Is it ok to be so pissed off by DH, and to be really irritated by him.

We're moving abroad, and I guess things that have alwasy been little annoyances have now been magnified by stress. He just seems so bloody selfish, and tonight I got so angry with him when he started mentioning how hard he has to work, blahblahblah, meanwhile he has no idea how hard it is to work (PT), keep a house going, keep a DS going and making most of the decisions about DS and everybody's emotional wellbeing. Sometimes I just want to run away and, uh, hide/be irresponsible/go on mum-and-wife-strike and lie in bed with a book for a whole day, with loads of junk food, and worry about fuckall.

I'm not going to end here with a disclaimer about how much I love him because that is obvious - I'm still here, aren't I - and I did choose him then and still do.

Vent over, glass of spritzer waiting

Yes it is okay to be pissed off with him. He sounds just like mine. Works hard and needs to relax after work....so do I but that doesn't seem to register.
Men can be so bloody selfish.
I feel like doing the same...stay in bed all day and do sod all.

Oh God, me too. I have a 4 day a week job plus a new business I'm running and deal with all the household stuff and a toddler (please don't start on how he should do half, I know, but it's complicated & this probably isn't the right thread for all that)

Anyway, yes, he works long hours, yes, his job is awful, yes, he's tired. I make allowances for all that, but do sometimes wish he could realise that I might be tired too.

Vento over too. Am having more than a spritzer. And breathe......
