This has to be a frustrating and distressing. Surely marriage counselling should be in order --- surely your husband can and should play a part in caring for your child, and in enabling you both to have some time for yourself, but some time for both of you to spend together. ow absurd to make you feel bad because he is the sole money-earner , when the reason for this is so obvious --- and does't he think of how much more it would cost him if you went back to work, and he had to hire someone to care for your child all the time ?
Can you discuss this with his family, as well as yours ?
Explore alternatives, and don't believe his claim that if you separate or divorce that you wouldn't see your child again. (a) he would be very highly unlikely to get custody if the facts were presented to the court of how thoroughly you care for the child and how he neglects both of you, and (b) even in the bizarre event that he did get custody, no court would deny you generous access. And of course, he would, if he did get custody, soon discover how much it would cost him to try to replace you with someone to help the child.
Do discuss this with the doctor, and comsider arranging to see a counsellor, at least. If you are Depressed, antidepressant medication might also help, but I suspect that the counselling would be the most important thing
