Feeling Overwhelmed

I have developed this in-and-out pattern of feeling safe/unsafe, feeling level/disheveled. That is to an extent normal, but my highs and lows tend to be very variant and I'd like to reach some level of stasis.

This happens because i'm struggling over a few issues of codependency and i do not know how or am unable to surrender the same and let go. I'm hoping someone can help here:

1. I'm gay. My parents don't want me to lead this life as a gay man. as such i've tremendous pressure to stay in the closet but this is creating tremendous pressure and i can't let off the steam easy as i've very few "outs" for the same.

2. Some of the stress/ pressures come out/exhibit itself in a very negative mannerism:
- sexual compulsion,
- anger bursts (and i'm SO not an angry person),
- lost focus/attention to tasks at hand,
- lost interest in life's simple pleasures.

3. I'm unable/unwilling to finish any task that's within close proximity of completion and move onto other things, leaving open myself to lots of losses in many ways.

I really need some help and guidance here as this is relaly hurting and destroying my life harder by the day.

Is there a local place/support group that you could attend?

You don't have to go through this alone...and shouldn't have to.

Also, I am sure that there are some other support forums on the web dealing with gay issues as well that you might could try.

Hang in there!!!
