Well Tonderai is the name I am going to use here – I am 45 years old. Born in Zimbabwe and went to the UK leaving my family ( wife and children) behind.  The hope was to find me a good job, work for a few years and go back home to my family . 2 years on I  haven’t seen my wife, children and my family. Things just did not turn out the way i thought they would.   I feel that i have wasted my life and missed out on seeing my children grow. I am home seek , lonely and tired. I have resorted to drinking and i drink pretty much everyday. If i am not in work – i just sit at home and drink – i have gained so much weight from just sitting and drinking. I don’t know what going on. i just haven’t got the drive i had before. Some friends have said that i might be depressed but i cant say i know a lot about depression. 

my main worry at the moment is that I am drinking and smoking a lot . I have tried to stop drinking but i find that i am alone most of the time so i end just drinking. 

can anyone help? CryEmbarassed
