Stay at home mom

I have 4 kids 8,7,4,and 1. The 1 year old is attached to me all day long it's very fustrating. My husband works and feels that since he works he should not help out. He feel that I should have someone like his mom come and help. Half the time I can barely eat or go to the bathroom. He will be sitting on the chair while he sees me struggling and his answer is I have a job. I'm losing my mind mind you his mom is out of work so she's probably harassing him. I try to explain to him that I can't pee or eat and that I can't have someone the 24 hours a day he is the parent also. I don't know what to do anymore I deserve to sit on the chair also I'm not a robot. Any advice thanks

Correct him. He has two jobs. He is also a full time parent, 24 hours a day, and he spends x hours away from the house to finance his first, and most important job, as a father.
He is also a husband, and it is not okay for him to allow his wife to be without dinner, pee breaks and me-time. Remind him that you are in it together, and having a job outside the home is not superior. It is not a get out of jail free card.
Is he stressed, and over worked? Probably. But so are you, and your needs matter, too.
When I hear this, my first worry is your love life. He has the answers, ask him to arrange a sitter for a night and go on a date. Reconnect. Youre not communicating and youre not treating eachother like humans. When you go on that date, do NOT talk about kids, or the house, or work... Do something you both enjoy, and enjoy eachother.
