    He Got a Job!!!!! This Should Be a Good Thing, Right?

    I am now feeling really optimistic about it, and he has gone deeper into feeling depressed!  I tired to take him out to eat and have some beers to celebrate his getting a job after I got off work, and he wouldn't answer the phone.  I couldn't come home because I knew it...

    So Confused, Every Day!

    Ok, so I guess the only way to tell this story is to start at the beginning. I left my husband, who was a decent enough guy. He just wanted to sit at home all of the time and never see friends or do new things. So, I decided I wanted more for myself and I wanted him to find...
