My husband ignores me. My daughter is suffering from depression and I’m maxed out. In the past ten years I have deathed my mother, father, and taken care of my husband who has suffered from a severe depressive disorder. He is now in remission, but my daughter is suffering. We spend no time together and all I do is give. I fell in love with another man 3 years ago. Never acted on it, but think of him every day. The longing for touch, talk, and laughter is enough to smother you as well as reduce your energy to the consistency of molasses. He is an emotional coward and the doctors have told him this. He’s been told that continuing to heap his emotional work on me could kill me. Maybe that’s what he wants. Why not just let me go?
