I\'m expecting my first child and things aren\'t going well with my boyfriend. We rushed into things and now we have a lot of problems. He came out of a four year relationship where his ex broke his heart and now he has attachment issues towards me and the baby. He doesn\'t know if he can give himself to me emotionally. He has also kept himself from getting attached to his son that I\'m carrying. He told me he doesn\'t know how to raise a son because he never had a father. I\'ve also got a lot of problems of my own, including insecurities,jealousy and I tend to be really selfish. My boyfriend tells me he can\'t deal with my depression (which has been horrible since pregnancy) because he has so much going on himself. He thinks we should take a break and that we should go where we want to go without questioning eachother. The thing is, I don\'t have many friends and he knows that. So what should I do? He went out tonight and is doing whatever and staying the night out. I have no car due to someone hitting me and he left anyway. He tells me he wants to marry me and has bought the ring, yet the ring has sat in the box for almost a year. How do I fix things between us and make him realize what he has and make him get rid of his attachment issues? How do I get him to appreciate I\'m giving him a son? If anyone has any comments please post... I need all the help I can get.

I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
