hello, im new to the group. my name is brandy, i am 19, (but mature for my age) Im 30 weeks pregnant, i moved to NH from PA a year ago, got married and now expecting a baby boy. Things in my life have never been easy to deal with, but i feel like im getting an over load of bad news lately. My family lives in PA, so i dont see them as often as i like, however my great aunt just died, my mothers fioncee killed himself 2 weeks ago, and my grandfather is recovering from a heart attack and quadruple bypass surgery. those are the main stressors in my life, feeling and that i cant be there every minute something goes wrong with my family and worrying that my mom might kill herself because of the trauma she just went through and now feeling alone. Aside from that i have other stressors that dont seem as great but still have a big impact on me, such as... my husband works but im currently a house wife, and i feel bad every time he tells me he cant do it alone, i know he cant but no one will hire me now because im due in 10 weeks, and i do plan to find a job a little while after the babys born. I mainly manage all our house bills except for the rent, which is my husbands responsibly. I left rent up to my husband because hes refusing to pay it due to the fact that our apartment is falling apart, our ceilings have mold in them and all our doors dont shut due to the swelling, and our front door has major cracks and holes in it. my husband hasnt paid rent for 2 months. our landlord hasnt fixed anything, although we have asked, and now he sent a family member to collect rent and my husband asked for things to be fixed and they said it wasnt up to them its up to the landlord, but he wont return our phone calls. Along with that we have 3 female cats that arent spayed and now are getting their periods, im trying to contact a low income place to help with the cost, but my husband doesnt help me locate any of these places. (since hes lived here his whole life and i just moved here a year ago and havent really left my home since) and now our cats have fleas,w e need to bomb the house and give the cats flea treatment and so on. we also want to move, but every available place is either too expensive or doesnt allow pets. all this has happened with in 2 months. im so stressed i feel like i cant breath, like im going to have a mental break down, and my husband doesnt seem to understand, he just tells me im over reacting and to 'chill'. how do you deal witht the stress in your life, when you feel like its hitting you all at once.
