My husband is not working. He collects EI.It's not a financial problem yet. I would be happy if he was productive around the house. There are things to do: install our brand new water softener sitting in the basement for 2 years, organize the garage (started), tidy up his office (started), steam clean the carpets & furniture (we have a cleaner). I am at my wits end because he doesn't want lists. He just sits in front of his computer. I sense he's depressed but he doesn't talk about his feelings to me, which makes me madder and more resentful and bitter. His cat died in August and he's pretty sad about our buddy being gone. He's had a day or two of not feeling well. I'm understanding. I try not to nag but........ He's Italian and communicates well about everything else, but not this. I'm turning into a person I don't like. Anyone have advise how we can compromise, negotiate, communicate better? After 20 years, it's still an f-ing struggle. Help me!
