He is such a big baby. No where near the real man I thought he was. He works 5 days a week from 10:30 to 7, has it so easy managing a little sandwich shop, yet he cries constantly about how miserable he is and how he needs more sleep. I work 7:30 to 5:30. I bring the baby with me. I leave the house to go to work 3 hours before my husband does. Every day. I take care of the baby full time, the only time he gets her is an hour or two at night for cuddles yet he's sooo tired. I wish he would wake up earlier, complain less, appreciate what he has. He thinks he has it so hard but really he's one of the laziest, whiniest men I know.

Update: I went to target and got: St. John's wort, vitamin C, fish oil, men's one a day as well as melatonin. I also got some Epsom salt, a head massager and a back massager. Hopefully these, in addition to better diet exercise and communication, will help get him out of this funk.
It's not so much about being tired as always looking for sympathy. But if I could get him to go to the doctor I would send him.
Has he had a checkup by his doctor? Could he have sleep apnea, depression, even be iron deficient for pete's sake? If one of my family members was acting exhausted during the day regardless of getting sleep, I wouldn't be telling them to man up, I would be making them a doctor appointment.
I had to have a talk with my Dh about this recently. He's always sick tired or plain stressed about everything. I told him he is constantly feeling sorry for himself and its very draining on me. He was a little hurt I was basically calling him a whiny little bitch but he's trying to do better now that he knows how I feel.
Really cause it sure sounds like your crying about it on cafemom. It sounds like your marriage lacks support and communication. Bitching doesn't count as communicating. You are describing classic symptoms of depression regarding your Dh if that's the case he won't just snap out of it because you say so.
I may be at bitch but at least I get my shit done without crying about it
Maybe he suffers from depression. What a bitch, you are.
Men can't handle as much as women can. That's why we have the babies and they don't. Try and talk to him tell him how much it really bothers you and that you need more help. If he does have a problem he should tell you it's the way you communicate with him. I thought we were here to help you guys just jumped all over her like it was all her fault maybe she's overwhelmed and he's a lazy butt.
