Marital Bliss?

It has been a very difficult few days. I feel like my antidepressant medication has been swapped for placebos. Tears have been frequent, as has lethargy and general not-giving-a-shit. Hubby is down too. Business is down both revenue and volume. The new program has not paid us a penny yet; but our expenses continue. When hubby is down he withdraws into himself, which makes it more difficult for me.

Anyway, I feel better today. I had a long talk with another guy who helped me understand the way guys think. Actually, I already understood that; but I needed a reminder because I was wallowing myself.


I'm sorry that you and your hubby are having such a rough time. Unfortunately, men do seem to have a habit of withdrawing into themselves when they have a problem -- especially when it comes to finances. I hope things start improving soon. Feel free to email me if you need to talk.
Thanks, Rusty, I appreciate the offer. I am much better now, even though there haven't been any real changes aside from my determination to get through this. Hubby and I have been together for 23 years, so we can weather this storm.
I'm glad you're feeling better. At least you know that you and your husband aren't the only ones feeling the effects of the recession. And after 23 years of marriage, I'm sure you can weather this storm. :-)
Thank you. A recession is a time of massive change and definitely a time to pull together rather than tear apart.
Hope things will clear up.

Have you been eating/drinking different stuff lately, that could have shaken your chemical balance?

Also hope that the money will be arriving soon. Have you been discussing this problem with other entrepreneurs in your line of business?
What do they do? Can you act together and have a delegation talk to the debtors/government?

Hope you will feel well soon.
When the money does come in, this will be such a landfall :)
*huggles back* Thanks. I needed that.

Nope, not eating or drinking differently at all. It could be allergies - pollen counts are through the roof right now.

We will weather the storm.

Hey, I watched an EJO movie last night: Stand and Deliver. He was so young in that movie; but they tried to make him look old.
I think I remember that one, the math teacher movie, wasn't it?

I'm not sure they tried to make Eddie old as much as make him resemble the man that he was portraying. That math teacher actually existed. I think EJO strove for verisimilitude. He is big on that.

Hope the pollen counts will be lower soon and your feeling of happiness will grow higher with it.
Yes, it was the math teacher movie. I must say I prefer him with hair. A comb-over looks horrendous on any man. The heart attack scene was quite good. He didn't just grab his chest and fall over. His portrayal was a lot more realistic than most I've seen.
