An Update of Sorts

Just over a month ago I was feeling extremely depressed. Things at home were going pretty poorly as my wife seemed to be heading for some major depressive episode, my job was busy but finances were still strained and my daughter was having a hard time adjusting to the new place.

Well, things have changed quite drastically from that point, and mostly for the good.

My wife is now working two jobs although they are both part-time. She seems much happier aside from the occasional stress from working two jobs and my daughter has a good amount of friends that we barely see her during the day.

I spent last week on a job that took me into the heart of the Rockies and I was loving every minute of it. 

So needless to say things are almost back to normal for the most part and my depression is now in check.

Honestly, I think the shift in my wife's medication changed her mood quite a bit for the better and her leaving her last job helped as well.

We had morning sex a few weeks ago as I mentioned in a previous post, but it is still not on a regular basis and all very vanilla.

I find myself staring at my wife at times. She seems to be getting more beautiful as she gets older. I was in my daughters room the other day and saw a picture from when my wife worked for a park in NYC, and thought of how beautiful she looked.

It was a picture of her and her friend from a newspaper article about two blonds from California working at a park in Staten Island. Yes she basically was being interviewed because she was this beautiful blond in a very unlikely place.

There is this newscaster on the local news channel that I think is gorgeous, of course she is 24 with blond hair and blue eyes, recently I have found myself thinking, my wife looked better at 24 then she does, so she will not look any better than my wife does at 39.

If only our intimacy was where I want it to be, our lives would be perfect now.

Of course financially we are still struggling a bit, but that seems to be the norm these days. At least we pretty much have everything that we need right now and that is saying a lot.

  1. Consider that your wife is just tired and needs time to adapt. That you find her beautiful tells me you are romantic. I hope you tell her she is beautiful. Try holding her or kissing her just for that purpose alone. Do not do this with the intention of having sex. You just might see a change in her. Give her time. Also realize that certain meds decrease one's sex drive.

A Cry Out For Help.

The room was completely silent aside from her breathing. I was awake slightly trying to get back to sleep. Apparently something woke me up at this hour, because I was extremely tired from the weekend. Her breathing seemed odd, almost labored, and I could hear a moan every now and again. Despite her sleeping habits, talking, moaning, breathing heavy, this seemed different. I reached over and touched her shoulder, wondering if it was just me or should I try to wake her. When I heard another moan I gave her a quick shake to see if everything was ok. She stirred slightly but did not waken completely. I shook her again, and again she did not respond very well. At this point I knew something was wrong and I got up and turned on the light. I called her name slightly louder at this point and got back on the bed to shake her awake. She opened her eyes and looked up at me and looking at her eyes I could see the emptiness. Fearing the worst, that she decided to finish off her medications

Raining (HNT)

The rain has been falling for the last few days here. We needed it so I am not complaining. It has made the weekend plans a little harder but I think we will find something fun to do. I am still working on getting used to the camera and lack of flash, so the picture seems a little grainy but I thought it went well with the dark rainy weather we are having. Happy HNT! As always check out Osbasso for who else is playing!

I debated a long time before I posted that last piece. It was and has been a very difficult point in my life, and I wanted to keep some of the blog more upbeat. Although these incidents define my life and relationship over the past six years. Things have gotten better. She was hospitalized one or two times a year for the first three years when we moved here, ending completely in 2007. There was one more incident in 2008 that she should have gone and that I was stupid for not bringing her and thankful that it did not turn out any worse. My daughter remembers some of those times, like spending Mothers Day in the common area of the mental health facility. She also understands she is sick, but still makes the comments like 'Why does mommy sleep all the time." Or "Mommy is always angry." I would be foolish to say that this has not affected our relationship. I would like to say that we are stronger, but I have yet to open my heart back up to her as I did in the past
