I have been married for 24+ years to a great guy. He is a decent human being, but not at all connected to me as a person. I am a Labor and Delivery RN in a high stress envrionment; he is a retired police detective. Our kids are 21, 19,and 15. We have many similarities as far as our basic upbringing goes. But I am a book reader and a soul searcher and he is black and white. Our second child is leaving the nest in 3 weeks and I am depressed and overloaded with the death of my closest brother; and stuff at work; he doesn't seem to think that matters. I have been treated this way our entire marriage. I am at the point where I am starting to feel I don't have the right to an opinion or my feelings. Has anyone been here? What did you do? Was it a good or bad decision? FYI; my family would compleely understand because they have run this gamut with me.
