I'm back to work with my BW looking after our DD and newborn DS. With them being on different sleep schedules, my BW isn't getting much sleep at all. I'm trying the best I can by getting up early with our DS and letting my BW sleep a few hours before I go to work.
My problem is that my BE is getting very stressed. No sleep, she can't focus all of her attention to our DS which upsets her, and of course the A. All if this is causing me great stress. I feel I'm not doing enough for her and the family. I want to talk to her and get her more at ease but we really haven't spent much time with each other. Family is helping but there is only so much they can do. I can't take time off as I just came back to work from a month off.
I'm trying to show my BW I care. I'm trying to show her I'm there for her but feel I'm failing. The A makes this all worse. It's hard enough dealing with this but the added A makes things that much worse. I feel she thinks that because I'm having difficulty with what's going on now that I'm going to deal with it by having an A. I've reassured her numerous times I've worked on my issues and this won't happen again. I just want to be there for her but since I'm not independently wealthy I need to work. Arghhh.
