I have started feeling depressed and losing my interest in life. Please advise

Im 26 yrs old and married for 2 yrs(love marriage). He is very caring and lovable. He smokes. He is 28 yrs old. The problem is weve a very poor sex life. Frequency of intercoure is 2-4 a month. It was a little better at 4-6 a month soon after marriage. He weighs 95 and is 62" tall. Ive put on more weight recently. I weigh 84 and is 58" tall. I like to have atleast 3 intercouses in a week. But though he too wants to have, he is not initiating or if i initiate he says he is tired. We have even changed our home so that he travels less(sighted this as a reason earlier). He enjoys self sex most of the time. Says he started this when he was in his teenage. I feel very upset and whenever i speak to him about sex, he gets angry or tries to console me by saying hell be more sensitive and never does. Ive even left my job because i wanted a child and he said i leave my job before that. Its 10 months since iam at home and there is no improvement in our sex life. Recently he had UT infection and we found that he is diabetic. Hell sight this as an excuse hereafter, which iam deeply worried. What should i do to make him involve in sex? Now that our marriage is 2 yrs old, family members have started asking about a child and everyone is suggesting i undergo treatment. Ive met a doctor already and advised us to increase our intercourse frequency, which my husband is not doing.Im not able to tell this to anyone and ive started feeling depressed and losing my interest in life. Please advise.

This is a somewhat complex situation May I suggest for you to consult a clinical psychologist or counselor who works with relationships near your place of residence.

Hi, I have been with my boyfriend for a year now. at the start he said that he gets a little down when it becomes winter but i never really thought it would be this serious. 2 months ago he started to become distant and it felt like he wasnt in the relationship msgs become less and he wouldnt talk to me on the phone or arrange to see me it was me doing all the work. This made me resentful which lead to arguments. I asked him one day does he want to be with me and he replied i cant be in a relationship with you right now you deserve someone that can give you what you deserve as he cant express anything the way he is feeling he says he still loves me and txts to say he is thinking of me but he cant cope with a relationship right now the way he is feeling. He doesnt know why he feels they way he does and says it gives him a feeling of knots in his chest. Im trying to understand but what i want to know is, is this signs of depression and should i walk away.
