This sounds incredibly frustrating and stressful. I’m sorry you are going through this. And he should be thankful you are supporting him/ standing by his side, not taking out his anger on you!


you mention that you are too afraid to take days off your pain due to his unemployment. I’m wondering, in an ideal world, if he was steadily employed, how would you balance your pain and work? Are you hoping that eventually when he becomes employed, you might be able to cut back on your hours? If so, You are completely justified in doing so, but it’s something you guys have to agree on, otherwise there might be resentment.

OP, it sounds like you have comebacks for every suggestion being made. Not saying they’re excuses – for example, trying therapy and getting nowhere is absolutely a valid reason to be fed up. My point is that it does sound like you’re truly over it, and it’s not for lack of trying – you truly have. It sounds like you’ve done your best to hang in there. I agree with a PP who said it sounds like you’re kicking the can down the road. You truly sound unhappy and that’s no place for anyone to be.

I’m so sorry and wish you the best of luck. But it sounds like you’d be happier out of this marriage.
