    Today is NOT a good day. I had to really struggle to force myself to post. While I have considered suicide, more often than not I find myself hoping to die. Right now is one of those times.....

    Hi @RetroJoe I just read on another thread you are on sertraline and pain meds. If you don't feel like they are working I would advise you talk to your doctor about this. I am sorry you are feeling so low but glad that you posted here and let us know how you are. You matter :)

    Talking to your doctor about your current meds is actually a very good idea.

    Thanks for the reply, brknsilence. I appreciate the offer to discuss but I would have to write a book at this point. I just can't get anyone to listen to me. I'm the guy that takes care of things for others all of the time. Everyone looks to me constantly to fix problems. I feel like a utility. I'm unemployed due to the pacemaker/defibrillator that I had put in last month. We have one vehicle and it broke down today and I don't have the money to have it fixed. I have a 22yr old and 18yr old son that both have jobs and need the car to get back and forth to work. I didn't raise them so they weren't brought up the way they should've been. So yet again, the pressure is on me to take care of the car problem and I HAVE NO MONEY!! This paragraph is only a sliver of the is only a sliver of the issues I've had over the last 5yrs. I sent a message to my doc tell her to cancel all of my heart appointments because I didn't want to bother with all of it any more. I really just want to disappear.

    I am also the "handy man" around here.
    Because I am disabled & draw bennies everybody thinks I have all the time in the world.
    Little did they know I have those days that I just shut down & get angry that they don't understand. Turns out it was myself that wasn't communicating my needs.
    They all now understand.
    Most my friends are long haul truckers. I do all their repairs on their homes & vehicles. I am also the "handy man" for the single moms.
    I never in my life have charged a friend for my services. The single moms never have money to pay for the repairs they need but I always found a way to make these "parts" or supplies they need magically appear as it hurt my wallet.
    My anger at myself for paying for supplies for those that couldn't pay had a simple solution. Those that can pay such as my trucker friends, puts $25 into a pot to help pay for those that can't pay. A simple insurance plan.
    This plan helps me with gasoline and keeps my budget intact. I also no longer get angry when the phone rings from somebody needing my help.
    I once thought my skills were a curse. Its now a blessing that keeps me occupied & feeling I am needed.
    I hope this was at least some what helpful.
