I'm with Hara; Who needs all that negativity. Of course you may be in a bind. He needs a wake-up call. How about "the week the women went", take a few days or a week and go somewhere. Tell him you are slayed by his unkind words and need to "re-evaluate". He's probably having his own mid-life crisis. Thinks a sporty car and a sporty wife will make a man of him. I'd like to "make a man of him", meet me outside buster. Inconsiderate rude, narcissistic people p--- me off. The world would be a far better place if people minded their manners and treated others with respect, kindness, and compassion. As Amanda Marshall says in her song; "everybody has a story that'll break your heart". Climb into my shoes for a bit buster.
I am glad the open letter to Normals, surfaced. Print it out, give it to him. Both of them, take a vacation. Leave him to ponder. Nobody gets out of this life alive. His day too, will come. He could easily be in your situation of much worse. Would you turn your back and critisize him if he were injured, sick, in pain. Not. Every man should have his you know what's tied in a knot with a pull cord so every time you feel pain you can just give a gentle yank. Sorry, just venting. i been happily married for twenty four years this August. We lived together for the first three. Never again, for me. I don't hate men, nor do I lump them all together as inconsiderate, insensitive or in anything. There are some mighty fine fellows out there. Unfortunately most are taken, or Gay. Gay men are kind, sensitive, and compassionate. some of the finest people I know. They are in touch with their feminine side. Gotta go, the Bro Hood is coming for me.
I am in the same situation with the medicine and weight gain as you. I know that it is hard for our family's to understand this illness but I can't believe that your husband would speak to you that way. That is total disrespect and uncalled for. If my husband spoke to me that way, things would be over pretty quickly unless he changed his tune. Your weight should not have anything to do with how he sees you. The meer fact that we are willing to take a medicine that causes weight gain just for some relief is all that any family member should need to hear for understanding. What woman wants to gain extra weight?
You need to demand some respect or things will just get worse. You are a beautiful person inside and out and no person should make you feel any less.
