    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    my neverending unhappiness and depression causing marital problems

    resttheweary posted:
    I'm undergoing treatment for schizo-affective disorder, PTSD, GAD, delusional disorder, fibromyalgia. I can't find it in myself to be happy, nor have i ever. It seems my husband and i just live together, as if we don't lead a married life, just co-exist while we raise our two young daughters. He's at his breaking point, it's going on 2 yrs of me being this way, i can't show love/affection toward him because i don't feel those emotions anymore. He sleeps during the day and stays up at night, while i sleep at night and do housework/taking care of kids during the day. My lack of happiness is causing his depression/insomnia/. I don't know what to do, he says meet him on middle ground, but i just don't understand things the way most people do and i'm losing him slowly but surely. not sure what i'm looking for in a response, just can't take being such a burden to him anymore. I've been rejected and given up on by many people in my life, and i understand that. I'm lost as to what to do anymore! I'll add that he is very supportive of my mental disorders, he's hit a brick wall though.
