Electricgooberella Wed 30-Jul-08 20:32:44

Fire away.

Have you name-changed?

SSSandy2 Wed 30-Jul-08 20:32:46

because of something that happened today or do you feel like this generally?

wrinklytum Wed 30-Jul-08 20:33:42

Oh dear

Will it help to post what is troubling you?

You've found a place here - there is always a hand for you to hold and a shoulder to cry on.

DiscoDizzy Wed 30-Jul-08 20:33:50

Why you upset

llareggub Wed 30-Jul-08 20:34:20

Why do you think you're ridiculous?

DiscoDizzy Wed 30-Jul-08 20:43:16

llareggub Wed 30-Jul-08 20:46:39

ifeellikeshit Wed 30-Jul-08 20:47:35

I have no financial independence...have no money of my own....he can go on night out but i cant buy my DD vests
how sad is this and my life

SSSandy2 Wed 30-Jul-08 20:48:11

well my guess is it will have a lot to do with a man. If you don't feel like talking about what happened, just chat and take your mind off things.

Even men who seem to ooze good qualities when you meet them turn into godzilla when things go wrong. Maybe we women do too I don't know but I certainly keep seeing and hearing about men acting like total jerks towards the mothers of their dc, as if they left every shred of decency behind them. It's a bit weird.

Sorry if it's something utterly different!

SSSandy2 Wed 30-Jul-08 20:49:10

oh sorry crossed posts. No, it doesn't sound great.

girlnextdoor Wed 30-Jul-08 20:49:58

Questions- can you get a job? Can you go back home? Why no friends?

What is within your power to control and change?

ifeellikeshit Wed 30-Jul-08 20:55:25

I could get a job but no childcare for ds 2 and dd 5 months. Also literally live in the middle of nowhere and dont drive...yes i know im a sad individual not to be able to drive but im too scared to start.
I could go home....but would probably lose dp...havent lived near my family for 10 years. Have lived here for 2 years...no friends because no one lives near here...

SSSandy2 Wed 30-Jul-08 20:56:03

Would it be possible to move to a different place in the country where you now live where you might also be able to get an interesting job?

Would dh be willing to consider that?

As far as money is concerned, have you spoken to him about it? You mention not having money to buy essentials for your dd, can some kind of agreement be reached about your access to the money or how much of it is transferred to you for various things?

Any chance of a babysitter so you and dh can go out on the town together?

Electricgooberella Wed 30-Jul-08 20:57:55

To lose your DP doesn't sound so bad actually.

ifeellikeshit Wed 30-Jul-08 21:01:16

Have spoken to him loads of times about me having child benefit etc. but he says what will i spend it on?? Errr my children!! I feel like ive totally lost control of my life. Any time DP thinks that i might be close to rocking the boat he makes an effort and then it goes back to normal....

SSSandy2 Wed 30-Jul-08 21:04:25

This doesn't sound good.

Don't know what he is thinking of really living in the back of beyond with a wife who is not given enough money and left to vegetate at home whilst he goes out having fun. How does he envisage this developping into a happy home? So I take it he isn't open to the suggestion of moving elsewhere atm.

How far away are your family? Could you and the dc go for an extended visit and would your family help you in that time (practically and financially) so you can think about it and discuss it and look into other options?

Electricgooberella Wed 30-Jul-08 21:05:58

The only way to get through to a man is to state your case and keep forcing it home.
If he doesn't love you why are you torturing yourself with this man who would let you and your children go without the most basic of things?
The welfare system will take care of you if you were on your own.

ifeellikeshit Wed 30-Jul-08 21:09:01

Funny you should suggest that but only 2nite have decided to take dc ( maybe only the baby though) home for a few days... im in ireland...family in england. I was in two minds whether to take both dc, just in case i didnt come back

ifeellikeshit Wed 30-Jul-08 21:10:52

Just dont know how i would cope on my own
