I am a 59 year-old married man, father of two grown sons and I already have 5 grandchildren. I worked in a local bank since I was in my mid 20’s, but two months ago they let me go. After a couple of weeks of partial relief from being out of a work environment that, as of late, was rather hostile, I started becoming increasingly depressed and irritable.
I no longer feel the way I used to about myself or about life. I stay by myself a lot and I am spending more and more time in my room. I don’t want to be bothered. I have less energy and I’ve lost interest in the football season. Lately, the only thing that seems to cheer me up is when my grandchildren come to visit.
