Thank you so much for sharing! I have never expressed this to anyone, I have close friends, close family, but if I were to tell them my life, they would hate him, and like you, I am trying preserve his reputation. So I keep it all to myself. My husband usually blames me for everything. If my car is messed up, he will ask, what did you do to it? But if he so much as spills his coffee, he will practically blame his cup! He was on medication for a while, but we lost our insurance and he will not pay to see another doctor. It did help, but he was not on it long enough to really see. I too am an optimist and I love life, thats why sometimes I think to myself what am I doing with this awful joyless person. Sometimes his depression depresses me. Again, I thank you for your response.View Thread
It is nice to have a place to vent. My problem with my husband is that I have no one to share it with. If I were to tell my friends or family, they would hate him and I don't want that, writing can be very therapeutic.View Thread
