My boyfriend has stayed up all night for three nights in a row. He'll come home from a 12+ hour shift in a physically demanding factory job and then spend every second from the time he comes home to the time he goes back to work playing online video games. He makes really good money and says that because of this, he should be able to do what he wants. He'll go all week without sleep and crash on weekends, spending the ENTIRE weekend sleeping. I grew up with a lot of siblings and it's hard for me to sleep alone. He's known that since before we got together. I've been taking sleeping pills just to get a few hours of sleep but I'm still tired all the time. I feel lonely and disappointed that he would put a game before his own health. I'm also a little jealous that he speaks to his online friends more than he's spoken to me through our entire relationship. I've tried reasoning with him, begging, and yelling. He doesn't care because he's still able to function and he's still paying all the bills. I'm just getting sick of being alone every night. We've been together for 2 and a half years and living together for a few months. We were only just able to get internet where we live this month and it's been a problem ever since. Do I have a right to be upset if he's still working and bringing home the majority of our income?
