last week we rented a car and drove from Michigan to Kansas to see our property. it was fun but all i did was eat,sit while my husband drove and slept. we were there an back in 6 days.we had some rain going there, but fortunately we missed all the big storms and tornadoes. . it was fun but tiring. but the next day, reality hit home again. the friends were calling and coming by, the beer started and i was left sitting in the house again, by myself! i know ive let this happen thru out our marriage but since the stroke , i find i can t tolerate it anymore.our house is n o t the party house!!!!! plus he told me to...not to bother him . i was stunned.i felt like a knife was put thru my heart. but 10 min later, the buddies came over, with the beers and i was forgotten once again.before i could get in my car and leave, now i can t drive so i am stuck here and hating all the partying in our 4 car garage while i sit in the house again. im sure we had some marriage problems like everyone else but after the stroke, i find this less tolerable. he told me im just jealous that he has so many friends and i hae none and this is hie house, too, and if they want to come over and drink, so be it! i have read that strokes are very hard and stressful on a marriage and they can end most marriages.i find and think that my stroke will do us in.don t get me wrong, there are a lot of positive things in our marriage and he has helped me some to get better but i can see all the new stresses on us and the remarks made by him to me.believe me i don t want to complain om this blog but this is so new to me its scary!
