Hi Brooklyn56,

I was looking at your poll and see you are wondering where to start off at. I would say seeing a psychologist would be the best place to start. If they think you need medication they will tell you to see your doctor or hook you up with a psychiatrist. If you can even see a social worker or therapist, it would help.

I am sorry that you are unhappy with your marriage. It sounds like your husband is barely existing in your life. Know that things can get better, even your opinion of him. Once you start sorting things out you will begin to feel better.

Keep posting and know that we care.

Hugs, Karen

i agree with GB, its time to get it off your chest and in the open. Have you tried talking with your husband about what you and he's feeling? Kinda sounds like he may be having some depression as well. See if you can drag him in too, perhaps separate sessions for both and eventually you can work into couples sessions?
When the only tool you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail.

with your past and your future precisely divided, Am I at that moment?. . I haven't decided.

Get your hubby in for a health check if this is happening out
of the blue, (all of a sudden) could be medically related
illness, and from there maybe seek out an expert in relationships
a marriage councellor, before anything else.
keep us posted on this.

Hmmm, I'm very sad to hear you're going through this... I can relate to the 'generally feeling unhappy' thing, although for very different circumstances... Unfortunately I'm not so sure if anything I say will be helpful, and I'm completely new to this place, but talking about it here was a good idea... Find people who care and talk about it all with them... Don't let yourself bottle things up, like I have been doing... That's the only advice I can think to give you... If you can't find anyone to talk to, I'd be willing to listen sometime...
