Just a quick vent - sorry! Sometimes I just wish there would be a conduct disorder forum for boyfriends/spouses/significant others. Just when you think the waters are safe they go ahead and say something so momumentally stupid you want to give them a time out! I have to say that I'm very lucky - my boyfriend is really great 99% of the time. It's just that when the other 1% comes out I want to smash his head with a large frying pan. I'm sure we will have a long conversation and in the end everything will be ok - but right now I feel like burying him in the backyard. I believe the phrase that started my anger was him saying that because I have a hard time dealing with the fact that my difficult child's rapist got off scott free it is now effecting our relationship. Well, gee, you think maybe it effects me as well and that I might be having a hard time dealing with it and his support is what I need - not another form of stress to remind me that I can't always push that thought out of my head??!! Why do they have to be so stupid? Anyway - thank you for an avenue to vent. If I didn't get this one out of my head I think it would have spontaneously combusted.
