I often write a lot about my current relationship

Most of it is good, some of it bad; I always try to portray him positively. There are a lot of issues between the two of us and mostly we talk about preconceived attitudes and expectations and how they can impact on current relationships. We both try hard.

Except, possibly, maybe, things may not work out for us.

He does some amazingly altruistic  work and I don’t. But I take second fiddle to whatever he is asked (not required) to do;they often use them for searches. He is good at it. He will blow pretty much everything else away to try and niche in for the opportunity. He has made so many friends from these sort of voluntary activities; its not an area that I feel comfortable in.

He is a really good man. So worth it. But the fact of the matter is: I am seen as an optional extra in his life. I don’t want to be the afterthought.

Last night, hewasn’t at my place. He had a work meeting and I asked him to call me later. About 2.30 am I woke up to find a one line SMS, to the tune of him still being there. Good for them. Not good for me, as I was left wondering all night and a lot of this  morning where exactly he was and what he was doing.

Not good for him, either, as he hasn’t bothered to let me know directly that he is safe and that things are okay.

Overreacting much? Yeah, maybe. But put yourself in my shoes. I don’t trust statistics any more. If I don’t hear from somebody, after ill health, I assume that they are dead,and that they can’t follow up.

Don’t anybody tell me to get a grip!

The people I love are hard to comeby. They listen and they know and they empathise with my thoughts. The people that I love die and I never, never will quite get over it. I know the medical terms, I know the procedures, I know how it works.

My brain just surges into panic mode.

About quirkycharm

I like to think that I have a certain quirky charm but I am probably being optimistic. Acquired taste, perhaps, which many don't acquire. This is about my fifth blog out there. My hosting companies kept going out of business or my IT exhusband kept hacking into them and I would move again. I don't do twitter, I barely do facebook, I don't try and 'monetize' my blog. I love my husband, my grown children and my job and this particular incarnation of oversharing my life comes at a time when I am the most content that I have ever been. I write always, sporadically during the good stuff and exhaustingly during the bad.

    He loves you, he sounds like such a good man and he actually cares about the community (not just himself)… no guy is perfect, (only my 2c worth) but he’s still sounding like a keeper.
