Wake up call.
My wife just informed me that my 8yr old daughter didn't want to hang out with me while I made errands to the hardware store and others for a few jobs i'm doing around the house. said my daughter picked up on my annoyance and irritability today. figured I was the angry daddy today and didn't want to come with me for fear of being yelled at or me getting upset with her. i'm struggling here... this is not who I want to be. i'm looking for help to best treat, medicate, cope, and handle the fact i'm an emotional bully to my family. i'm so easily irritated and annoyed, I feel angry most all the time and i'm in denial about it. I read an article earlier tonight on depression and found the comment section had provided more help than the article. I don't know where to begin, any assistance or direction would be helpful. I believe I suffer from PTSD but don't want to admit it. served 9 years with 4 tours of combat as a scout in the army. i'm proud of my service and the type of man I became in combat. it was the most hazardous, adventurous, and scary time in my life and it ended in 2011. nothing else will compare. ,

Please seek help: i am 57 now, my daughter does not want to talk to me, she havent call for birthday, Christmas and dont respond to my texts. I feel so alone and ii cannot go back and change things. You still have a chance. Be mindful of your sugar levels: we get crankier if you havent eat. It may not your case but try having a sweet and check how your mood changes. I was a horrible mother and i deserve this, but it hurts so much. It is Christmas day and i am so sad, depressed and suicidal. I am not going to hurt myself but i need to express it ti get it out. Good luck to you and tour family, hope you can heal yourself for the sake of your wife and kid.

I am inspired by all the beautiful wise things people are writing on this site. Thank you all for sharing your stories. I do want to respectfully disagree with just one small thing that BlessHope wrote. I think he was wise to say that when our blood sugar gets low, we can get cranky or depressed. I'm that way. But from everything I've learned, having a sweet (something made with sugar like candy, cookie, cake, donut, etc.) will give you a short-term lift because it's a simple carbohydrate that gets digested quickly, but it will make things worse overall. It causes a temporary spike in your blood sugar, (leads to cheerful feeling) but then your blood sugar will fall even lower (leading to more depression). I suggest something with natural sugar, like a fruit, for the quicker pickup, eaten along with protein (meat, fish, cheese, eggs, beans & grains, nuts, seeds, tempeh) to give a slow release of carbs. Sorry for being a nit-picker, but see if that helps more than a sweet.
