As I write this - he (my husband of 36 years) is upstairs in the other room going to sleep. He is depressed - he doesn't know why - he has been like this on and off for the last 10 years.
He doesn't have any interest in sex and that would be fine except that I do. For the last 10 years of this I figured it would eventually end but now I'm thinking this is my life and I'm scared. We have talked about this- we have seen counselors for different things that have come up in the last 10 years.
I do love him and I would like to find something that will help him.
Any ideas will be welcome.Noel's response
The only things I can suggest for the physical symptoms are anti-depressants and/or exercise (which can be very effective in lifting the symptoms of depression).
You and he both might also find the book "Loving What Is" by Byron Katie useful. She was severely depressed, and had a sudden revelation as to the cause of her depression. She now speaks internationally about it. Her website is: The Work
