Do they fight like this in public?  If they do not then you can point out that they can indeed control their words, tone and volume and that you would appreciate if they did control themselves in front of you and your child.   Unacceptable for them to fight in front of their son growing up and now their grandchild.  It is scary for any child to witness that, dare I say, abusive.

I am sorry that this is such a hard time for you.   It sounds like you need some help. Is there anyone you can ask to come and give you a hand with the kids and house?     Can you sit your dh down and write up a list of what you need from him?  I do believe that some people just don't see/know what needs to be done.

You sound very very lonely.  Sending you a  To me it sounds like you are looking not so much for friends, but for family.  When I am sick it is my mother or sister who help with food, the house, my kids.   Is there any way you can make your family bonds stronger? I am also a big believer in therapy, I have learned so much on how to deal with my mother, to be able to take the bad with the good and have a decent relationship, especially as she is getting...
