Not sure where I should post this but I need to get this off my chest.
Okay so this is like a vent but also looking for some input.
Brief history - I am bipolar/depression/anxiety. I do/can not work due to these reasons at this time so I am home. I am married to a man that works hard physical labor 50 hrs a week. We have an 18 yr old living at home while going to college 3 days a week.
I am good for a few hours of something daily, but then I am just wiped out especially if it is physical work. So I do what I can in the a.m.'s I have been getting better and getting a second wind and cooking dinner more and getting some of the clean up done that night in stead of saving for the a.m.
My husband feels that since he works like he does he doesn't need to do things like shovel or wood when he is home. Heck he really doesn't think he needs to do anything 12 out of 14 days. Once in a while he starts a load of laundry or cooks dinner.
Our son feels that since dad doesn't do much than neither should he. When he is asked to do something he puts it off and puts it off till I end up doing as it needs to get done like wood.
So anyway this really gets to me at times. I am sure not good for my blood pressure.l It is a definite trigger that can ruin my whole day, stress drains all my energy.
Son says if I keep reminding him he just keeps ignoring me so I try not to but...... when it has been 3 days I think I can start harping.
Husband says I should be able to do it all (not in so many words) he is able to spend his wk-ends visiting friends. Is it so much to ask that if I am doing the physical work about the house he couldn't put away his laundry or fold a load of his clothes.
Could them both not just pick up after themselves, rinse there dishes or put them in the dish washer.
Sorry I am having a bad morning and getting up to my sons mess and my husbands laundry still in buckets just got me going.
