It's August...

... but THMDS is still operational, unlike your basic paid therapist. Yeah, so they have their big degrees and all, but can they really and truly relate to what you're going through?

Remember that we always link back to your blog when you post a question here (unless you prefer to remain anonymous of course), so ask away.

Augusts... dear Augusts. Why have my life's biggest adventures and traumas always happened during the months of August? Why not November, or April, or...? Can it be self-fulfilling prophecy, or is there such a thing as Destiny & Fate all rolled into a big ball of... August?

I'm anonymous for this post, otherwise I'll get killed. My husband is sick, and he needs to see a doctor, but he has not seen anyone but a dentist, eye doc and dermatologist for over 30 years. He is having problems with balance, and it is so bad that I suspect he has had a small stroke recently, but I can't prove it.

He told me today that if I tell our children about his symptoms, he will leave me. Then he screamed that I was making him worse with my nagging him to go see a doctor.
I don't know what to do. Part of me wants to wash my hands of him - if he can't be bothered to care about himself - why should I worry about him? Another part wants to call the children and tell them, so maybe they can force him to see a doctor or go to the emergency room. One big problem is that he has no medical insurance. The other is that he is a scaredy-cat. His mom was deathly afraid of doctors and she did a good job of transferring that fear to him. What would you do?

was I crazy when i agreed to split the house with my X for the sake of raising my 16 y.o daughter, so she could have one home, and more supervision?

I just know it feels so good now to get out ( taking dghtr with)
it must have been a test, what do you think?
