Hi all.I am feeling better today. Emotionally, not physically. When I wok up today with a pounding headache, I was once again reminded of why I shouldnt drink. Anyhow, I talked to the husband this morning. He apologized, of course. He was having a bad day too. I dont know how things are going to work out. I just have to keep praying, and seriosly, NO MORE WINE!!!!Alright Laurie, big girl panties are on today, and I am back in the drivers seat. Thanks for all of your advice and prayers. You guys are really the best. Sorry if I sounded rediculous last night. Dede, please dont take offense to my comment about Marines. Im sure your dad is a great guy, I mean, he'd have to be, to have a daughter that turned out as great as you. I was just angry at MY Marine last night. He was just acting like since he IS a Marine, he was the only one with an important job. I told him this morning, that I know his job is importabt, and he does his job very wll, and I admire the fact that he gets up at 5 am almost eveyday and runs. I just felt like he was being very mean yesterday. I appreciate all of our military folks for doing what they do. I would hate to think what kind of country we'd be living in today if we didnt have em'.Soooo, there it is. I know it will all work out. Thanks for helping me with this.

Wow. Missed this whole thread last night somehow, but i'm SO glad you're doing better today, Sheila.

Hang in there, and I'm glad he apologized. I'm sure the financial stresses are weighing on BOTH of you.

Hi Sheila,
OF COURSE I didn't take offense! What I meant to say is that I had a Marine in the house for YEARS and know what that entails! I was right there with you! I love Marines, but they're a handfull!

I'm so glad you're better today! Everything will turn out for you, I KNOW IT!

Glad the week is getting better for you! Sometimes, one thing has to take a back seat so you can focus on another. NO worries. From what I have read, you have what it takes to handle it all! Sometimes it just takes some time to think about it
Don't really care as long as everything's better than yesterday was...

Sheila I just saw this thread today and I am SO glad you're doing better. Believe me, I know what its like to feel like you are powerless and that everything is crumbling around you. But like someone said before.. YOU come first.

Oh God I miss Riesling! :) Good choice.

A lot of us have gone through those kinds of stresses ... in my case, a business failure, foreclosure of our house, thoughts of suicide, death of my wife ... but all those things eventually pass and life gets better.

Just hang in there and try to make the right decisions. You'll eventually look back on all this as a learning experience that makes you a better person.

You're taking an important step by trying to improve your health. Keep it up, and you'll be OK!

Hi Sheila,
I'm so sorry that you are going through such a rough time. Business and financial stresses can really put a strain on a marriage and cause people to act like jerks. My husband and I have really struggled for the 7 years we have been together because he had gone back to school and then into a 6 year training program...we still have another year to go. I hate to admit that it has made us act mean at times. My grandmother always told me that "whenever everything goes bad, all of a sudden everything goes good." Not the most eloquent saying, but it always came true for me. Maybe some counseling could help both of you deal with your stress and marriage better. I hope things work out for you.
Lisa :)
