I'd broken away from my depression for a number of years ... but I guess it was bound to catch up to me sooner or later. Renewed job and financial stress. Constant pressure from my Ex. Unmet hopes and dreams continue to stack up. Loss of hope for a better future. I'm pretty beaten down at this point....it's time to go back to counseling I guess... ...any other ideas besides that?

Thought about going back on meds....but the side effects are too great...and if my Ex found out, she'd haul me in to Court to try to take custody of my son. (Yeah, she's like that...)

Continuing to tough it out for now...I know I'm losing the battle...but not ready to toss in the towel yet.

To make matters worse, I think my employer will be announcing pay cuts next week.

Son is 16.

No, Ex is not on my medical insurance.

But I'm ever amazed what she finds out...and how she twists it.

As last eval,

Oh my goodness....sigh.

Well, I sapose if you wanted to try a low dose anti depressant, you just could not let your son see it, as he would tell her.

Sorry your are going through this.....hug.
