Talking we argue and bicker ...

we've begun "bickering" again (i find it quite hurtful) -- my dh stopped taking his effexor (his doctor said he should reduce it to a level at which he still is not depressed), but he doesn't know his own body -- when i pointed out that perhaps he should start taking it again, he did so grudgingly and for the past two days has been much better ... but i can barely cope .... i can't keep track of this guy's meds and his reactions to them (or w/o them), and i think he expects me to ... also, he's been out of work since last july, and please don't tell me to go a little easy on him b/c a man's ID is bound up with his work -- i know that!!

i have my own issues to deal with (thyroid disease, stroke), and i can't out-argue him so just give in, and it's really taking a toll ...

we're going to marriage counselling, both he and i are getting counselling (tho' i go much less -- too tired, which he doesn't understand) ...

just complaining ...
keep the faith ...

Re: we argue and bicker ...

I'm sorry you're going through such a hard time, jb. You might get your counselor's input related to your husband's medication and if s/he knows of a different psychiatrist to prescribe his meds...
