Hopelessness In Life, Please Help

I'm severely depressed in life and at work to the point where I've had to get accommodations to work from home. I'm on Wellbutrin for anxiety and depression, I've been on about 10 other medications for anxiety throughout my life since age 8. I'm a 36 year old male, married for nearly 13 years, my wife says she can't be the person to talk to about the things I'm suffering from, and I don't have any dependable friends to talk to. I don't really have any friends for that matter aside from my wife. My wife is all I have, because I come from a very abusive and neglecting family, so I don't speak with my biological family. I am trying extremely hard every day when I wake up to just be a professional, but kind and pleasant person, but my co-workers barely speak to me, and laugh and carry on all the time with each other. My job as of recently is being threatened by my superiors telling me I could lose my job. They are people who do not care to deal with people who have mental disabilities. I really need someone to talk to, because my situation is not getting any better, and I'm feeling hopeless about life. I have struggled so much with holding down a job ever since college, and it's destroying my career. The only reason I'm not homeless is because of my wife. I also struggle with my spiritual relationship with God, and I feel like it's slipping. Someone please help me.

Hello and welcome to EHF !

I went through your query and i understand your concern.I would like you to hold on and have some stressors relieved from your life. Take help of psychotherapist. Group sessions should be signed up. Find others like you. Think positive. Stay compliant to the meds.

Take care
