    Hello everyone. I'm not exactly sure where to start in introducing myself. There are times that I get very depressed and stressed out and think of suicide. There are other times that I feel like I am so stupid for feeling this way. In July 2008, I broke my ankle and was off of work for disability for 6 months. I was semi-ok while my finances went to hell, but it got really bad after I went back to work in January of 2009 and didn't have as much left over as I did when I was on 60% pay!

    I have been making progress financially speaking (though I am still behind), but the after effects are at times really bad. My self-isolation has all but wrecked my marriage, and the feelings of helplessness are at times overwhelming.

    The times that I get to feeling better about myself come and go. When I do feel better, I forget that I am having problems, but then my depressed feelings always come back. I am on medication, and I do feel that it has helped me alot, but it's of course not perfect. Most of the time I feel like I am just muddling through life. I am not exactly sure what to do to make my life better.
