Thanks much for your response to my post(s)!
You are SO RIGHT about me needing NOT to be my husband's mommy! But .. at times, (way too many times) that is exactly what I feel like!
Boundaries are so terribly hard to implement with an individual such as my husband. He doesn't seem to get it, no matter how many times I may say or show him how serious I am about something.
Yeah, 51 is too mature to be thinking this way. .. And to young to be thinking that he is "done" with working. (I am a few years younger.)
... Being able to "put up with it" my husband (the situation) as it is, is the million dollar question. Can I .. will I? If I Do .. HOW?
The counseling thing .. yeah, maybe I will consider seeing someone again for "me". I have learned that there is absolutely NO SENSE in me suggesting/urging my husband to go to counseling .. 'cause if he doesn't want to be there, it will do him no good.
