I feel like everything keeps going downhill and I'm the only one trying

by Tania

I'm not sure where to begin but I need to vent before I have a break down .

My husband is Punjabi Indian and is an OTR truck driver. I have no problem with him being a truck driver because he was already working when I met him.

The problem is even after years of trying to fit into his culture I still feel left out. he goes and meets up with his extended family or friends but never mentions about going together.

Even though he is a truck driver I am still working because I feel the need to because my husband does not provide for our family without me asking or reminding him multiple times which makes me feel uncomfortable like if I was begging.

I mean common sense would be to deposit money in our shared account for home needs or bills but I feel he never thinks that way. keeping in mind we have 3 kids and the youngest being 3 months I had to return to work and it just makes me hate him more because I was not able to stay home.

I enjoyed breastfeeding, but now I have to stop because I don't produce the same all because I feel he just leaves and forgets about us. I'm tired of stressing about the kids, bills to pay, having to work and still be a wife and mother

He comes home just to make me more mess and if I ask for help he acts like if I offended him
a little appreciation for everything I do would be great but I just feel everything keeps going downhill and I'm tired of feeling like the only one trying.

What does your husband's race or nationality got to do with this? Nothing!

Everything you have mentioned, well all I can say is welcome to a trucker's wife's world! I can side with you, I would be mad as hell too if I had to stop breastfeeding, but he is being selfish and self-centered by not helping you out and leaving a mess for you to pick up.

I do not have little ones no more, mine are grown, but I would be livid if mine did what your husband is doing. Have you tried to talk to him, I know half the time talking to these guys is useless!

Good luck and I wish you well!
