No life of my own
I have an 11 yr old son. He is my second child 20 yrs apart. He is my husbands only child. He has always been a hand full since he was born. Colic, wouldn't sleep, hard to breast feed. Don't get me wrong he has been a loving and fun child as well. During the first 8 years my husband has either worked nights or away from where we were living. When he would be home, he basically ignored him. Sleeping or spending most of his time on the computer.
I've tried to maintain the relationship so my son has a father. Now I'm not sure that was the right thing to do. My son is making F's in his school. He has adopted his fathers love of computers and playing games. I'm left with taking care of the house, cooking, bills, anything my son needs and no life. My son has run away twice because I get upset about his grades. I have him in counseling he is depressed and mad.
Now about my older son.....he is taking advantage too. I let him rent a house I own. He promised he was never getting back with his girlfriend that he has had a very bad relationship with and one condition was that she could never move into the house with him. Well she did. He also had lost his job after a year of living there. I paid most of the bills for 5 months and he now has a job and only pays enough to cover the utilities...no rent.
I will be truthful....I want to run away. I had a back fusion last year and still have nerve damage and can not work yet. I feel trapped.
