| | Re: and now... menopause...
Thank you for the responses, ladies.
Sometimes it just seems like we'll be getting our feet under us and then some other turmoil hits and one of us or the other is back to square one. Almost like Madame Fate is trying to tell us something....
For me, it's a difficult path to walk between patience and righteousness.
@Mary35, That's quite all right. That's precisely why I chose 'Voyager' as a user name. I've come to look at life as a journey and I've often felt buffeted by rough seas the past year. I swear I'm going to get a tattoo of a compass rose and a sailing ship on my chest so that each morning when I see myself in the mirror I'm reminded to check my bearings in life and see where I'm at.
@Magnoliagal: Oh, gosh, thing is my wife is so distant from her emotions. I'm afraid I won't know if the fog is lifting or if it's menopause talking. Maybe a bit more emotional expression on her part (whatever the reason) will be a good thing. I'm not too sure how much undeserved anger I'm willing to tolerate, though. Some days are good. Some, not so much.
@Sparkles422: Thanks. I don't know if I'm doing the right thing or not, to be honest. I think I'm finally on firm ground for my own emotional health but I'm never sure where she is or where WE are going.
Well, whoever said life was easy?
