I married my husband knowing his depression, loving my stepson as my own but not realizing the responsibility because of their disorders would affect my daughter directly as my husband still has not bonded with my daughter and my stepson is showing signs of Aspergers. How do I continue to hold on without running away? We just married in January but have been living together for two years prior. And his ex is a narcissist who does not care about anything but hating me. NO really, every action and word is against me even though I tried to befriend her. My daughters stepmother and I have a wonderful relationship we are really good friends and are open about everything so that our daughter can have the best life...but my stepsons mother is a psycho who involves him in adult topics and cares nothing about his disorder. My husband has been hiding behind his depression but I am done with it as he has been making breakthroughs and is now just realizing the responsibility put upon me. I was a single mother with one daughter. Now I am a single mother with two kids and a husband who acts like one. Any suggestions? Help? Knowledge?
We are all in therapy and the husband just finally made a breakthrough but he has a very long road ahead of him. I just wanted to know if there were any others suffering from such issues ALL AT ONCE and that I am not the only lucky one :) There is love in our family when everyone is on their good days sigh. Maybe I should just write a book...I could call it "Disorders and Issues to look for when considering blending a family and how to survive them" Well I got the first part down. Just need help on the surviving...
