Just need time

My husband doesnt give me time alone since my daughter was born i have maybe had 4 hours alone and 3 of them are because my mom took her when i was sick how do i get him to give me time alone? I let him go deer hunting for 5 days and to my brothers house to watch a fight and i get nothing in return. Im a stay at home mom and just want a few hours alone. I have post partum depression also bad enought Im on lexapro.

  • Tell him "no more" no more free time to himself at all. if he doesn't listen MAKE him. Get dressed and tell him you're leaving the house for a while, don't give him a chance to say no.

  • Men don't know how to repay the favor... so don't let him and have him around and maybe can steel some time alone in your room watching a movie. OR just hide his bullets!!!!!!!

  • Sometimes men just don't get it, you may have to sit him down and say " Look, you get to go do things and I really need that too"
    We (hubby and I) had that issue for awhile(after we were first married) and then I started making plans and told him. Things have been fine since.
