Our expert says:
Some people do find that, especially with some antidepressants, they find that while the depression lifts, they feel numb. This is where I like CBT counsellin as well, as it ca help to lift the depression without side-effects. Most antidepressants, in some people, can also lead to a loss of libido, which might also not help you if you already have a rather low libido. Is your husband wanting intimacy, or sex ? Sorry to hear that previous attempts at marriage counselling have apparently not been fruitful. Maybe personal counselling for you, not only focussing on the depression but on matters of self-esteem, libido, and handling you husband, could help to shirft things towards a more cheerful way of life
