upset wife - April 19

Anyone else having problems w/ their husbands just completely losing it? I know I'm hormonal nowadays, but my husband has made me so sad--I'm @ work right now trying not to cry; he quit his job in Nov, so I had to immediately find one, which I did. We think he's got bipolar disorder, but he won't go to the dr's when I tell him to b/c of the $35 copay. We don't have much money at all, and he's supposed to start training for a job today . . . now he's decided he doesn't want to go b/c he won't be able to start for two weeks anyway b/c we can't afford daycare until then. HOW STUPID IS THAT?!! Just tell them he can't start until May . . . MOST PLACES WILL UNDERSTAND THAT!!!!!!!!! He's frustrating me to the point of tears, and I'm so angry at him!!! Why do they have to pull this c__p while we're already on a roller coaster?!

Sorry to read this, They can be real a__ses at times, and it always seem to be at the worst time. My problem with mine was misery. He was miserable all the time. My mother in law had to talk to him and explain that he should not be stress me out like that. I can understand I cry for everything too. Things have a way of working out. Maybe you can talk to him and remained him of your condition(perhaps a mishap on his part) and he just let him know you need his support. If he continues to be an a__s do what I do ignore him.

Ouch, this sucks! I don't even know what to say to you except I feel for your situation. I hope he's not just trying to come up with excuses to avoid going back to work. Here's a suggestion.... How about you quit your job, stay at home with your kids, and become a day care provider. That way you don't have the added expense of childcare, you are still able to work and make money.

I'm going to have to stay at home after this baby's born probably anyway b/c we can't afford 2 kids in daycare . . . I only net $1300/month, daycare would cost at least that much, probably more plus driving expenses . . . but this is the only way for my son and myself to have health insurance in the meantime. So he is just being mean. I haven't cried at all since I became pregnant, but he made me today. I've been getting mad easier, but not crying upset (until today). Thanks for the support though. Mine told me he was miserable too, apparently w/ me and our son (he says our son handcuffs him to not be able to get a job). Nice.

Upset Wife: You should check into social programs in your area that offer daycare a__sistance to working parents. These benefits are often available to working families that meet income guidelines. This will help with your daycare worries and allow your husband to be free to get a job!!! Good luck!

Sounds like he is being a real a__s. Boy some man make you want to serouisly kill. I would look into whatever help you can get with the programs. Put your foot down and tell him if he is not any help dont be any hurt. You should ask him if he wants to switch and carry the baby since he wants to stay home. Oh yea the was miserable should be is miserable cause it has not gone yet. Hopefully after the baby comes cause I am going to kill him then. LOL Best of luck
