((((LadyBug))))

A week can seem forever under those circumstances.

Just keep in mind that it isn't, no matter how bad it feels.

I know you don't have many choices as to what to do, but can you stick a favorite movie in the VCR and lose yourself in that? Or read, if (unlike me) you can muster concentration when you're upset.

I always remember how much of the time I'll be sleeping, or count down the time till when I'd be seeing him anyway, then after that say it won't be any longer than a normal week. I don't know how I trick myself that way, but I manage to.

When my husband is upset, I try creative visualization to create a shield or some sort of barrier between us. It doesn't keep me from being empathetic or helpful in any way I can be, but it is designed to prevent leakage from his moood into mine.

I'm so sorry you're hurting.
