hello, my husband after starting a new job less than a month ago has been fired (and it was through his own fault), and has been like a crazy person every since. His mood swings, and while he has always done this, it’s really extreme. He is acting like a crazy person threatening this and that.
Now he says he doesn’t want to work at all and I should have been more smarter or whatever so I could support him and he’s not gonna work. He wants to stay home and watch our son - yeah, right, that’s not going to happen - It’s sad because he’s his father and while often he is a good one, for those reasons above, I don’t like him with our son all day like that. I mean, last time he watched him, my son didn’t go to bed till dinner time, wouldn’t sleep that night and was horriably cranky for the babysitter the next day. Yesterday my husband said he would watch our son because he was sick but when I took him in the morning to the bedroom, he said take him to daycare and I’ll get him later. I thought by that time I better stay home with my son and take care of him - heck I was already late at this point and had no time to take him to daycare because of this!
He is very serious with his threats. He wants a divorce or a trip for years and then to come back if he feels like it which he may or may not, or he can stay a while here and not work -it’s on me. I am sick to my stomach. I admit I make mistakes and forget things and don’t do things the way he “wants” and feel badly for them, but I can’t stand this.
I can’t stand his tantrums and threats, but I can’t stand losing him either - what to do? Please Pray
