Dealing with (wifes) menopause
Must admit I find it really tough and I don't think I'm taking the right approach.
At the moment, shes either sleeping or in a mood. Its like a black cloud following around the house.
Some of the stuff she comes up with - I just think "eh have you gone insane?"
She'll lose her temper at nothing. At random it seems. She seems to actually get a kick out of criticising me sometimes I'm sure.
She'll do or say things to me that, if I've said in the past, would cause holy hell. But she justifies it with "well you shouldn't have...." Eh?
Today she asked me something, I was in the middle of sorting the TV Sat box I said "one sec". So she repeated, I saig again calmly "yeh just one sec".
Shes off raising her voice "YOU NEED TO CHILL OUT AND CALM DOWN". "CALM DOWN, CALM DOWN, CALM DOWM".
Like WTF! Shes knows this winds me up so was just trying to get a rise out of me. Why I don't know? She can be a massive bully sometimes.....
I try to let a lot of stuff go, or at least, not let it escalate but I'm not the best. It just annoys me so much that shes constantly like this and causing an argument over nothing.... Yeh I know don't take it personally but sometimes.....
So any advice?
