I have been married for 17 years and have 6 kids. For the most part I am happy but about a year and a half ago my wife talked about wanting another baby. Financially we were fine to do so, but to be honest I really didn't want anymore because even though my wife is 8 years younger than me, I am 44 years old and decided to go back to school and have other things I would like to do without having to watch another baby. When I told her this she said ok but I knew it bothered her. I wanted to make her happy even though I knew it would make me miserable. So I read up on how to lower my sperm count and tried everything I could to not get her pregnant but with my track record I knew the inevitable would come soon. She got pregnant and don't get me wrong I love all of my kids with all of my heart, but now I have so much stress, chest pains and anxiety and even some very minor suicidal thoughts from time to time. I have talked to her about my feelings but honestly I really don't think she is listening and just wanted what she wanted and got it. She recently got promoted and so now I am a full time student and a stay at home dad with major stress issues, chronic upset stomach, head aches and other issue. Someone please give me some advice if you are anywhere remotely in my my shoes.
