It sounds as though your problem is more complex than it might appear, as is usually the case. Again, I guess the first thing is to decide whether you want to re-establish your faith life. If it is important to you, but you have complex feelings about the church and about God, perhaps a pastoral counselor can help you work through them, much as a marriage counselor would help you work through your problems with a spouse.
Good luck with whatever you decide to do. An intimate connection with God can be a wonderful source of strength. I'm not really the emotional sort, and I don't often "feel" that intimate connection. But I find a certain amount of comfort and peace in my commitment to God, and I think I would find it worth fighting for.
