I'm at the end of his retired rope!
by Another Anonymous
Husband's company went bankrupt so he got early retirement at the age of 64 while I was dreading it at 66! He is lost and looks at me like his playmate.
I take care of everything at home, always did, all my responsibilities are still here while his aren't and he resents me for anything I do ... Cleaning, washing clothes, writing checks, you name it, it's always a nasty comment. Only thing he wants to do is food shop. He used to pay the bills until I got a notice the house taxes weren't paid. Why you ask because he was gambling the money away. He's sloppy, lazy, moody and making my life miserable. He always tells me he feels alone in the world and blames me for everything.
He uses an inhaler for his COPD and then goes outside to smoke. He's a mess and won't listen to anything I try to tell him. Kept telling him he needs something to do he's supposedly looking for a job but no luck so far. That might be the only thing that can save us fingers crossed here!
