What are the specific losses you are grieving?

I seriously gasped reading this. Oh my gosh. You’re not failing as a housewife!!! You’re being set up to fail! Holy hell. Maybe I’m just amped up from having watched Dirty John the Betty Broderick story, but I’m like oh man some husbands just don’t give a DAMN about anything but themselves.

He has abandoned you. He is keeping you in limbo on purpose, whether consciously or subconsciously. Don’t buy his narrative that you’re not doing enough. You’re HUMAN. If he were half the person you are, he would be there with you dealing with his own family.

Oh my gosh, I am seeing red on your behalf. My goodness. He’s asking from you max capacity physical and emotional labor. NO.

Sending you hug!
