If You Were in My Shoes...

What would you do? So my husband has been giving me cold shoulders after posting cryptic shout out on his FB. (If you have been my follower, you must have read it in one of my discussions ) The day I saw his shout out I immediately sent him a private Message.He did not reply.Instead,he deactivated his account.Since he is a mariner,our means of communication is by SMS,chat or video call. I immediately sent him several SMS to ask what the problem was but he did not dare to reply. I have been clueless until now. The last time we chatted everything waa smooth. The next day he was that strange. I continued to send him information about my day and ny visits to the doctor and so on even though he does not reply. After 12 days he replied to my kakaotalk with a devil emoticon .I sent her a video of our daughter but his reply was a devil emo?? I replied "happy halloween" he just typed "I will be very busy due to inspection" Durimg those days that he was acting up, many things came into my mind like maybe somebody else is using his account because my lappy was stolen last month.Perhaps his mobile phone was stolen and so on. Yesterday,I sent a message to him, I asked him to write his mom's name in English characters.If he won't be able to reply or do it then somebody must have been using his mobile phone.But after 24 hours his reply was correct. I really do not know what made him cross. Why is he giving me tbis attitude? I asked him just now through chat what was wrong. I don't know if he would reply.

Wow, it must be hard to be in your situation right now. Even I am confused as to what I would do if something like that were to happen to me. But growing up in a Christian community, if there's nothing I can do to confirm my own suspicions, I just pray, and let God do the work if He wills it. But anyway, with what is going on with you right now, I can only hope that you will get through it eventually. God bless!

Thanks for your comment Bady @GopherDanny. I really appreciate your gesture. I am also a Christian (Catholic). Yes, prayers help a lot. I asked for the intercession of St.Therese. After three days I received a reply from husband but unfortunaty a devil emo hahahaha. But atleast ,I know he is still alive and kicking lol.

I have been in a long distance relationship which the main means of communication comprises of text messages and IMs. And I have to admit that in texts and messages, it is hard to gauge if a person is joking, being silly, or mad or just being neutral. You cannot hear the intonation or see the gestures to actually see how the message is conveyed that it is very easy to misinterpret the message. Maybe he just needs some time to get over it and calm down and eventually he will be ready to talk about it. Just keep giving him updates and do not disconnect with him.
