Hello Missyellow and Mom,
I just wanted to welcome both of you to the depression forum. I am so happy that you two have joined us.
Yes depression does effect our self image and our sex lives. It is sad that it happens. We have to do things to get ourselves to feel good about
ourselves. I know that it is hard, but it can be done. We have to learn to accept ourselves for who we are and love ourselves.
Missyellow, I think if you talk to your husband let him know that you really miss all of the things that you use to do. Maybe you could just be together alone and work on this gradually. You can be intimate without sex for a while and hopefully the desire will come back to him. Work on it together. And try not to take it personally. I am sure that this is from the depression and the depression only.
I hope that the two of you keep posting. Try to remember to work on the self image. You are both special beautiful people and you need to feel that way.
