I can relate to your story. I feel that same way so often. I have a friend (and I too) are experiencing issues with Low Testosterone, which has been linked to depression.
I found these statements about this subject on a site called reNEWMAN. the site is http://renewman.com

It says:

Testosterone levels start to decline in the late 20?s. Most men will feel the effects of lowT beginning at about age 35. Symptoms include the following:

* Depression, or loss of eagerness and enthusiasm for daily life
* Low energy
* Decreased mental quickness
* Decreased desire for physical activity
* Decreased desire for intimacy ? reduced sex drive and function
* Decreased muscle tone
* Weight gain, increase in body fat, particularly around the mid-section
* Night sweats and trouble sleeping
* Mild to moderate irritability, including mood swings

Have you explored anything with this??

I never knew how much the domino effect can have but the echoes of mine still are reverberating four years after beginning what has now become the strangest journey I have ever taken.

It began four years ago in the throes of a midlife crisis. My wife and I made a very good living and had a pretty good life but something was missing. We were both discontent, it seemed like work predominated our lives.

We made a conscious decision to change our lives which included pulling up stakes and moving.

Then the first domino fell, the bottom fell out of the housing market. It seemed (and in fact it was) that one bad thing rolled into another, the punches just kept on coming. In a condensed version of the last four years it was the longest hardest time I have had in my life and that includes all the hard times you go through as a young person starting out in life. When your young hard times are just something you overcome and expect on your way up, but when your middle age hard times are not fun and can lead to quite a spiral of depression.

Some people will never experience what I have in the last four years. I'm not sure if I'm better for having gone though it or worse. I have come to enjoy the simpler things in life and learned to live a much simpler life. I also have been turned off by many things and have a different maybe more cynical slant on some things.

I have begun somewhat of a rebound re-entering my field in a decent paying job etc. but I still feel like there is something else out there and that my journey good or bad still has a new bend in the road ahead a fork as it were in Robert Frost poem where he took the path less traveled and it made all the difference.
