My husband of almost 10 years is miserable. Things are rocky at work and he isn't happy in his position. He is jealous of my best friend and thinks she is more important to me than he is. It's just not true. Now he is convinced that he is losing me. That I am pulling away from him.
I know in my heart I am a good wife to him. I support him with his job and his hobbies. I am a good mother to our children. I make sure the house is clean when he gets home and there is a hot meal every evening. I suck at laundry, however. I have sex with him every time he wants to. I am talking every time. We had sex at 5:30 in the morning before he went to work yesterday to give you an example....
I just don't know how to make him happy. Anybody else ever go through this? I know logically it's not me---he's depressed, but how do I help him?

You can become freakin Donna Reed but it wouldn't matter, since he has to be happy from w/in himself. KWIM? It could be depression & it could also be low testosterone. Don't know how old your husb is, but I've already told mine to get checked out b/c of the funk he's been in lately too. Being miserable in your job (a place you have to spend at least 40 hrs/wk doing) is probably a big factor. I've seen too many people hate their jobs so much, & it's sad that they are stuck, or think they are. Push for that Dr. appt. Make it for him & go with him if you have to. GL!
