down but not out yet

Feeling really empty, almost dead inside. sick of the pressure and stress to
succeed financially, have all the tools and systems but can't seem to implement in correct and timely fashion. Have serious pressure from my wife
to get a regular job but feel too old and with little trac record to succeed.
each day gets worse and i can't find a big enough hole to hide in so i spend my days faking it. I workout almost everyday, take vitamine supplements,
eat salads, fish, meat, grains and fruit, listen to motivational tapes but feel
like I am losing the battle to reach my goals or even to provide for my family.
Looking forward to getting off this planet. disgusted with my constant failure.

Re: down but not out yet

You really need to make an appointment with your doctor for depression. It sounds like you could use some help and taking some medication may be what you are needing at this time so you don't have to "fake it". Right now you need to take care of yourself so you can take care of your family. If you are already taking meds then you need to let your doctor know that they aren't working for you. Seriously, don't wait any longer.

Re: down but not out yet

Hey there.. have definitely had similar feelings.. They go away.. You probably know that already.. And then come back again. You probably know that too. But don't give up hope.. there are always more options, even if they seem inconceivable to you at this time! In the mean time, you have us!!
Let us know if you see a therapist and how that goes.
