The man I'm in love with is a great man. He is exactly what I have ever wanted.
But I'm finding that my chronic pain and just my situation in general has created a large chasm in our relationship. Yes, he does take me to the doctor and to the store, but he does nothing to help me around the house. He leaves dirty plates in the sink that he could easily rinse off and put in the dishwasher so that I don't have to bend. The laundry is left to me, the cooking, the cleaning, everything. I find myself becoming miserable because our relationship was so great before my back problem worsened. Now I feel like everything he does annoys me.
An event just before now is a perfect example. Living in Georgia, we are able to shoot in our backyard because of the amount of land that we live on. He recently bought a new gun, and believe me, I understand his excitement. I was having problems trying to get the vacuum to work and asked for his help, but he was so absorbed in shooting the gun for the first time that I got completely ignored. I'm just very angry that he couldn't see my struggle and that it got pushed to the side. I don't ask him to do much, if anything, and yet he couldn't take one minute to help me resolve my problem.
Writing this, I'm realizing more that I may be depressed.Sorry for the rant, but thanks for listening.
