I've only been remarried for 2 years. My dad was diagnosed with dementia during that time. My husband could help me out a whole lot more than what he does. I have to pay sitters (which is draining me) if I am to continue working, I must have them. My husband (who I believe is Bipolar) decides he wants to start back gambling. Mind you now, he hasn't done this in years. His life had changed and he was living for the Lord doing real good. BUT now, he comes in later, sometimes the next morning or day. Hanging back with the same crowd. Gambling money away like its nothing, when he knows I need help with the sitters. He gives me money once a month to help out but always seem to manage to come back and ask for some of that back for gas, hair cut, just to name a couple.
When his mom was sick/later died (before we wed) I was always there for him. And when his dad got sick/later died (after we wed), I was there for him. I know gambling is a disease but I feel like he doesn't love me anymore. I feel like he is not attracted to me anymore (sex is a thing of the past), if I ask him a question, he answers as if he is angry. Is he mad at me, my dad, himself, or all three? We are not getting any younger but sometimes I feel like I made a mistake in marrying him. BTW, he has this new friend at work of whom I will just call Bro who I think has been influencing him. Card games are ALWAYS at his house. Bro always loaning him money. Help, I feel so alone in this. I am so stressed, my eczema flares up from time to time, my health is not the best. Oh yeah, my sibling is sick as well so I literally have NO help. What's your advice?
