Anyone else get this feeling from partners?

Due to multiple issues, MH, brain injury and bad accident, I was told/advised that I would probably not be able to work again.

Only a pup me, 51.

But slowly, as my wife works full time shifts, you get the feeling, they are daft way jealous? That you no longer work. May sound, daft, but, more time goes on, more noticeable it is.

Must be daft, wanting stuck at home

Hi there.

I doubt it's jealosy in the sense you're meaning,most people don't want to be stuck at home.Its probably more like she feels she's doing so much and taking on such a full load that not having to do that might seem nice.

Seems like a thing you should discuss with your wife. if you cant work its not your fault. it does not mean you can help in other ways. i am sure a relationship is a team thing right?

Maybe yes talk over, but my illness over past years, has taken its toll, and I know she is struggling.

I didn't anything by it, just over thinking, stuck in, all day. And help other ways, I wish I could. Things like that depress me..

Am a decent guy. Ask my pups :)
