Put Your Foot Down
March 7, 2017 5:51pm CST
I am under a tremendous amount of stress. Relax, this isn't a rant discussion-I hate those! But, with working, packing, dealing with the companies that we will use to orchestrate this move I am feeling down. And on top of that I still need to rehome our fish. And last week my doctor gave me some bad news regarding my health, so tomorrow morning (early) I have to drive to a hospital for some testing. This evening my husband texted me asking me to pick up something for him, and I lost it. I didn't mean to but at what point do you put your foot down? I apologized, which in turn meant that he apologized twice to me. I have been crying since before he asked me to do that favour. I'm just so worried about my health and I'm all alone here. So I put my foot down and asked him to step up to the plate. Was I wrong? I'm sorry if this ends up sounding more like a rant, but I'm just at the end of my rope, and there isn't enough to tie a knot.

I made a comment like that to my husband once, I asked him to do something and he told me it wasn't convenient for him to drop something off on his way past....I mentioned how many times I went out of my way.....he told me..not t Me so accommodating.....not a good thing to say to me.....two days later he asked a favour.....I told him it was t convenient...so no I couldn't......he apologized (I did it after all). He suddenly realized how much I was doing.
I wish I lived closer I would be there helping you out in any way I could. I wish I could give you a hug. It is understandable that you are stressed out and upset about your health and ontop of all that you are working and trying to get things packed along with everything else that needs to be done before the big move. You had every right to put your foot down. Him not being there he doesn't realize how much you have taken on being alone. Hang in there. I am continuing to pray for you. I hope everything goes well for you tomorrow.
Thank you. I am so scared with the way the doctor put this most recent health issue.....its just really bad timing right now. My husband and I have always worked as a team, but with part of the team living in another city for 5 days out of the week, it is trying. Only 23 more days.......every day I count down.

Well, if he is not being there for you at this time, you do have a reason to be a little upset. Sounds like right now you have a lot going on where you need some moral support from. Will be Praying for you that you can get done all you need to do and for your Health situation.

Oh honey, I'm so sorry. It's understandable to get fed up and frustrated under those circumstances. And you need that support so I'm glad your husband knows that now. I don't know what's going on with your health, but I'm going to pray for you constantly today and tomorrow, and longer than that if you need it. Try to imagine Jesus putting His arms around you. Because He is near.
Thank you, I sure can use your prayers. You know just what to say. I sent our son a text asking him to be extra nice to Dad as I blundered and got upset with him, he texted me back telling me that another 3 1/2 weeks and we'll be together and this will be behind me but he could understand how I am upset. Now he's a bit concerned over my health, and I didn't mean to worry him. The doctor scared me when he told me I've got what killed my Dad-poor choice of words isn't it? He lacks a good bedside manner.
