Hi I am new here and finding life a real struggle.
My husband is really hard on me all the time, I get zero affection it's all just business. For example today Sunday morning I get an email from him telling me we prob can't afford tennis lessons for our DD10 it's around $15 per lesson so not a lot really. He has a high paying corporate job and up until this year both our DDs did plenty of activities but this year he has been so hard on me re car trips, kids activities etc we never go out for dinner or get take away or outings for the family anymore. Now Sunday morning is for coffee reading the paper relaxing with family & friends trying to distress for one day. But my husband sends me email like you can't expect us to afford lessons for tennis it's too much - when both girls only do one thing - on a Sunday - he sends me expense emails every few days questioning all spending it's exhausting.
Right then on top of this dealing with a very rude DD13 who keeps telling me to leave her Dad as she hates him? He is very strict and doesn't really spend time with her - he doesn't like her and she knows it. I have worked really hard to keep her on the right track with school etc as she was very ill last year.
She had a one day suspension last week which I didn't tell her father as I was worried about how he would react as he is very controlling.
Now she threatens me that she will tell him if I don't do what she wants. I stood my ground but finding her exhausting!
I am also coping with my Parents - my Dad who is very ill so cannot drive so I take him to all his appointments which is multiple every week plus doing all there shopping it's all taking its toll on me. I am finding myself getting really down with no siblings or friends to talk to it's getting on top of me. Feel like I am having a break down.
