Our expert says:
Depression is a heavy burden to carry, but you should know that with the proper treatment, medicinal as well as with counselling, it can be greatly helped. Maybe with your complications in terms of the extra-marital affairs, and the drinking, you need the counselling component especially. And you know that drinking only worsens a depression, and increases your risk of doing daft things like being promoscuous or otherwise endangering yourself. And this degree of over-work is also daft and self-damaging. In no company that is properly run should anyone need to or even be allowed to, work so hard and long. So --- cut down on this excessive work load. Cut out all affairs, of whatever nature. See a shrink, a psychiatrist in the first place, and get a proper assessment and advice on treatment, which may welll include antidepressant medications, and ask specifically to be referred to a suitable counsellor to work on all the other issues. You can get everything cleared up including the depression, and return to a happier and more wholesome way of life. It'll take some hard work on your side, but you're very well capable of that. Don't let long work hours be any excuse for avoiding the treatment you know you need --- working yourself into the ground won't help at work, either !
