I would love to shine some light on your situation and say that there are many others who care. Being my first post, I don't want to give too much advice. However, my therapist is always emphasizing that fulfillment for me needs to come from within. Affairs will cause massive erosion of self esteem, and being alone in your situation would make anyone want to curl up in a ball. Please, please find someone professional to talk to...you will not regret it. I think it's vitally necessary. You can get better. Many of us have. It's a lot of work, but you are worth every second and the rest of your life awaits you. It will be better because you have the strength to make it that way. Trust me.
When my husband leaves the house for work, I still find myself getting lost in myself. I feel like a failure sometimes because of my dependence on him. I'm still working through a lot of this with the therapist who gave us marriage counseling. It's a continual process for me, but I've seen improvement and now I have tools (and medications!) to help me through. I understand where you are. It's a very low place. But there is light, and it does get better, especially when you learn to like...even love...yourself.
