I feel so low and depressed, i fight to keeps my tears back so i dont get upset in front of my children, but when im alone i cant fight them back anymore, im just constantly upset at the slightest little thing, i feel like i have failed been a mum and as a wife, i feel so hopeless. I dont want to go out i just want to stay in and when i do go out if i have to i feel like everyone is staring at me and all i can think about is going back home where noone can look at me, i feel unappreciated, unwanted and feel like i dont matter to anyone, i have trouble talking face to face about what i am feeling, i opened up to my husband last night, which is the only one person i trust and i thought cared but his responses to what i was saying felt like he didnt care, all i wanted was a cuddle from him and for him to tell me everything would be okay but he wouldnt even do that, we dont interact we dont cuddle or kiss or do anything, he has anxiety and when he was gping through a hard time i did everything in my power ti try and help him but now hes better and its me going through a hard time i dont get anything back, i honestly dont know what to do

Hi, I understand that this is a difficult and upsetting situation. Have you told your husband that you're feeling low and unappreciated? That you were there for him and that you feel that he's not doing the same for you?  Perhaps you could write him a letter or an e-mail to better get your meaning across. Do you have anyone else you can talk to, friends or family members? Maybe counselling would be helpful, you can ask your GP to be referred to a NHS service or privately through the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy or the Counselling Directory. If you're feeling low and need someone to talk to you can call the Samaritans freephone helpline on 116 123. If you feel you need further support please e-mail us at askus@familylives.org.uk or call our freephone helpline on 0808 800 2222.
