Well...he laughed at you because he is conceded about being a therapist. Do you see how being a therapist makes him righteous? His problem of trying to control things is what drove him to be a therapist...so that he can laugh in the face of anyone that tries to tell him he has a problem...afterall...how can HE have a problem if HE is a therapist?
The fact that he is unconcerned about your well being is pretty scary. My wife has absolutely no empathy, and if she does its usually strings attached and a way to manipulate me.
Do you feel that sometimes he competes with your sicknesses? My wife absolutely gets jealous when I'm sick, I even caught her chatting up some guy online once when I had pneumonia and was bed ridden, telling the guy that SHE had pneumonia. WTF?
The worst part of it is, no one listens to me except my family...but thats like preaching to the quire.
I'm much younger than you, but something my brother told me scared the crap out of me. He asked me what would happen if I was in an accident and ended up in the hospital with no arms or legs...who would care? Would she? Because I know my wife so well, and because I'm very familiar to how she reacts to my sicknesses or injuries....I know she would not be there for me. Maybe for a few months but she would just move on to the next jerk that gave her attention.
Honestly, I think its time to move on....you might have cancer! Ever seen Y tu mama Tambien? Or the Bucket List? Life is too short. Your kids will be fine, make sure to get a lawyer, you can start now and decide to follow through later. Its never too late. I bet you remember thinking about leaving years ago...
