Unsure of what to do in my current situation but I am in a relationship where my significant other cannot accept my children from my previous marriage. he wants everything done his way or nothing at all. I am not allowed to leave the house, im currently at home taking care of the child we have together. He doesnt help out with the kids...he doesnt help make dinner anymore it gets left up to me. I clean the house all day long so its to his specifications.. I have to do all the laundry and put it away, I get yelled at if he cant find any clothes. If i leave the basket at the bottom of the stairs he wont even bring it up. nor if i leave the trash bag outside our door on the steps he wont even walk to the dumpster to take care of it. One time it sat for more than 3 days. SInce i take care of all receipts and such, if he asks for any one of them and if it got misplaced he trashes the entire apartment trying to find it. Which leaves me in turn to pick up it all b/c he will yell at me to pickit up. He keeps bringing up the fact that we had our daughter b/c my birth control failed. and questions why I didnt have an abortion w/ her if im so frustrated all day long while im caring for her. um hello?? I have to do everything if I dont he certainly isnt going to. he works but doesnt help financially w/ all of our household expenses. I am up from like 5ish in the morning and dont go to bed until maybe midnight. then if he calls when he is done work he gets huffy w/ me b/c i have such an attitude..well i dont really sleep, i didnt realize i had to be happy 24/7. I just cant im frustrated im exhausted and i just need him to help...Does anyone have any advice or has been in this situation???
