Anne, I have been separated from my husband for the past 4 months. We have been married 21 years and have 2 children, 1 at home (16), and 1 not at home. I feel as though for the past 21 years I was the one who sustained our relationship. I was the one who raised our children. Now I am tired of taking care of him. We are in counseling, both individually and together, but I see very little change in him. There are days when I want my freedom more than anything, and then there are the days where I feel that I am the bad person for not sticking it out. I am scared to move on with my life since this is all I have ever known (we got married right after I graduated). I have been suffering with major depression for the last 14 years and I am afraid of staying and afraid of going. Some days it's just a miracle that I even get out of bed, but I continue on with my daily routine when all I want to do is to roll up into a ball and forget about life, forget about having to make decisions...where do I go from here?
