Re: seperating from my baby
It's hard enough to go back to work and leave your baby when you like your job. I struggled with that for so long, and I really did like the job I had at the time. I know it must be frustrating knowing you have to go back to a job that you dislike. It sounds like you husband maybe isn't really taking your true feelings into consideration. It also sounds like you have already tried to talk with him about this openly and honestly.
I don't know the answer to your problem, but I would ask this- is there any way you could work things out with your employer to maybe work part of your hours at the office, and then part of them at home? I don't know what line of work you are in, but some employers are willing to work a flexible hours plan out with new moms. This is the only thing I can come up with, I'm sorry if it's grasping at straws.
I do wish you the very best sweetie. It sounds like you are a good mommie who really wants to do the best thing for your baby. No one can fault you for the way you are feeling right now.
You could also do a job search through your local Employment Security Commission at home on-line. My sister did this, and they allow you to apply on-line, so you don't actually miss work while going place to place to apply. You just miss time when you are called for an interview. Might be another option for you as well?
