Anger Management Board Index

First I apologise if this post confuses you-I just wrote how I feel & it is confusing.

I have been so grumpy & snappy latley & feeling so stressed and angry lately. Everything is a bother. If I am doing something and my husband comes along and asks me to do something for him - I let out a long sigh (I hear them & so does he) when he hears them he says "oh, do you think you can handle doing that?" It's like I really don't want to do anything right now but what I am doing. (I don't say that)

I am not sure if I am becoming depressed again or if I am just miserable and lack motivation because I am angry. I do not want to go back on my antidepressants again-I hate them! They make me tired. I have taken Prozac for years & weaned myself off them 6 months ago so not sure if my grumpy moods are coming from depression. I still take 300 mg Wellbutrin XL in the am. But no prozac.

It is usually the opposite and I will doing something thoughtful for him & he will say "what is this?" or "who told you to do this?" or "why don't you just do what your told?" I bought him a couple of heavy duty machinery magazines the other day - WELL- they weren't the ones he likes so he looks at them and dumps all the sections on the table & says " Who told you to buy these?" "Stop buying me things if you don't know what your doing" a waste of money! So I picked them up and said "no problem" & took them to my room-were they still remain.

I have 5 bulldogs and they are my baby's & his too but lately I don't even have the patience for them either. My head feels heavy & I feel numb. I feel stressed & numb. I feel angry, stressed & numb. I have no motivation to do anything around here other than the basics-cooking, laundry, changing beds, baking lemon tarts for him because they are his favorite.

I feel I am easy to get along with but with him there is no room for error. but I also feel like I don't want to be around him. I stay in my bedroom on my laptop & he is in the office on his computer or he sits at the kitchen table on the phone. He doesn't talk to me much because he doesn't have the patience & heaven forbid I heard him wrong and reply in the wrong way "you don't listen" "do you know what your problem is? you don't listen" "why do I even bother trying to talk to you?"

We don't have the same interests at all. I like to talk about what is going on in the news or what I saw today or something will come to mind and I will ask him. He will say "I don't know, & I don't care whats going on in the paper & I don't have a clue what you are talking about". Shot down again! His world is made up of working on his dump truck, talking to his buddy about their dumptrucks and they plan big ventures relating to work-none of them happen. He has been working locally but not enough for what we need. A trucking business is not a money maker it is a money taker-it costs a lot of money to have a one man contracting truck business.

I don't work anymore after 30 years in an office. I am 57 years old and I am wracking my brain to come up with some kind of work I can do from home. Since I left my job I hurt myself & I am limited to what I can do. I have looked into Professional Resume Writing; Managing Your own Business; Web & Design & most recent How to start an Operate a Floral Design Business. I have the course to learn all of them but I can't get my head into any of them. I just go and lie down and tune it all out.
