You're right. He could be feeling threatened (which is probably part of what caused me to gain the weight in the first place?).
If it is the case, he needs to address that sense of whatever is making him uncomfortable, rather than lashing out at his family. He has resisted my requests to seek counseling over the years, so I am not optimistic.
Thank you for the comment on my Muttlies composite picture. It is true, by loving and tending to them I get a joyful heart and a happy soul. They give so much back unconditionally--- like warming my feet on a cold winters day! and dog hair tumbleweeds! But ya still love 'em. lol. I've also added you as a friend. Thanks for adding me. Best wishes on your Spark journey. 2188 days ago
