I haven't posted in Bub Hub for a while. I was posting in a TTC diary, but I have had to abandon that because my DH has some sort of mental health issues. Now I'm looking for advice. DH has episodes of not making sense and then afterwards saying he doesn't remember what happened. It often happens around other stressful events like exam time (he's studying part time). He's been to the GP several times at my insistence but always seems to come back with the same general advice to stress less and sleep more. Both of which he doesn't manage to do for very long.
Without my DH getting any specialist advice, I don't feel like the issues are being addressed properly and are likely to be getting worse. What can I do? I feel like I'm been forced into watching him deteriorate while he ignores the issue.
... Also I need a place to get mad and feel sorry for myself too, so please let me vent, this next part is really just me being a b!tch... So my SIL announced last year that her and her DH were going to TTC their 3rd child this year at the same time me and my DH were also TTC our #3. I didn't share our decision, I felt that was private. Plus we struggled to conceive DS1, and I didn't want any extra pressure. I did conceive but had a M/C last year. Now with DH's mental health issues we've made the decision to stop TTC, which makes my heart ache. But I have to do what is best for the family I already have. Now, as feared, this week my SIL announced she is UTD. (5 weeks today, brave girl announcing it to everyone so early!) And I should be nearly 5 months pregnant by now. But I'm not. And I probably won't ever be again. And she is. And I hate her for it. I hate that I'll have to be happy for her, be around a pregnancy and be sympathetic to all the whinging about her sore back, her big boobs, her tough life... blah blah blah. Due to other unrelated family issues, I think she's a two faced gossip. And a lazy parent. And now she gets a baby and I don't. I hate her!!!!
Ok, rant over... any help with my DH's mental health issues would be greatly appreciated. Please ignore my nastiness about my SIL.
