i know how you feel. I feel the same way with my H. for years i was really depressed about it. I am still sad about it but not depressed.
i think you have to start giving yourself what you need. its heartbreaking not to be able to get love from your husband, but as long as you are happy what difference does it matter how you got that way. and if you are the one to make yourself happy then you know you can always enjoy life no matter who you are with. that is my current approach. im back to rebuilding my life. I still get sad that my H hardly participates in the things i like but like i said, its just a lingering sadness and not a miserable depression.
