I can't figure out how to get the circling feeds from the bottom to go away or at least give me room to type. I am struggling and am stuck. I love my boyfriend and his daughter and want him to have her in his life. It's been hell. 2.5 years ago, shortly after he lost his job, his exwife decided thathe didn't get to see his daughter. they (he and his daugher - had a great relationship). They were on a 50/50 schedule. He eventually lost his house in foreclosure, etc. He foundwork and now has a great job - but is out of town all week and home on the weekends. We live together. He now sees his daugher every other weekend. Which is better than it was. There are court cases, other battles, like his exwife changing his daughter's last name.................and if you can imagine, our relationship has struggled severely too. he is constantly stressed and tired. He says he can't work on our relationship and needs space (more?) until it is over. And if he doesn't get his daugher then we won't have a relationship. This is tearing me up on many levels. I want him to have his daughter in his life and I want to have a life with him/them too. I really feel like I am getting shit on. I know he has a lot to deal with, how can I help him and how can I help me? We went to counseling together, but he feels that it has hurt him getting his kid back because it is a distraction. please help.
