Guys working from home with a baby is causing me to be depressed.

I have a new very demanding job. I feel my husband is dedicated to not understanding my feelings. Having to be basically a stay at home mom with a full time job is so hard and my husband’s excuses is “well I work hard too” as if it’s the same ?????? I was telling him I NEVER get a day off and my attention is divided during the workday. A whole argument started by him wanting to play a video game after work and all I wanted to do was relax. Him being on a video game means I am the go to person when the baby cries. His solution ? If the baby needs something hell attend to it after the game ends. The game that takes 10 mins plus to finish.

You should hire help. It’s a necessity for you both at this time.

@Alnisa “girl”/ scammer whatever you are: stfu

@Alnisa reported

@Monét YES. I think for my sanity. I just wish he’d understand. You know?

You should be greatful you can be with your kids and don't work where you need to pay for child care. I'm jealous.

But I'd be pissed about the video games too.

@Rose gosh. Do you have any friends? I really hope your friends don’t come to you for any advice 😂 I say I’m struggling with my mental health and the first thing you say is “ I should be grateful?” You are exactly what is wrong with women and society as a whole to be exact. Btw never said I WAS NOT grateful did I?

It was a reminder. It helps actually. Your situation can always be worse.

@Rose you’re jealous because you can’t relate and it sounds better than your situation. It’s not better or worse

This is a post of a woman who is struggling and not only have you been less than helpful, now you’re being insulting? If you don’t have anything of value to add here, just leave. Otherwise you come off as a big troll

I'm actually a licensed therapist but youre right 😅 I have no idea what I'm talking about

@Alex I honestly don’t think ppl understand just how draining it is. Not to mention the implications of being behind at work due to having your attention divided and moving at a slower pace. Thank you ❤️ I don’t think he’ll ever understand.

@Rose this is wild coming from a single mom with an unplanned pregnancy. And no your “advice” doesn’t help 😂

@Rose there is no way in Hell you are a licensed therapist 😂😂😂 pls stop.

@Rose I'm also a therapist, and I'd recommend some re-education here. I hope you don't harm your clients like this.

@Rose where are you licensed? You really shouldn’t say silly things when someone is in a fragile mental state. Do you know what could happen to your license if some words you shared on social media had a not so happy outcome?

Your bio says you go to school for environmental science. You work a FT job in customer service, but occasionally do community work in schools? How does one “occasionally” work in CPS? And thoughout all of this, where do you use your license? In fact, explain to me what you job title is since you’re a “licensed therapist”

@Alex therapy would be a blessing but I am just not sure how I’d work that into my schedule with this new job. I’m actually considering couples therapy. *husband on board* to be fair he does his job at the house chores (on the weekends..must be nice!) if a therapist can’t help him see how hard this is for me there’s no hope for us.
