help
i've got a great job, just recently married too - but the fact is i really hate my life... I hate everything about me and find that so many times i just want to leave and run away from everybody. My husband - my family, people at work they all have no idea. Last night i tried opening up to my husband and it just didnt work. He didnt get it at all! The pain i feel inside i cannot describe in words - it's worse then depression. I find i just want to run away. I want to change my name and hide for the rest of my life - i dont want anyone to find me - not my family, my husband not even my co-workers! If i could i would live in the shadows and never come out - not until i was definetely sure of my safety. My heart has taken too many a beating and just wants to rest now? What can i do to convince myself of where i am...?

iss, this sounds like it could very well be a variety of depression, which could respond very well to proper treatment. The Anhedonia, the loss of pleasure in what would otherwise please us, is typical. Do, please, see a good local psychiatrist for a proper assessment, so you can then discuss treatment options. Give proper treatment a real chance, before deciding anything about giving up on the marriage, the job, or anything else.
