Hi don’t know where to begin so forgive me. I am 36 male been married 11 years never thought of another woman til recently. Started down a depression mid life crisis spiral of pain.started crushing on a 22 year old. I feel pain hatred and complete disgust for myself. I can’t stand to be around me anymore told my wife and stopped talking to the girl from work but only seem too make things worse.. can’t seem too dig myself out of this hole I have no one too talk to and my wife told me that I never should have let her know I have to go to work every day and it feels like hell

@Darkside777 Hey, I hope you're doing ok. I agree with @Onederwmn2020, I think finding a therapist could really help you. It really helped me work through a lot of things I'd been struggling with. Maybe a therapist could help you forgive yourself and love yourself. And maybe if your wife is ok with it, maybe trying a couples therapy session could be beneficial. But I think it's important that you forgive yourself and be kind to yourself. You will get through this.
