I've been married for 15 years, but lately it is so strained. My husband hates to hear about my illness, hates to hear that I don't feel good, does NOTHING to help me...his friend came over today early, and he gave me 20 bucks to take my son to the movies tongiht. I really didn't feel like it, but went as my son was so excited. I came home, feeling awful, and was hoping to have a relaxing night and go to bed. Instead, I come home to my husband and his friend STILL HERE at 11PM drinking and acting like they were going to keep at it all night. My husband made snide comments about how he'd had a GREAT day. I felt like it was because I wasn't around. I know he's under a lot of stress being the sole provider. I used to be the money maker until this happened to me. I seriously resent having to ask for money. I think my husband just thinks I am a drag and that I'm faking and lazy. ONe day he said that he was the only one around here that wasn't 'sorry.' I'd had a bad day that day and had not got any housework done. It was all I could do to watch our son that day and get meals made. What do you do? I pray I get my social security so I can gain just a bit of my equality in the household back - as being able to contribute somewhat. How have you guys got through the relationship woes?
