Anxiety is his middle name

Saturday, December 08, 2012

Good morning, I am back to SP again. We are still having computer intermittent problems. My DH has not been able to pin point it. I have gained 5 lbs since my DH has been home weekly. He is so much stress. He is not an easy person to live with or even enjoy any more. We went to NYC this weekend. His idea and a good one but we are looking at the Christmas Tree in Rockefeller Center and says lets rearrange the furniture in the house and buy another couch. I say what! I know it might be the change for him but I am getting worn out even though I exercise at a minimum of 5x a week. He is not a happy person any more. I think he is going through the change. He walks around with this face - even my DD says is dad mad about something. DS is coming home this weekend. His GF is in her 6th month - still fainting. Dr says it might be her heart. I am hoping we find out more this weekend. She will not be here but he will. Adrienne is speed crawling and doing patty cake on Skype for me. emoticon Have a good day!! emoticon

    g9ood to see you back on line, I am not as faithful as I once was, so very busy, and not felt well for ages, sorry to hear your DH is being contrary, hope he snaps out of it soon, I love Christmas, but find it to be the most unsettling time of the year, we want it to be the very very most wonderful time ever and it seldom is,
    dont let yourself get back on that weight gain merry go round, I think I have got a handle on mine, but now to get back where I want to be, that is the problem,

    I went through something similar with my husband last year. I finally talked to his physician about prescribing anti-anxiety medication. He began taking that and is much more pleasant to live with, both for himself and for me. He always worried about things, but it had become so bad that I couldn't deal with it. Of course, a thorough checkup should precede the medication. Do not assume it is due to the situation change. It may not be.

    I don't know your situation, but assume you were affected by the hurricane? Different people process tragedy differently and sometimes in life-changing ways. Plus, men DO go through mid-life changes even though women are the ones written about due to menopause. Sounds like you will be rolling with the changes for awhile.

    There's only so much you can do for him, you know that. Does he need a check-up? Good for you for going to the gym for yourself. I know that when my husband gets cranky, I pray for him (and "Lord, DO something with that man" doesn't count emoticon ) and I remind him that I'm his wife and we're a team to work through anything. It usually works (I think the praying has more to do with it, because he's so darn stubborn only God can help him some-ok most-days emoticon ) but he is amazing and I love him. I will pray you and your family have a healthy, happy holiday season!

    Oh boy. I keep telling my DH that he can retire when he's about 90 and @ that, he'll have to be a WalMart greeter. He just needs to be busy 24/7.

    I have energy . . . and tons more than I ever did before joining SP, but I do not have a need to be busy 24/7!

    Wishing your son's GF all the best. What a worry! HUGS to you, my dear.
