I'm 37, and am pulling myself out of a 5+ year depression about not feeling good about myself, feeling horrible about not being in love with my wife anymore, and going through a divorce with 3 kids involved.
I have been seeing a counselor with my wife for 2 years, and within the last couple months made it back to having feelings again.
Seven months ago, I started on an exercise program, that I had quit from 6 years ago. I have dropped 53 lbs, and get physically stronger, and clear my head out at the gym at least 6 days a week.
I enjoy my kids and focus on them and the new things they learn everyday, an now am not going to get to do that anymore, at least daily anyway. They are 8, 4, and 2. Girl, boy, girl.
I enjoy reading most of the columns, and finally decided that this may be a place that I can come and talk and journal. I think it may be really good for me to hear about others experiences, and share my own.
