My DH's new job is killing me. I have 5 (9 yrs. to 2 yrs.) Fought long and hard to get my depression under control. I know we need the money. I've tried to talk to him about this, but he gets defensive or waives off my feelings with a cliche. He loves his job. I feel like I'm slowing dying being all on my own 24/7 with 5 kids. For the last 10 years, he came home every night for dinner. Now it's just weekends. I don't know how long I can do this. We're supposed to move away from my family too. Need bigger home and our area is far too expensive. Plus, my super close (kind of too enmeshed family) really causes strain in our marriage. But I can barely make it mentally and emotionally as things are now. How can I do this all on my own, 2 hours away from those who help and support me the most? Love DH, but he's more on the selfish, controlling side. I'm lost. PLEASE HELP
