I tell you, taking care of someone who you are trying not to let get emotional is killing me! It doesnt help that he is blowing up over everything, Cory is refusing to attempt to de-esculate anything, and the overall stress level in this house is somewhere in the ozone layer. I think part of the problem is that husband's brain isnt working quite right so he is more irritable. Who can blame him? His body just had quite an attack. Then add in the fact that because of all the problems we have had with Cory, everything he does seems to grate on husband's last nerve right now. I dont care what Cory does, it irritates husband. He can simply breathe and its wrong right now. Then we add me into this mix. Im running around trying to plug up all the outbursts and Im not all that good at it. Im usually the one that is doing the bursting. Now Im getting in between the two of them and playing referee. I just had to get into it over dinner. I swear this may be the diet I needed cause I cant stomach food right now. husband said something he probably shouldnt have to Cory about dinner. Then Cory starts back yelling and screaming at him and it was on. The whole cussing fit. I went out and told Cory to just leave the room and eat in his room. This nonsense had to stop and everyone needed to calm down. Well that didnt work. Cory kept on saying that he wasnt leaving the room, blah blah blah. husband is getting more and more agitated and he is yelling back at Cory. Ugly words were said. I finally put my foot down and told Cory that I really didnt care what happened or what was right anymore but that from now on I was not having any stress or outbursts in my house and if he couldnt just shut up, he could leave. I point blank told him that his father meant more to me at this point in my life than him or any of my kids and I would see us living alone before I was gonna risk his health for ONE MORE SECOND! Cory wasnt pleased to put it lightly. He started cussing at us and said he hoped husband would have another stroke and die this time. Then he threw his plate of food in the trash and stormed out. He says he isnt coming home again but we shall see. Now his dad is an emotional mess. He is falling apart because he says this blow up was all his fault and that he shouldnt have said anything to Cory. Well maybe he shouldnt have but he is under an enormous strain right now and we have to give him some leeway right now. And personally, I dont care what he said to start it, Cory can shut up and not agitate things. But poor husband is beside himself now. This man never cries...well only if something happens to me or one of the kids, but he was sitting in the chair with tears rolling down talking about how wrong it is that he cant even get along with his son. I feel so bad and so helpless. Ok...thanks for the vent...I needed it. No one to talk to who can listen right now and my "rock" crumbled a bit on me.
