Been really snappy of late but at 5.30am this morning I saw the light. I get annoyed with DH because I feel like I’m ignored all the time and it’s the little things that build up to something big resulting in something relatively insignificant being the final straw.

I get annoyed with my Mum because when I visit now, the total visit is concentrated around the kids, DD in particular, and I feel ignored. This was apparent yesterday because when DD was asleep and DS was feeding then I finally got to have a conversation without having to shout to be heard.

Because these two relationships are the ones which traditionally I rely on the most for love and support are compromised, then I feel hard done by as I have no-one else to turn to.

If I was at work and knew the best way to do something but was continually ignored, I’d end up feeling worthless and lose confidence. Similarly, in a ‘job’ if you were told several times how to do something but continually got it wrong you’d be kicked up the butt for it.

Anyone feel the same or am I havering?

no I think thats pretty accurate. I'm the invisible woman some days and it bugs the hell out of me (ffs can't people remember that the world revolves round me?!). Drives me insane when DH (who is home all the time) tells me how to look after DS even though rationally I know he probably does have a point.
