I'm tired of being the only one that does anything with the kids. I go to their events alone and the list goes on and on. I feel I only exist to keep the house clean and keep the fridge stocked and keep the t.p on the roll. I have no emotional support from my husband. He's always depressed. I have tried EVERYTHING to make him happy and nothing works. I feel like me and the kids have our lives and he has his. Every once in a while our paths connect it's just not anything other than like watching a movie. When I try to go out with him I always regret it. I want attention from him so bad. I've never cheated on him. I can see that women don't just cheat for the sex but just to have someone be nice to them and notice them. I want a break so bad. I never even got a day off when I came home from the hospital with any of our kids. Does anyone else feel similar?

I had a friend with a depressed husband, he has other issues too. She was in the position of being defined as married/living as an only parent, at times the only one in the house working with the stress of his issues having a horrid effect on her & more sadly their son. The boy is now 16, has no relationship with the father. Because of her issues & putting up with his non involvement in their marriage for 22 years or being a father in ANY way the household is dysfunctional on every level A-Z. She started acting like the husband & when THAT happened the boy had no supervision & no parents. Sad, what I witnessed. They are miserable people with self-inflicted conflict & negative attitudes about everything. The saddest part is what it has done to the boy. It is hard to have any hope for that boy to be an accomplished young man. Trouble in school, running the roads way after dark, lying to & disrespecting elders, etc..
