I 'm tired of not having any time to myself. I am tired of never seeing my husband. I am tired of being constantly misunderstood whenever I get upset. I am not going overboard. He should just listen for God sake! It's not always about him and what he wants. I want to be content an happy with him. Why does it always seem to be one or the other?

I feel for ya big time and came empathize.  My hubby is so rarely home he works about 180 miles away and he works 72 -96 hour shifts I have the kids to myself all the time and I work full time.  It seems there are never enough hours for anything.  And occasionally when the hubby gets home he just doesnt want to deal cause he thinks he is to tired.  So pretty much I just let him know I am doing my job with my job and I am doing my job with the kids plus I am doing his job with the kids and our job with our home.  Ususally that little reminder helps him to remember it is about us not him. 

I wish you the best and good luck with the hubby

Feb. 2, 2008 at 2:56 AM Just focus on yourself and he won't have that effect on you anymore.  people misunderstand me too and I realize its because I speack my mind.  People who misunderstand me or pretend to are those who wish they could be like us,so they pretend were the crazy one.  People choose to misunderstand people.  Don't worry yorself.  Be true to you and forget about what people think.  If they can't understand you,just let it go,don't waste your energy on them anymore.  Communicate with your husband about all your fears and worries most importantly comunicate to God,and hopefully your husband does the same with you because you need eachothers strenght.  Focus on your family,but yourself first.  Go for a drive,massage,to the movies alone,get a babysitter,or ask a family member to watch your kids if you have any.  Or just tell your hubby you need some down time for yourself.  If your not happy,your family will not be happy,because its the women who holds the family together.   Don't try to hard in making him happy,work on you.
