My partner and I have been together for 5 years and just recently had a son in February. During the pregnancy he was distant and down right unsupportive. Mad at me for being tired and cranky. Our son was born 7 weeks early and when he was in the NICU my partner was so there for me, and I thought, there is the man I fell in love with. NOw when my son is upset and I am just too tired he gets angry when I ask for help. He is annoyed that I cannot take care of the hosue or him (sexually), but I am so damn tired. My son is very demanding and I am lucky to have 2 hoiurs out of 24 a day to myself without a baby attached to my boob or in his snuggly. Not to mention the dogs we had before the baby. Everything is MY resposibilty, and he wonders why I am not into sex?) Finally yesterday he basically told me that he can't do this anymore, because I supposedly don't love him. Sadly I do love him with my whole heart... but is it reallyu worth it anymore? When I was doing the laundry he just took off without saying goodbye and left me for 12 hours to wonder where the heck he had gone. I know now, he is a thousand km away. Run away from me and my son. In some ways I am done too, maybe doign everything alone is easier when you actually are and you don't hope for a superman to come in and help out? I am afraid financially and emotionally... how do you do it? I am so afraid that I will crumble? Any tips?
