My husband is an undiagnosed bipolar manic depressive. Our financial situation is, well, it f***ing sucks.
He is the only one working and he can't stand the idea of putting the little ones in daycare. I understand that.
He has a nice job. It's not great but jeez, its a job. Not too many people we know can say they even have a job.
His checks are about 6-900 every week. We're behind in bills so yes we're playing catch up, but thankfully we've been able to work things out with anyone we owe so we have time you know.
Dh seems to NEVER be happy. With the job he had before this one he complained about the commute, before that he complained about not being home and only making a very small amount of money. Now he complains about still not making the money he wants even though he's home more.
He has this delusion that he'll find THE perfect job. It'll pay him 1500 a week, he'll be home every night and off every Friday, Sat, and Sunday. I'm like, "Uh no." Not with the trade that you have, not a possibility.
I ask him to PLEASE find the little things to be happy about.
He says it's his bipolar. But he's been using that line more and more often.
I'm worried that it ISN'T his bipolar and he really CAN'T be happy. That he's one of those people will will NEVER be satisfied.
What would you do in this situation?
