Fed up of being main breadwinner.

I am 35 with 1 9yo DS. My OH is self employed and works 9-2.30 so he can do the school run. I am main bread winner and am in a job I hate! I pay all of the household bills and would give anything for it to be the other way round.

I know OH would switch it around in a flash if he could. I just don't know what to do. Or how to change and be able to make it work. The stress of it all is making me ill though!

Any advice?

Can't your dh go full time and you drop to part time or change your job?

Have you tried looking for another job?

Would you still need to work FT if your OH upped his hours to FT?

Is the fact that you pay all the house hold bills a bone of contention?

flowers, because doing anything FT that you hate & is making you ill is really shit.

What exactly is the cause of the stress?

What is it that you hate about your job?

Can't you find another job that you don't hate? I'm not sure it's fair to sort of blame your OH for you hating your job?
