Right now I am feeling somewhat depressed. I'm under a lot of job stress but more importantly my son has been staying primarily with his dad for close to 2 weeks. I miss him!!!! I have primary custody and my son asked to spend this time with his father after having a meltdown on old years night. His father basically wasn't paying attention to him as he was focused on his gf and her kids. I stepped in, spoke with his dad and asked him to spend more one on one time with him, which he has. The only issue is his father has done this repeatedly before in past relationships and if the trend continues, it's only a matter of time before he starts giving him less and less attention. Then I have to clean things up again. I miss my child and I feel angry that his father keeps doing these things. I'm also mad at myself and conflicted on whether I am doing the right thing. Shouldn't I stop this cycle? I feel depressed about this situation and lost on how to cope with it.
