When Is Enough, Enough?
My spouse has suffered from severe chronic back pain for the last 3 years of our 7 year marriage. Recently it's gotten so bad that he has begun to take it out on me. I try to support him, I rarely (I'm not perfect!) complain about him not being able to help out with child care (we have two children under 5) or house work and I help him as much as I can. But I have my break downs too. Why am I expected to never be stressed out? Last night I had one of those break downs and slammed a door. My husband freaked out and came after me and began to choke me. Luckily he stopped before he did any harm, and apologized later, but how much am I expected to take?
