall 100 steps back. #Anxiety #Depression #ItsOKMan #ADHD
