Hello everyone, I was recommended this site by my counselor, so I've decided to give it a try. I'm a 41/m, am married with a 20 month old at home (my first), and I work out out of town half the week. I started this new job/schedule about a year ago and I've had a hard time with it, mainly from being away from my son. I usually cry when I leave, and it never seems to be getting easier. I have been on Cipralex for awhile, and just recently started Seroquel over the last few months to help me sleep, because I wasn't getting much while at work. My job is out at a mine site, so it's pretty isolated. There are two people: the one that works at a mine, and the other that comes home. I do the job for the money, but I don't really like it all that much. I hope to get a local job again once my son is old enough for JK, but right now this is what I do. I've made a few "friends", but the culture is not exactly one that promotes talking about your feelings. I am heading back this afternoon and am already feeling down. Anyways, just wanted to introduce myself and see where this takes me.
