Our expert says:
I think sometimes, if good marriage counselling by a competent counsellor, doesn't work, there is often a need for at least one of the couple to move on into individual counselling. As aduolts, we need to learn to be confident and comfortable alone - and are then more free to form good relationships, too.
And, as you've discovered by perhaps compromising too comprehensively, you can be very alone while technically within a relationship.
I don't see a great deal of point in carrying on LIKE THIS, but it's the like this that needs to change. See a shrink ( if possible ) for a proper assessment - you may understandably have become depressed, and deserve treatment for that, and maay need personal therapy / counselling to work out what is now best for you and how to achieve that
