Last year I was hospitalized for four days with severe PPD when my second son was 3 months old. After a lot of hard work, therapy, support from friends and family, and the right antidepressants, I feel a thousand times better. Some days are still tough. I have a seven year old son and I am a stay at home mom. The other morning I needed my husband's help. He rolled his eyes, huffed-and-puffed, and said, "It's BEEN a YEAR!!!" as if I should be supermommy by now. My stomach turned to knots, my face felt red, and I felt like I was an inch tall. We have been seeing a marriage counselor once a month for 8 months. Do you think there is hope for us? Or should I just throw in the towel with this marriage? We've been together for 8 years, but all we ever do is fight. I'm exhausted by him. I'm happier when he is at work. My older son is starting to feel the tension. Honestly, I feel like he just doesn't care about anything except work. We've slept together 3 times in the past year. I've faked orgasms to get him off of me. Should I divorce him or stay in this marriage for the children?
