I feel like my life is slowly unravelling, I was diagnosed with depression a couple of years ago due to work pressures and marriage issues I was placed on Citalopram. After a few incidents at work left me feeling unappreciated and very overworked, I switched jobs which improved things for about 4 or 5 months.
Unfortunately my workload increased again substantially, which had a big affect on the depression. Also the new department manager took a very confrontational approach to our entire team which didn't help.
I've attended stress courses, CBT and the work occupational therapist to try improve things, however my wife asked me to move out and wanted a divorce. Absolutely heartbroken I found my own place and had to get furniture (which has ravaged my savings).
I'm currently going through a divorce which is taking its toll on me mentally, my wife wants half my savings even though she was in debt whilst we were married (which I paid off when we separated), she earnt a lot less and never contributed to any savings (we didn't have a joint account).
My work is starting suffer, though I don't seem to care about it anymore. I feel trapped in a job I no longer enjoy. I've lost all interest in things that I used to enjoy (when I try now, I cannot concentrate), I struggle to get up, I have no motivation and I'm now pretty lonely.
I've joined a few dating sites to try meet someone new but I find the women don't respond or are quite rude. Don't get me wrong, I've had quite a few dates from it but either there hasn't been any kind of connection or I just seem to get messed around. As a result my self esteem has plummeted, I feel worse now than before I joined the sites and I'm scared that I'm not going to meet anyone else.
At the moment I just feel completely lost and don't know what to do anymore, is there any advice from people that have been through anything similar? I hate feeling like this and want to get on with life!
