Hi, I am sorry you are feeling this way. Stress and not feeling your are being supported can do this to a person. If your husband is "too busy" who do you turn to? I would suggest that you continue getting psychological help and you may want to explore taking medication. Your stress is telling you something, you may be depressed and that is something you need to address. You might also want to speak with your husband and tell him you need more from him, whether it be listening to you, helping you around the house, dealing with the adult children or going out for some fun. If you are becoming too busy for each other that is not a healthy sign for your marriage. Marriage counseling might be helpful too.
