  1. I hope tihs is close to the topic. My husband & I have been enablers to our kids partly becuase
    we haven’t taken time to say no when we are stressed tired o
    r other things.I want to think we don’t get more than we can handle. It often makes just a little sense.
    We are older parents who get help rarely from friends. So we feel burned and have 2 with
    learning problems/one has Aspergers. I’m kinda tough, but not your typical strong, I have a ways to go.
    It certainly doesn’t make it better to have a huaband who says don’t cry cuase he thinks tough
    ppl don’t cry Ouch to that. So therapy does nothing & I’m just praying more. I know I need to change
    but hubby thinks cuase he does laundry and can cook that he’s the perfect man.
    No understand ing of feelings. The next time your husband understands or wants to go on a date be glad for it! No dates here. Hubby would rather us do laundry.
