Don't know what to do
Me and my wife have been married for 7 years we have been together for 14 over the past year I've heard and dealt with nothing but negativity from her constantly nagging and complaining about everything that I made do when she does the exact same and by that I mean she's a very selfish and jealous person she doesn't like me have any friends are doing anything but she can have many friends and thanks that is OK I recently had a problem and addiction problem I've been dealing with that I became addicted to prescription medication the funny thing about it is is that this whole time that she was taking my medication to abusing it is actually recovering addict she doesn't believe me that she is relaxed and I tell her that she has and doesn't wanna believe it she lies to her family and friends and people that we know and tell him that I have a problem but doesn't bring up the fact that she's been abusing my medication as well I'm just really tired of it my financial situation is in the best I've tried to work through the problems but have got nowhere I can really use some advice I don't have many people to talk to actually none really besides her I need to get out to meet other people and try to figure this out if anybody has any type of recommendation in but I would appreciate it very much thank you
My friend, you need to take a step back.... have more time to yourself.....more breathing space ..... get a hobby....join a cycling club , go fishing or learn to play an instrument .... She does not own you..
You do not own her... You are two separate people...
Work on changing yourself, ~Do Not, seek to change her, but Yourself you can change for the better.... When you do this ~ Life will change for the better, and your whole world will become a lot brighter ! May the power of the mighty storm be with you ! ...
I Agree with STOMRIDER Z-You need to focus on you.
Are you seeking medical help for your addiction problem? Does AA offer help with this type of addiction? If so this would be a good place to meet people who can relate to you and your issues- also place to make a few friends.
MAN UP/PUT YOUR BIG BOY PANTS ON- take back your power/control, she no longer determines if you will or can have friends-(period).
Your addiction issue is your personal issue, tell her not to bring up your personal issues again in front of anybody, if she does, she can expect that you will discuss her issues well.
Working on changing yourself- means you need to change your attitude-about yourself- Change your attitude to -RESPECT is your RIGHT.
Also- this is an excellent site- you will always find someone here to talk to. Hope to talk again.
