It's been a little while since I have posted an update about me and my situation. So, here it is.
I have started taking Suboxone, which a lot of you know from my last post. It seems to be helping, but there are some pretty crappy side-effects that I am trying to get used to. They aren't a huge deal, and they will go away, but I really just want them to go away RIGHT NOW! LOL. Anyways.
We had to take my son to the ER yesterday. He has Croup (sp?). So, he is on a steroid for the next five days. Poor little guy. He already seems to be feeling a little better. I hate when my son is sick. I feel really helpless when he is sick, because there really isn't a whole lot I can do for him. But, I do my best.
My hubby is kinda getting on my nerves. He has been  really bossy recently and easily irritated and stuff. I don't know if it is because he was forced to quit his job or what. He won't really talk to me. All he does is complain about how he feels like crap. But he won't elaborate on that, and he refuses to go to the doctor. I wish he would stop complaining and just go and see his doctor. It's driving me crazy. Are all men this frustrating at times? One night, I don't know what his problem was, but he got up with our son in the middle of the night one night, and he was getting him a sippy cup. By this time, I was awake. And I saw that Alex wouldn't take his cup, and he just kept crying. Bobby got so frustrated that he slammed the cup into the crib. It could have hit Alex, but he swears that it wasn't even near him. (Umm...HELLO! I was standing right there and saw the whole thing!) Anyways. I took care of Alex, and I ended up sleeping on the couch that night. One, cause I didn't know if Bobby would snap some more, and two, I wanted to be able to get up more quickly and easily if Alex woke up again. Any time I try to talk to my hubby, he just says that he is fine. He is driving me crazy. I kind of feel like everything has to be his way or no way at all. I feel like I don't really have a say in anything. Anytime I say something, he thinks I am wrong and he is right. He is even controlling about driving. Whenever we go out together, he has to drive. If I ask to drive, he gets all sulky and stuff. Sometimes my husband's road rage is scary. I mean, I get road rage too, but I don't react nearly as badly as Bobby does.
Sorry this is so long. I'll stop for now. I could use advice and encouragment please.

Hello SAssy,

I dont know if you saw but I wrote you a post under your suboxone thread. I too have been tkaing Suboxone for over a year now. What kind of side effects are you dealing with? If it's the headaches that suboxone is known to cause their's ways to help that, like spitting out the saliva or switching to Subutex as the naloxone in the Suboxone is known to cause headaches in people who are sensitive to it, cause a VERY tiny bit does get passed through the body and alot of people cant handle the headaches it causes.

I too have a sick child, I took my son the ER today, they say he has the flu, but I'm not sure about that. I feel like it's just an easy diagnosis to get people in and out of the ER fast and I'm sure alot of people beleive them. I personally think he just has a stomach virus but as for either the only answer is time.

Well anyways, if you ever have any questions about my experience with suboxone, then let me know, I take it for pain and it has helped alot.

You must get things under control with hubby and right away! I'm sure much of it has to do with him being out of work. That is very hard on men as they see themselves at the providers. But there is no way he should be treating you, and especially Alex, like he is. Absolutely NOT! End of story. I'm guessing he has had an either a control or anger issue before Alex was even born. It doesn't seem likely he would be this bad just from lost work. More often it comes out in the form of depression, not violence.

Sweetie, do not blow this off as a single incident. Please take this from someone who not only loves you but has been through it. I made excuses for my ex for more than 20 years and he nearly choked my daughter to death just before we parted. She was 15 at the time and I should have called the police on him, but again I let him off and made more excuses.

I'm not saying your story is exactly like mine but Sassy, he does not have control over his emotions and one day it WILL go too far and either you or Alex will be the target. Please!!! do something now! There are lots of options such as talking to your doctor or family right away; moving out for a while until he gets himself into anger management classes; get to a woman's shelter if you need to; but at all costs protect you and Alex. He's an adult and Alex isn't. You are his protection..please make a call! And email me...

Children will not remember you for the material things you provided but for the feeling that you cherished them.
