Hello, friends. In this episode, I answer two questions related to insecurities within marriage where there is a lack of intimacy, and coping with persistent depression that has left you feeling hopeless with no passion for life.
Hey Dr. Duff,
I’m struggling with insecurities in my marriage. I need help coping. My wife and I have been married coming up on 5 years. This has never reared its head with me in the past in our relationship. Things in bed have been non-existent and there has been a real lack of intimacy being reciprocated all around.
I don’t know what direction to take in life or how to make myself feel better. I hate everything in my life. My job, where I live, and not being able to follow through with anything. I feel like if I try to take a step in the right direction I get set back and end up back at square one. I am 27, and I have constantly struggled with depression but it is starting to get worse. I have been hospitalized and the last time was 5 years ago. I can hardly eat or maintain a routine let alone care about anything. I don’t know what to do anymore or pick a direction in life. I feel like my life is a joke and all I do is take up space.
