I'm gonna go on a rant now. I apologize to everyone in advance. First off, I have a 15-month old daughter that I'm raising alone with my husband (no relatives around). She has been a handful since day one and I do need breaks and to recharge my batteries, but I can't imagine not seeing her for one day (that's just me) let alone for me to be gone six weeks twice! Secondly, I am aware that I will probably have only her or be done with babies for at least 5-7 years. Why? Because I need to get my life back to semi normal at least, to get some rest and energy (baby phase is a biatch), to change careers, just find myself again - basically, give my daughter a better life and a satisfied mother that will excitingly spend time with her as she grows. On the other hand, Cate hasn't been happy and seems miserable for years now. Obviously, she isn't as fulfilled with the SAHM role like she thought she would be. Ok, so that doesn't work and for sure plays a part in her depression. Did she ask herself what would make her feel better? Has she made any effort towards that goal? (I get depression, but she's a bad advocate) Of course you feel bad when you do nothing all day - newsflash, everybody does!
My third point relates to this - so, her trauma and mental health is her storyline now. Except for basically shoving the sentence 'I was traumatized to everybody's throats and going to her spa for it, have we seen anything else? In the first episode of this season, when she was picked up, she said she was diagnosed with PTSD like she was bragging about it! Like someone said, for some people it's trendy to say that you suffer from a mental disorder these days. agree what she has experienced was trauma, but how did she overcome it besides not commiting suicide? No, really, what are her daily methods that help her? How did she survive, since it seems there's been zero work behind it. So, miserable she stays and what does she do next? Goes ahead and has another baby. Smh
And just a few words about Tyler - don't like him, but he's not dependent of Cate anymore, because of the spa and all. He is done and like someone said, he has slowly been building his exit from the marriage. Too bad that the baby is coming and good luck to both of them, they're gonna need it.
P. S. It annoys me how Cate is all 'Look at my husband, he's mine'. She doesn't just sound insecure, but since she's always talking about how hot he is and no words have been spoken about her from either sides, she always comes off to me like a 300lb heifer that is saying - look how lucky I got, I have him and I'm way out of his league. You guys will never be that lucky!
Ok, rant over, lol
