Janice did not know what to do, she was tired of her husband. Boris was not helping out in any way and she did not like it. They had agreed together not to get a house help. What she did not know was that Boris had no plans in helping her around the house. 

She did not want to talk about it because she thought he would have enough sense to help out which he never did. When she got tired of Boris not helping out around the house, she had to speak out. To her dismay, her husband did not believe in helping out around the house, he thought it was a woman’s job. 

Jane was so confused because it seemed as though this particular ideology her husband had was deeply rooted in his mindset. Jane tried live with it but she could not because of the stress of handling her one-year-old child, as a career woman, her tasking job, making sure the homefront was clean enough to come back to and preparing meals for her husband. All these left her worn out, she could not turn up in bed with much vigour to perform her marital duties like before.

Boris was complaining bitterly about how she was so unkempt, not looking fresh, wonderful, sexy and how her performance in bed was low. Jane felt like she was going out of her mind. Every day was like she was hanging by a thread. She decided to seek the help of a therapist because she felt like she was going mad.

Without conducting much research, she got a low-priced therapist and that turned out to be her worst mistake. Jane slipped into a depression after meeting the therapist. The so-called therapist supported her husband over her and told Jane to continue handling everything by herself. It was more like a judgement section rather than a therapy session. Jane had never felt so low in her life.
