Actually, I don't think he's wanted me for years. Granted, I've gained about 15 lbs, but nothing is shifting that weight -- diets, exercise, nothing. I'm stuck. I had bilateral Bell's Palsy when I had DS, so my face isn't as symmetrical as it used to be, but there's nothing I can do about that. I'm not a perfect housekeeper, but I'm better than I used to be.
I just don't understand. Am I that hideous? Am I that fat and ugly? (5'6", size 10, former pageant winner)
I can't make him see a doctor because he'd never in a million years ask a stranger about low libido.
I've told him that I'd love to have sex more often and he agrees, but then never does anything about it. When I approach him, he turns me away more often than not, so I've learned not to start anything. Rejection hurts.
We've been married almost 16 yrs and for the last 12 or so we've had sex 3-5 times a year and not at all this year.
Am I stuck? Is this it?

You probably need to go to couples counseling. I don't believe it has to do anything with your appearance. This one is on him, his has personal issues. Approach the subject very carefully.
