I am experiencing extreme stress caused by my husband's illness and my inability to handle every problem even simple problems. we do not have a real marriage and he only adds more stress to my life. I feel all alone and I am embarrassed to reach out to anyone. I don't want to live anymore.

      I am going thru the same thing with a husband who is sick and not a very supportive family. I often like I don't want to live, and all the joy has gone out of my life. When it gets too bad, I do online quizzes and games to take my mind off my problems. I know that won't work for everyone, but it works for me. I like to swim to relieve stress, but lately I have no desire to even do that. I just stay home, and only go out when I have to.

      Hello. You’re not alone even though it may feel like it, I’m glad you reached out! A lot of people seem to really enjoy and find help with an app called “The Mighty” if you’d like to check that out and see how it can help. When I can’t afford to pay for a therapist, I used that app.

      I definitely understand how you’re feeling. Please don’t feel embarrassed to reach out! I know it’s easier said than done, but please know that there are people like me and others on here that you can connect with even with just a chat. You matter.❤️

      If you can reach out to a therapist or your doctor, that's one place to start. If you have family that you can talk to and have a supportive relationship with, you could try talking to them. If there is anyone in your life who you would want to call if you were sick and needed someone else there, you can try talking to them?

      Where or to whom can I go. I feel trapped in this marriage and I have nowhere to turn.

      I relate so strongly to what you’re going through. Being here, speaking out on this app, even just reading the comments, it let’s us all know we aren’t alone. Please don’t give up. The hopelessness feels so strong sometimes, I know. But reach out.

      Oh man!! I'm so sorry to hear you are going through this and feel this way. Please don't feel embarrassed to reach out. It takes courage to open up about your feelings and it is beneficial to release them and get them out in the open even if it's just writing them down or acknowledging it to yourself. Know you are not alone in feeling discouraged to reach out or feeling overwhelmed. I have definitely been there. Here if there is anything I can do to help. ♥️
