I've had a pretty tough few days. I am on holiday with DP and 2 lovely DC but the last 3 days have been very difficult with DP. No rows as such but he's chosen to do nothing but work, pretty much ignoring me and paying minimal attention to the kids.

The kids and I have had a nice time (without him) but it is not what I thought it would be like and eldest DC is pretty upset about her dad's behaviour too. It seems like he is choosing to just work (or pretend to) so he can avoid us (and me in particular). He claims I am being paranoid etc etc.

What would you do to cheer yourself up if you were in this situation? i have had wine but too much will make me maudlin. I am fed up with feeling scared and worried (and if I am honest pretty lonely).

I don't think this is a mh issue: more a relationship one. Sounds really hard. Try the relationship board, their very helpful.

I think what would cheer me up was knowing this is the last holiday you will spend together. sad

sorry, just wanted to pop back and say thanks for responding. There is a relationship issue here, quite a big one, but really not one I can fix except by breaking up with my DP and I really don't want to go there. The relationship might be failing anyway but I don't want to be the one to put the nail in the coffin.
