Question: 

I am the betrayed spouse and I have fallen into a deep dark depression episode. I have always suffered from mild clinical depression and anxiety but this incident has just pushed me over the edge. I think part of it is postpartum due to the fact I had a baby 4 months ago. But I have never felt like this before. I have no energy, no motivation and always feel exhausted now matter how much rest I get. And the only bit of energy I seem to have obviously goes straight into the kids. I just think my self worth is so low and it’s just really taking a toll on the recovery. My unfaithful spouse wants to work on the relationship but I feel like I am pushing him away due to the depression. I’m on antidepressants and doing counseling but just feel tired and hopeless.
