Hello all. I've been busy working all summer and things for the most part have been calm with my bp h with the exception of one blow up he had a few weeks ago.
He did take me on a date last night, but it's so awkward. According the therapist we aren't allowed to talk about work, kids or money. Of course I blew it and started to talk about work and we talked about the kids. Whatever. It's like trying to get to know him all over again.
Anyhow, so he's gonna be home with our three kids for the next three weeks that he's on vacation. I'm soooooo dreading it because I know he's gonna lose his patience at least twice a week. I have to work and am not able to take ANY time off until December. Any suggestions for making these next three weeks less stressful on him with three kids would be appreciated.
I already have in mind to plan some "field trips" for them to different "free" places along with snacks and lunch to take along. And of course I'll be praying every minute of the day that he and the kids are ok.
We haven't been to the therapist in a few weeks because it's just been a crazy summer and all schedules are screwed up- the kids', his and mine. Once school starts back up in Sept, we'll resume our sessions. He continues taking his meds... religiously. He is bumbed about the weight gain. I keep telling him I still think he's hot.
He did share with me that he's been having dreams about me going off with some other man and leaving him and kids behind- which I WOULD NEVER EVER do- not yet :) J/K. As hard as it is dealing with his bp, I keep reassuring him that I'm sticking with him through this crummy illness and that I will support him all the way through and that I love him.
He's been trying. He did agree to go to marriage counseling. He does take his meds. He does flip out once and awhile and do let it go. He does NOT know how to apologize after he flips out.
There's somewhat of an update. Hope you all are well.
