I am having tension in my gut and I wonder if it is because hubby is at home right now? He had surgery and will be going back to work in two weeks. He is not the nicest person, loud voice, negative and I have to use the phone away from him or he is butting into conversations. The only hobby he has is watching sports on tv. He is always around! I wake up and it's one negative comment after another from criticizing people in the newspaper, on tv, people we know. Of course, outside the house, he's as charming as can be. To control me, he has a loud voice and things he says to me I would never say to someone. He'll say he's kidding, or that he told me that three times already, etc. So, I think it is the energy I am absorbing. I am taking probiotics, they aren't really doing a whole lot right now. I also know that sometimes the IBS will act up but I have not had it this bad in a very long time. I do take a gentle yoga class and am active in the community, but it is Winter where I am in the house more with this guy. Is this what retirement is like?????
