I'm new here but I have a major issue that I have been struggling to cope with: my pain and efforts to cope with it hurts those around me. They, mainly my wife and family, worry about me and try their best to help. I really appreciate them for that.
That being said though, I struggle at times when I get bad periods. Being positive and happy isn't always possible and I slip into periods of depression, frustration and anger far more often than I would like. I hate that those I love end up suffering as well during these periods.
I guess I would just like some advice as to how I can get through these periods without causing those around me too much distress.
Thanks in advance.
