I told my husband I'm on strike yesterday.
What's funny is, he hasn't asked why.
I'm continuing to do things for his mother, and myself, but not for him. He's capable of doing things for himself and while I *could* continue to do things for him, I need to make time for me.
The easiest way to do that is to shift the time that I was taking to do for him (his laundry, reminding him to do things, etc.) and shift that to my studies and my health.
I'm feeling guilty, but I know that if I don't do something things won't change. I need more time for studies, and I'm getting less, even though he's unemployed right now.
The cleaning I'm going to have to do (he doesn't see (or worse smell) what needs to be done, but I'll live with his laundry piling up...at least for awhile...and spend as much time at school studying as I can.
