    I was that way...I couldn't do any longer.

    ..I brought it up and she felt the same way. We separated and later on we divorced. It was hard but I am now happily divorced and best friends with her. :-) Good luck

    He thinks everything I say

    that challenges him or goes against what he wants is a part of some master plan I have concocted to resist our marriage. News flash buddy, you do that all on your own with your apathetic ways and the disease you refuse to do anything about.
