dose anyone feel that although they live with husband/wife/partner they can at times feel very lonely. my OH is doing a college course studying done at home except for one Saturday a month when he has to do a day at the college. at the moment our weekdays goes as follows get up anywhere between 7-8 am usually me first. as my pain is at its worst when I up OH usually gets sorts out breakfast when he gets up and has had his wash shower or whatever and taken the dog into our garden he is not at all a talkative person 1st thing so conversation is very limited, By 9.am he is in the room we call the office (our spare bedroom) studying this he dose till around 11.30 then he will go out and possibly have a snack lunch while he is out. gets back around 1pm by which time I have usually gone out for a bit to do whatever I'm going to be doing that day when I get back usually between 4-5pm I usually find him in the office again studying where he will have been since he got back around 1pm and he will be in there till around 5.pm from then on he is in the living room but is either watching telly, on his laptop, listening to music or asleep on sofa during all of this if you dare interrupt him to tell or ask him anything he looks at you with such a look that you just say no more the he has the cheek to say later when he ask you something well you never told me that. Its driving me mad. don't get me wrong I love him to pieces sometimes all you want is tell someone what has happened to you that day. impossible in my house.
