My FI says "he is feeling trapped"...

Recommended Posts

Oh Dez, this is so unfair. It sounds like you have tried to be very supportive and it's terrible you are strating to feel this way about the man you want to spend the rest of your life with. Do you think there is any chance he will get back on his medication properly? It sounds like from what you & Karma are saying that he will not be reasonable and able to discuss this fairly until he's taking his pills again...

 

I really am sorry you are going thru this...

By cutting them in half, he has enough for 2 months...so maybe another month and a half or so and then he HAS to make an appointent with the Psychatrist for a refill...so we will see.

I'll give it some more time. Unlike him wanting me to change (the messyness) I know what his faults are and accept them. I love him. But there's only so much you can take even when you love the person.

Thank you all for being here for me. I put off posting about this because I'm embarassed and stuff, but it has helped to talk about it.

I fwd him stuff about the DJ in Mexico (sent it to him yesterday). He just checked his email and tried talking to me about it LOL

 

You GOT to be kidding! I guess he figured otu by my "yes" "no" answeres that I didn't really want to talk about it.

OK.. IMO I think you both have underlining issues you need to work on. If you are unhappy with yourself, how can you be happy with someone else? It's clear to me that he needs back on his meds, but harping on him isn't going to get that to happen, maybe sit down with him and say "If you do this, I'll try to pick up more" Marriage is about working together, use this as a learning tool. I think on some level your unhappy with yourself because you gained that weight back, and trust me I know when you sad or depressed you just want to eat, but you need to take care of yourself first, hopefully he will see this and also want to change.

 

Also, maybe I'm wrong but is their money problems as well? We all know how most men are, you say you want a DJ and all they see is dollar signs.. If their is a money issue then that could be a big part to why he is acting this way.

You are not alone around here. FI and I fight more than either one of us would like to. Our biggest problem is communication. He never wants to talk about stuff unless I get to the point that I am done trying to talk and ready to just leave. Suddenly, he wants to talk!!!

 

One big thing that effects our communication other than he being male and I being a female is the way we were brought up. With me growing up most of my life with my Mom as the sole provider, and FI growing up in a home where his Mom had to ask permission to fart (the fart comment is exaggerated, but I want you to get the idea - no man vs THE MAN!!!) We have seen a counsellor a couple times over the years, and it has helped, although I think we should totally make another appointment, because after awhile, you need a refresher.

 

Hopefully your FI will realize that his meds are important is his happiness as well as your happiness together, and the therapist will be able to help him out a bit when he goes for a refill.

 

From my own experience, try and find common ground to sit down and talk, even if it is a little bit at a time, and try to avoid all wedding stuff for a bit. You can't expect everything to be worked out overnight, and of course it is an ongoing task. Don't leave for a few days, this doesn't help. If you need a few hours or an afternoon or something to think, go for it. Take a walk or go to the park or whatever you can do that will allow you to calm down and think on your own before you both try and talk whenyou are both worked up and frustrated to start with. grouphug.gif

Very well said, Tammy. I couldn't agree more.

You know we are all here for you Dez! grouphug.gif

    • Hey Ladies, I’m planning my wedding for October 2020 and we have narrowed it down to the Now Jade or Royalton Riviera Maya. We are expecting about 50-60 people and want a private reception. We are coming from BC, Canada.  Reading through the forums on here has been super helpful so far!  Something that’s been a bit hard in planning is figuring out all the hidden fees that add up on top of your basic wedding package.  Any tips or advice? Thanks!  
    • Visit Jamaica and check out Montego Bay Photographer for your family vacation or Destination Wedding photography!!! https://www.montegobayphotographer.com
    • I think I fhttp://www.cigarjamaica.com/ound what you're looking for: 
    • My parents divorced quite recently, just few years ago after being rather unhappily married for 26 years. My mom caught him cheating. I got engaged a few months ago and a month later with little notice my father married the woman who he was with when my mom caught him. I live in a different country so only met her and her family a few times, they were very nice to me, my father is very happy. I am polite / neutral with her. On the contrary my mom is not doing great at all, she is still in a complete breakdown and a month after engagement she made a scene that she does not want my father at my wedding and hang up on me. When she found out i speak to his new partner she refused to talk to me ever again. It’s been a couple of month now, i tried to reach out but she blocked me. My mom is not really a very reasonable type, i try to take care of her and cheer her up but I cant just sit and talk to her peacefully, it is always a drama when it comes to my father. My grandparents are on her side. I mentioned to my father that i will not be inviting his wife as i don’t feel comfortable making the whole situation much worse and also because i really dont know her well to which he said that he may not be coming then. What do I do about it? It looks like it maybe the case that neither of my parents will come or if my father comes with his wife i may never be able to fix the relationship with my mother....
    • I'm so excited to finally, after 9 years, getting married again!  He's so amazing and we want to have an amazing wedding in Jamaica next year.  Allow me to introduce myself:  I am Katherine,  his grandchildren will call me KitKat! who is marrying a minister that truly leaves me speechless at times the way he loves and cares for me.  Professionally, I am a destination wedding planner/travel agent/award-winning floral designer, so this wedding will be my ENCORE.  Last night, we started out with 50 guests, relatively the larger size of most destination weddings.  Then our guest list grew to 100.  Right! My team right now, does have a contact in Jamaica, that I'm already working with. We are working on the budget, constantly.  The plan is to have all of the details together before Thanksgiving holiday, so that family and friends can prepare to start booking.
