As some of you may know already my husband is a control freak.He's right and I'm wrong. Well we went a couple of days where he didn't belittle me or correct.Was nice,thought our little talk helped. Today we took daughter to dr. In most cases moms take children to dr.'sNot all but most.So dr.'s are use to talking with the mothers.I have done more than 90% of all the dr. visits with our children. I hate it when he comes with me.I can explain what is going on,something he and I agree on.Dr. understand and then moves on to something else.Then later my husband will bring it up again just worded differently but basically the same thing I said. I was kind of embarrased cause I already said the same thing to the dr. and he addressed it. Now I am sure someone may say he was just trying to be aprt of the conversation.Believe me I allowed him time to respond,every question asked was directed to us both.I don't control the conversation I just take part as he should too.But he has always gotten mad when the dr. looks at me and not him when answering questions. Maybe someone out there will understand what I am saying.I know my husband very well and it is all about being right and the need to clairfy what I say to others. This is a guy that wouldn't even go the the hospital the day she had her first brain surgery.I went alone.All of the medical problems my girls have I know more about them cause I am with them.He thinks of it as a competition.And too, I think it just gets his goat that maybe I do know more about something than he does. Sorry, not a FM thing just a bad day with my husband.Had to grip somewhere. I am just so tired of him correcting me, when I have an idea he always thinks of a better way to do it.When I drive he complains about me not staying between the lines and loves to be critical but he makes out like it is a joke.He thinks that known of us knows that he is really serious when he is sarcastic. I am pulling out my hair over this. Sheila See it is stuff like this that just keeps me stressed.We just had our 18th wedding anniversary yesterday.No big event,never is neither is birthdays,valentines. We are to get rid of stress as much as we can.How do I keep dealing with a man that wants control all the time.I am almost 40 yrs. old and I don't need him to be my daddy. He just admitted the other day that he does talk down to me and he is gonna try and do better.Well today he blew it.
