Our expert says:
Sounds as though you are experiencing a complex and very uncomfortable reaction to the shock of discovering that your husband, who maybe you over-valued, has cheated. Finding that something / someone you valued so highly can turn out to be so much less than you assumed, you may be over-reacting by assuming that nothing has permanent value and that nothing is worth loving or caring about.
Shocked by the results of being perhaps too trusting, you have reacted by becoming too untrusting ; having been over-invested in one person, you have become under-invested in almost everything else.
Seeing a psychotherapist / counsellor would be a really good idea, as you are unnecessarily, even if understandably, depriving yourself of much joy in life now and for the future.
