And yes I do carry the lions share of everything in our marriage, sometimes I get resentful of it, because he wasn't one to help out much before all the back problems...... I keep trying to be understanding, but sometimes I just blow up. I have to do everything for my family and the only thing I really ask for, the one thing I felt like he could still do to contribute (other then being there for the kids emotionally) is keeping our sex life going..... It all just seems like a mess right now.
I know there are two sides to every story and right now we only know your side but from what I have read your husband needs a huge wake up call. I donít care if he has health problems he needs to do more if he wants to be part of a family. All relationships are a two way street. I donít know your husband but he sounds like he is milking this back problem thing to the full extreme.
