Hi David, life sure gets tough sometimes. I am 60 and also live in Canada. (Ontario) I deal with many health issues as well as mental health along with the curves life gives you. I have had a history of emotional abuse starting in childhood and live with the after effects daily. I think as for me, I have to stand up and do something to change my life or it will always be the same or worse.. We need to take our lives into our own hands sometimes and get out there and get help. As mentioned in the above response, CBT is useful, I am also seeking that type of therapy, along with biting the bullet and joining some new activities. Hope you get some answers.
