I’ve been diagnosed with sex addiction and my SO recently found out about all the affairs I’ve had during all of the years of our marriage. Our little kids have been affected by this as well. (Cont.)

See a therapist and find ways to manage your addiction. No one on here can tell you if too much damage has been done to your marriage, but there is no reason you can’t lead a happy, healthy, and fulfilling life moving forward. Good luck OP

I’m doing everything I possibly can to save the marriage but the damage done to my family is too horrific to forgive and accept. I’m beyond desperate. Is there any hope that my SO will ever forgive me?

Additional Posts in Depression/Anxiety Talk

I think I’m having a mental breakdown. I really have tried hard to deal with my depression (therapist/meds/exercise/etc.) but I’m at the end of my rope. I’ve only been at my job for a little under a year, so I don’t feel like I can tell anyone or try and take leave.

I’m literally just crying at my computer for several hours a day and responding to emails without generating any work product. This isn’t who I am.

Has anyone dealt with this before? What did you do?

Has anyone dealt with bad agoraphobia and depersonalization? A few weeks ago, I had a massive panic attack in public after a night of heavy drinking + a nitro cold brew. I was extremely scared I was going to pass out and not be able to walk home (I live in NYC). Since then, every time I go outside, I get severe anxiety. The first few days it was recurrent panic attacks but now it’s just anxiety. Starting to feel like I’m losing my mind. I’ve cut out caffeine and alcohol. Any success stories?

I started a job 4 months ago in industry. I was struggling a lot with imposter syndrome in the beginning. I felt inadequate and so anxious all the time. I’ve been going to therapy and started Zoloft. The Zoloft made me feel pretty good about my job for a few weeks. I felt capable and like I deserve to belong. I don’t know what happened but I’m back to feeling like shit about my job again. After any meeting I’m in where I need to speak, I’m left feeling pretty awful and stupid. What should I do?

Appreciate any EMDR experiences.
