Tonight is a very difficult night. My bf and I are at the brink of breaking up. I'm unable to keep working on the relationship this way. It's hard as it is to have a relationship with someone who's away for work so much. Add it with a future MIL who isn't happy about me being his gf. Add in Alzheimer's. I love him but I am unable to carry this load alone, when he tells me to "deal with it". He doesn't understand why I can't ignore her. How could I when it's put in my face each and every time? Cried all evening, this isn't the first time... but the worst so far. I need a shoulder to lean on but he's not able to provide me that. So tired and exhausted.
