Need to let off steam atm, my husband is doing my head in atm. He is still unwell with groin pain but the specialist said on monday that his hernia was so small it didn't need an opp atm. He has suggested he gets a nerve block injection to stop the pain. The trouble is it wil take 8 weeks or so, so he is in a right mood today and would not get up until this afternoon, he is not depressed he just gets in these moods and gets cross with all of us. I have been looking after him since feb and my dad and sister are ill, I have just started physio for a trapped nerve in my neck and shoulder and have increased my venlafaxine to 150mg this week so I feel crap. But I still have to get up and look after the kids and I had to take the dog to the vets this morning as she had an allergic reaction to something and her face swelled up, I was terrified. She is getting very nervous and has developed seperation anxiety atm with me. I just feel that I am going to crack up or explode I am so fed up with picking up the peices of the dog or kids being upset because OH shouts at them for no reason. Have talked and talked about it until I am blue in the face but he thinks I am having a go at him and flips and walks away slamming the door. I just cannot see an end to this atm, I just wake up after a crappy nights sleep and think 'here we go again' I don't want to live like this anymore I want someone to look after me for a change. I'm not even asking much just the occasional cup of tea or pots put in the dishwasher, thanks for listening, Nicola :mad::tea::confused:
