Default I need help

I need help and I don't know where to go. Posting this on a bowhunting forum, when I mostly hunt with a rifle should tell you. I am hurting bad. I'm tired of waking up on the floor, I'm tired of being a failure as husband, a parent, and a grown man. I cannot go one more day like this. I can't ask for help because of fear of losing everything. How do I walk away from my job, the embarrassment of being weak? I lost my only chance of raising a child, twice. I need help and I have no idea where to go.

Are you active in any church? If not find one and speak with the preacher, he will listen and counsel.

Thereís also no shame in seeking medical help either.

Yes sir this.Itís interesting you should ask on this day.Itís Nisan14 according to the Jewish calendar the exact day that Jesus Christ was impaled for our sins and gave us free access to our Heavenly Father and gave us a secure hope of everlasting life in a resurrection.I hate to hear your having such a bad time we all have our weaknesses that satan exacerbates and torments us with. You will have a lot of prayers coming from good folks on here Iím positive they will get you help from the Holy Spirit.Please read Psalms34:17-19 pray to your Heavenly Father Jehovah and respectful pray for access in Jesus name and be confident he will hear you.Then work in harmony with your prayers.If I could I would come over and do my best to help but right now Iíll pray in your behalf and plead that you get the assistance you need.

Find yourself a professional counselor or lcsw asap. Everyone is having problems these days so many of them are booked. Call around. Even if you are not into church, find one and go talk with them. Most churches have trained people and or resources for you. I have dealt with issues most of my life so I know sometimes you need professional help and maybe medication at least long enough to get over the hump. Don't worry about stigma because everyone has their own problems. If you had a broke leg would you be embarrassed to get help? If you had high cholesterol would you be embarrassed to take a pill? As far as work you can file for family medical leave act FMLA. You won't get paid, but they can't fire you for the time you need off. I also agree with the previous posts, find yourself a bible believing church and get involved. PM me if you need someone to talk to.

Matthew 7;7 says "Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you". Friend you have asked, continue seeking and knocking because God has something the world will never be able to give you. There are many on here God has changed in miraculous ways. Let us be used by God to help you. I promise you will never regret it. God Bless

Sir, I donít know you but I can offer one piece of advice... work thru your Employee Assistance Program thru your healthcare insurance (assuming you have that since you said you were worried about your job). They are bound by confidentiality rules. Start there and seek the treatment you think you need.

Praying for your health and safety.

It takes courage to ask for help. Everyone has or has had some type of issues in life. Your greatest risk of losing everything is not getting help. I will pray for you right now and continue praying for you!! Fight for it and you will get through this soon.

C W,
Your stronger than you think. It takes a very strong individual to admit he needs help. Ironically, you’ll find in the Bible that God always chooses the weak or insignificant and uses them to accomplish mighty deeds for Him. Your strongest when your on your knees in prayer. Stop. Breathe. And pray first. I like others are here for you brother. P m me, I’ll make time for you bro. Don’t give up. If you’ve hit bottom then the only way you can go is up.

Check your PM’s brother ... I’m here if you need anything. Lots of resources for professional help if you’re willing to get humble and admit you’re powerless over people, places, and things. It all starts with asking for help, changing your lifestyle, and having FAITH... call me brother, we’re all here to support you


The Footprints Prayer

One night I had a dream…

I dreamed I was walking along the beach with the Lord, and
Across the sky flashed scenes from my life. For each scene I noticed two sets of footprints in the sand; One belonged to me, and the other to the Lord. When the last scene of my life flashed before us, I looked back at the footprints in the sand. I noticed that many times along the path of my life, There was only one set of footprints.

I also noticed that it happened at the very lowest
and saddest times in my life
This really bothered me, and I questioned the Lord about it.
“Lord, you said that once I decided to follow you,
You would walk with me all the way;
But I have noticed that during the
most troublesome times in my life,
There is only one set of footprints.
I don’t understand why in times when I
needed you the most, you should leave me.

The Lord replied, “My precious, precious
child. I love you, and I would never,
never leave you during your times of
trial and suffering.
When you saw only one set of footprints,
It was then that I carried you.

Turning things around for yourself is really not a difficult thing to do. Find God, hold yourself accountable for your actions, look forward for positive experiences only looking in rear view as a reminder that past is where you never want to be again. Only took me 35 years to figure it out. If there is any dependence on alcohol or drugs you will have to kick that too, it won’t be easy. Alcohol was my vice, comforting me, consoling me, and always accessible. Once I hit bottom and nearly lost it all something snapped in me. A conscious decision was made to change not what I had done but what I would do from that day on. Unfortunately, I lost quite a bit. A marriage, contact with my daughter, my home...and the list goes on. But, from the day I made that decision to change my life I have been blessed daily and certainly more than I think I deserve. No more struggle, love, happiness, career, finances...sure there are challenges but I am more capable of handling those with a clear mind. You have it in you to change, I’m sure of it. Pray for strength, make daily goals, and be kind. Most everything else will fall into place for you. Good luck man

Please, talk a doctor, you may be in a state of depression. I have been having bad issues with anxiety lately, and on the verge of depression my self. I have talked to a couple doctors and they are trying to help me through it. But please man don’t be afraid of asking for help, I know it’s embarrassing, and you don’t feel like a man, you feel weak. But many many of us have had to deal with it, and many more will in the future. Seriously the sooner you get help the better, it takes a long time to get over it weather it’s depression, drugs or alcohol. Please please don’t give up ! Pm me, and I will give you my phone number if you need someone to talk to. I know it seems like there is no way out, I am there also. But man you got to fight to get over it.

Prayer going up brother

Philippians 4:6-7
6 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; 7 and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

I have clung to this scripture through some very dark nights.

The fact that you're trying to make things better for yourself shows you're not weak. Walking away from your job to get your life the way you want it to be is worth it if that's the only way to do it. If you have a goal in mind you do what you have to do to achieve it.

You're worried about what people think. You should be worried about what you think and what the people you hold dearest to you think. Screw what the folks you work with think about ya. You have kids, make them proud instead. If that means times have to get tough for you to be the man you want to be then so be it. The longer you wait the worse off it's gonna be. Make yourself proud above all else. There ain't no waiting on it. Just buckle down and get it done. If you're dealing with addiction get to rehab and get your life on track. If work is stressing you out, quit. If people in your life are dragging you down get away from them. Ain't nobody gonna look down on you for nothin except you.

My dad wasn't there for me when I was a kid. He was an alcoholic. But he's sober now,has a good job and we have a good relationship now. Ain't nobody worried about the past. Make things happen so that the future is better.

Sounds like you're, your own worst enemy bud. You're a lot harder on yourself than anyone is gonna be. That's why you're gonna change your life.

Prayed for you this morning OP. Humbling yourself and admitting your faults, weakness, and problems is one of the hardest things to do for a man. We tend to be prideful creatures most of the time. It sounds like you are in a dark place right now. I have been there. When I was a young man I battled addiction, depression... you name it. I lost a marriage with a 2 year old daughter at the time. Rock bottom is where I died to my pride and fell to my knees and cried out to God to do for me what I could not do myself. I was sick of what my life had become and hated who I was. God radically changed my life and I trusted Him fully with it. He changed me in ways I can't even explain and the old Josh has been dead for a very long time. He brought my now wife into my life 17 years ago and has blessed me with two more children and an awesome relationship with my 21 year old daughter that I felt like I had let down when she was two. Through that dark period of my life, God worked out an amazing plan that I never could have foreseen. He loves you and desired a relationship with you. He wants to hear all about what's pressing down on you right now and can take all that weight off of you if you will Humble yourself and place your hope and trust in Him. I have lived it and I'm proof of Jesus's power to change a life. Sometimes certain people, places, jobs, etc can be toxic to us in our lives and can be destructive. If God leads you away from some of those people, places, things...just listen. He will never lead you wrong, even if it doesn't make sense at the time. His plan is always perfect, just surrender step into the middle of it.

I've been where Josh was as well, in my case it was alcohol, admitting you are powerless over it is not an easy task, but when you figure that out it's not weakness, it's empowering beyond belief. I lost a marriage, but that's what it took for me to turn my life around, to this day I credit my first wife with saving my life by having the guts to dump me after 18 years of putting up with it. AA worked for me 26 years ago, if your situation is similar to mine it's certainly an option along with the other suggestions offered here.

How do I walk away from my job, the embarrassment of being weak? I lost my only chance of raising a child, twice. I need help and I have no idea where to go.


Asking for help is the direct opposite of being weak. Whatís weak is ignoring it. Thatís easy. You canít do it by yourself or you already would have. I have been in your shoes brother. So I am not giving my thoughts without living it. I spent a lot of years, wasted years, drinking, hungover, or asleep. No way to live.
You donít have to do this by yourself. Itís awesome on the other side. Pm me if you need anything.
