My DH works away interstate and overseas a lot. He told me this morning before leaving for interstate, that he hates it when I send him texts telling him that our boys are sick, or that DS2 woke up at 4:30am, or that I have had a bad night/day. He said that he doesn't need to know that stuff and that he feels that I am basically saying that he should be there to help me and that it makes him feel bad. I now feel like I can't tell him anything. He sends me texts saying stuff like 'I hope you had a good night last night' etc, but now I feel like I can't even say anything to him. I don't have anyone else to vent to. He's my husband and I feel like I've been told to suck it up and keep it to myself.
For people who have DHs/DPs that work away a lot - do you tell them when your kids are sick or being difficult?
