Re: Just tired of being tired

I know how you feel about wanting a husband hold you and tell you everything will be ok ... mine doesn't do that either. He would beg to differ but I know he doesn't. Hugging usually leads to him getting aroused and then well you know! I wish they would go thru a menopause look it even has men in the word. Too bad their man thing doesn't shrivel up and fall offf after child bearing years! That would have saved us women a lot of heartache ;0

Ugh, I know I will pay for this outing later on, but it's gotta be worth it, and we gotta start going out eventually to get used to going back to "normal" whatever that is, right? I have one place to go each day now it seems: today: shower, tomorrow: church, Monday: dentist for filling, Tuesday: interview for job. I'm sure just doing each activity will result in napping big time once back home, but I just hope I can not cry once out of the house.

Am I wrong to think if I had husbands support I would feel ok about crying and gosh, I sit here and cry some more just wishing I had the kind of husband who would hold me and comfort me/let me cry-ugh.

Oh well, I gotta go shower as being picked up soon-thanks so much for the support-does this 3 week sadness and boredom suddenly end at week 4 by any chance???

How long is feeling this way a sign or how long is "normal"?????
Hey Kathy -

Falling apart is normal, but I think you will be fine. I find that once I leave the house, my mood improves. In fact, as a chronic sufferer of depression, that's part of the therapy. Sometimes the hardest part is getting ready and out the door.

I'm sorry you are not getting the support from your husband you would like - trust me, I know what that's like. I have an ex who couldn't even give me a hug or condolences when my grandmother died. A lot of guys are uncomfortable with showing emotion and the whole comforting thing, but like I wrote elsewhere, he must have some good qualities since you married him.

I hate to break it to you, but there's no magic end date for the emotional roller coaster - it just kind of slows down until comes to a gradual 'stop' - usually. If it doesn't seem to ease up soon, I would discuss it with my doctor. A short term pharmaceutical intervention might be necessary to get you back to your old self.

Wishing you all the best!

Oh my gosh, that is FABULOUS!!!

My xh was the same kind of man, I remember the day I knew I wanted a better life for myself was one Christmas coming home from the hospital where I had visited my mom. She had life-threatening pneumonia, it was a very scary time. xh stayed home and when I walked in the door, exhausted that night, he was literally gnawing at a turkey leg bone over the kitchen sink and growling at me, "LOOK how I had to spend my Christmas!". Like an insane caveman! Despite 13 years together, I knew I deserved better and at the very least could treat myself better and have a more peaceful life on my own than with him. Two years later I married a sensitive, affectionate and very loving man who has only gotten moreso over the past 15 years. Real men really are out there, ladies, don't settle for less in this one-time chance at life!

In the meantime, that is why there are girlfriends and hyster sisters (and chocolate)!!!
