The depression and anxiety I've been dealing with lately have been hard on him, too. Anxiety, they say, expresses itself as rage, and I have to admit, ashamedly, that the Husband has taken the brunt of that. So we've not been our closest lately and as he was getting ready to leave the country for a week, I was feeling pretty emotional about adding such a physical distance to the emotional distance we've recently felt.
Me: I'm just so sick of us never understanding each other anymore. Everything is so hard and I just wish we agreed on something.
Husband: Well, we both like Batman.
That pretty much made my day.
