Dear Roe,

I am a 38-year-old educated person, having spent almost my entire life studying and focusing on my career. I have been married for 10 years to a man I care about but with whom I was never in love. We have a son. Soon after my son was born, I started to feel depressed, as there was no sex life and no romantic feelings. I had therapy and got better, getting my life busy for four years.
