Thats something i would have done as well because sometimes they need a short, sharp shock!.

What they dont think of is our feelings and that were worried just as much!

I hate to admit this, but I'm a lot like your husband Hissy. I would almost rather die than go to the doctor, and when I do finally give in and go to the doctor, I'm terrified. I have have a severe hernia that needs to be repaired. It causes me such pain and has thrown my hips out of place to the point where I can hardly walk, but I am too scared to go to the doctor. I just wish it would get well on it's own. I know it won't, but I just can't face going to the doctor. What if he tells me I have cancer? At the very least I would need surgery on it, and I am terrified of that. I understand your husbands fear, and I also understand where you are coming from. He's lucky he has you, because at least he does have someone who is there for him.

I have some friends that will barely talk to me, until I go get this problem taken care of, and when they do talk to me, it's only about my hernia. I get angry at them for bugging me about it, but I do know deep down inside that they care about me, or they wouldn't bug me about it.

I don't think it's too late for Mike to start taking better care of himself at all. He should talk to his doctor about these concerns, and you should be by his side when he does this to provide good morale support.

Still sending lots of vibes and prayers to you both!

Thinking of you both this morning, and hoping that today is a better day for you both.

Mary Anne, is that a new revelation for Mike to actually admit that he's afraid and also angry at himself? Hopefully it means he's beginning to see the light.

It sounds like the 2 of you had a break through! You did the one thing that was guarenteed to make him sit up and take notice. He knows as well as you do that you are both the best things that have ever happened to each other and it took you walking out the door to realise that what he WASN'T doing was making you walk out the door.

I hope that this has helped him turn the corner and start on a path to healing and health. I will keep him in my prayers. I will also keep sending prayers of strenght to you as well!

What a terrible thing to have to do, but sometimes, it's the only thing that works. Now that you have talked it out, I hope things get better. Plus, now that he knows you are serious, he'll get himself the help he so desperately needs. Good luck and God bless.
