i havent posted on here for a while, but i'm starting to feel myself snapping.
I have fibromyalgia along with severe depression, my husband doesn't understand what depression is like, none of his family has ever suffered with it, so he just keeps telling me "look on the brightside" or "you've got me"!!!
comments like that really don't help. My husband suffers from arthritis, but he still seems to be able to do everything he wants to do, unlike me.
This last week, all he has been doing is snapping at me, if he has a problem i try to help him to sort it by suggesting something, but he just snaps at me. i have tried ignoring it when he does it, but tonight i just snapped back.
im getting fed up of being the one who has to put up with his mood swings, he is not depressed but i don't know what has got in to him.
My husband seems to think that whatever he has wrong with him, like a sore throat, is alot worse than what i'm having to go through. I am in alot of pain everyday, and yet i still have to do all the cleaning, washing etc. I have asked him to help me on so many occasions and he says "i'll do it in a bit", it never gets done until i do it, so now i just think its best for me to do it in the first place.
His parents arn't much better, if they come round to our place and it hasn't been cleaned, its suddenly my fault because i'm the woman. well in my opinion if neither of us are working, it should be up to the both of us, shouldn't it????
Sorry about going on, i just needed to vent and im at a loose end and don't know what to do.
Thanks for reading :)
