Married and unhappy
I've been married 15 years just had to retire due to ill health. Money is not a problem but my husband who is younger than me works long hours and I feel he resent me for not having to work. I have good pensions so we are not in hardship . We just argue all the time . Part of my condition is chronic depression . When I feel ok he seems to pick on me until I feel low again I know he is part of the problem but I dont have the energy to start again at my age he wont go to counselling so dont suggest that as an answer. Normally I would be out and about but I am so unwell now I rarely leave the house alone or find the motivation too. I still do the housework and cooking . I shop on line he does do a bit more since I've been unwell but not significantly so and that's not the problem . There is little intimacy which was his choice I feel rejected and life has no meaning any more. I think my job kept me sane but I am too unwell to return to work. Some days I am ok but I never k now from day to day
