I am very upset and angry about
relationship problems. Nothing new, the same problem for the last 3 years. For new folks, there is a gap between his expectations of how clean the house should be and what I am consistently
able to do. (His expectations are not too high.) I am in remission and doing well but still, it's not good enough for him. He is also my employer and it is employee review time. I am maxxed out on criticism I can receive and I am hurt and angry. He doesn't intend to be an *******, he just is acting like it.
I feel like I'm running out of coping skills. Last night I listened to comforting music until I calmed down - I was crying last night. Then I went to the gym at 1:00 a.m. when I calmed down enough to focus on something. I fell asleep on the couch about 3 a.m.
I rarely stay angry for long, but today is not going better. Partly for missing sleep, and then having some caffeine this morning when I discovered I was not going to be able to take a nap. That doesn't help! I have been cleaning. And I'm running out of things to clean, lol.
I don't deal with anger often so I don't feel like I'm good at coping with it. Does anyone have suggestions for how to deal with it?
