… I’ve been texting with Zack. The funeral was supposed to be today at 1. He tells me today that the funeral was changed to tomorrow at 3. Am I wrong in thinking he is really expecting a lot from me? I mean, he goes to his home state alone. He’s a mere 60 minutes from Harley. He never seems to have great service when he’s there so texts don’t get answered right away and there’s not a whole lot of communication anyway. A fucking funeral gets moved to a completely different day and time and I’m expected to just go along with the flow and not question anything, not have any worries.
I think that’s what’s been bothering me. Not only does he want to move on, focus on the future, not dwell on the past… but also I’m supposed to do the same. I am not allowed to heal at my own pace without making him feel bad. I see so many blogs where the men are apologizing months and months after D-Day. They take their wife’s anger and understand they caused it. They deal with their breakdowns and anxiety. Zack has never wanted to face any of that. He wants to pretend it never happened and that if we just focus on the future then none of that will happen.
It’s not my fault I get triggered by things. It’s not my fault him being in his home state by himself causes me anxiety. It’s about time he realizes that instead of expecting me to make the concessions. I’m not the one that cheated! I didn’t betray him and make plans to live my life with someone else. I wasn’t telling some other man I loved him. If he had ever done a smidgen of research on affair recovery he would have known triggers will always be present. He would have known it generally takes between 18 and 24 months to fully recover. Instead he wanted it over and done with pretty much after he confessed.
Anyway, I don’t know if it’s the Prozac kicking in after a mere 3 or 4 days or what but I’ve been keeping the anxiety at bay. I’ve got diarrhea like a crazy woman so maybe it’s manifesting itself that way. Pleasant. Can’t take the Visteral until after 8 because I have to pick up Rock Star…
I’ve been keeping track of the money I’m spending because for the life of me I can’t figure out why the hell we don’t have a ton of money left over each pay period! Well, I know for the month of June it was because we were on vacation and eating out all the time. And last pay period it was because we were in Florida and again, eating out and going shopping. But even this pay period I wouldn’t have stayed within limits if not for the fact that we didn’t need to pay for trash, Am Ex, or the bank credit card. Of course, I also went back to school shopping today because it is the tax free weekend and ended up spending almost $500. Plus I had Rock Star’s cheerleading fees to pay plus a sweatshirt to buy. The check to Mom for the water park came through and that was $90… Picasso got assigned to be in band instead of getting art and home ec as his electives so he may not be signing up for cello lessons after all. Who knows, maybe he’ll really enjoy band. I’ve got fees to pay on the 14th but even for the 2 of them I don’t think it will even cost $100. I do still need to buy food for the rest of the pay period…
Present Day Sam Says: A change in funeral plans? Come on, Sam! How dumb are you?
Okay, I will admit I was suspicious, but he was so convincing. He insisted that he was told the time was going to be Friday and he must have misunderstood.
Did anybody catch the Prozac reference? The man lies and says I was mentally abusive and manipulative and I ended up on fucking Prozac before this was all over and done with! I stopped taking it almost immediately when he tried to insinuate that “my depression was deepening”.
I wasn’t depressed, you asshole! You were driving me fucking crazy!
