Hurting Most of the Time

My wife began a downward depression spiral about 11 years ago. She's received medication and has "leveled off." But she remains detatched from me, cool and distant. We live like brother and sister.

I cannot talk to her. I've tried. Now it hurts too much to try.

I have barely anyone to talk to. I don't want to finish my life like this. I cannot divorce now because we still have a young child and I can't bear the thought of leaving her alone this way.

I wish I had some friend. I crave intimacy. It hurts to type this.
