Hello everyone thank you for reading this in advance!
So here's my story I am 26 years old. I have two young children. I have been married for 3 years now, my husband is 52 years old ( he is the father of both children) we have been together since I was 19 years old on and off. He was my boss. I have been unhappy for a while now, but it escalated after my second was born. I feel extremely stuck in my situation. I am a stay at home mom, with the kids all the time. I do everything around the house. He works constantly, drinks on a daily basis and is just not a hands on dad. He would rather stay home all the time and avoid social situations (unless I hound him to do something). I know he works hard and I appreciate that so much, but when he's home he is on his phone, or he finds other things to busy himself with. He never takes the kids anywhere by himself and he doesn't know how to play with the kids (interact). I feel like I have put my feelings on hold for so long now, I have put everyone in front of myself. Its easy to busy myself worrying about everyone else than myself. I am not attracted to my husband anymore, we act like roommates. He thinks that having another baby will make me happy. Ugh, this makes me really upset. I have asked him to go to therapy with me. He flipped out and told me he was not going and I couldn't go. I need to talk to someone. I feel alone, I feel guilty for even having these feelings, I feel like a failure. When I think about growing old with this person I feel sick to my stomach. I have no savings. I am in credit card debt and student loan debt. Am I just having a mid life crisis or something?! Are people faced with similar issues?
