    Terrified And Depressed

    It's getting harder and harder for me to eat, sleep, or work. My wife and I keep going to counseling, but I don't feel like she's trying, she doesn't seem to want to be there, and she barely acknowledges me when I'm home. I give her a heartfelt good morning and get a snippy "hi...
