    I just sent you a pm. I agree with the boundaries thing... VERY important.... just don't ever threaten to do something you're not ready to do!!!

    Not defending your husband (or mine!) but I think men really have no idea what we do, and really don't want to know. My husband does have a stressful and demanding job, but that's where it ends (except in the summer he does cut the grass once or twice a week). Every once in a while my husband actually tries to help, but doesn't have a clue what to do. He says he doesn't know what he is supposed to do, and wants me to make lists. I really hate that idea - I mean really, you want me to write down that you need to do laundry when there are loads of dirty clothes and nothing clean in the closets? Really? And you want me to write down that you need to run the dishwasher when there are dirty dishes all over the counter and nothing clean in the cupboards? Really, I guess he does. It might help you and him to write down everything you do on top of your nursing job. I mean every little thing. I'll bet he doesn't have a clue. Don't confront him, he is probably feeling depressed about his job and his self esteem is in the toilet. (NOT excusing him, but looking for possible explanation). Don't rule out counseling, either. If not for both of you, just go yourself to learn to deal with this more effectively. Sorry you are going through this. Hope it gets better!
