I am 54 years old and I have no friends. I've had a few through my life but none that have been lasting. I have had 53 jobs in my life time and I have never had a major success of any kind.
I have raised and married off a boy and a girl and I have been divorced and remarryed once. I have 3 grandchildren (one adopted) and a forth on the way.
I have recently quit a job due to extrene stress and it has been nearly 3 months and I am just now beginning to feel that stress go away.
As I get older and gain greater maturity I am beginning to reaslize that all of the frustration and stress and discontent and disappointment and failures that have occurred in my life I have been bottling them up inside and since I do not have any friends in which to share my experiences, I have kept most of them to myself. All of this stored grief is definitely effecting my quality of life. Although not depressed to any great extent, I am frequently angry and sad. The anger sometimes turnes to rage and it is really hard to control the rage.
I have a very loving relationship with my wife, but the stuff that's bottled up inside of me are not things I would be comfortable sharing with her. At least not in it's entirety. I need to find a group of people, preferrably my peers, that I can site down with and vent some of this frustration and discontent.
I've reached a point in my life where if I don't find some answers pretty sonn about who and what I am and what I really can do, I will missed out and my life will have produced nothing of any significance. The thought of dying without having left so much as a small mark or bot having left a single friend is very depressing and sad.
Is there someone out there who can direct me to a vent or help me find some answers.

You express yourself very well. Being able to do so face to face with a trained counselor would undoubtedly help you to process all the emotions you've kept bottled up. I highly recommend it.

Since I wrote this note, I have since seen my family doctor and he has put me on anti-depressants. I have also managed to get a quick appointment with a psychiatrist this Saturday and I am hoping to get some serious guidance there.
But, bottom line, I need an adult support group that I can join and be allowed to vent my problems and get genuine unbiased feedback. Does anyone have any knowledge of such a group in the Greater Toronto Area. That help would do more than anything else for me right now.
