I have always been very independent and when I could not get my thoughts out I wrote because of my apraxia of speech. My family of 8 brothers and sisters and my husband and son knew how frustrated and upset I was. I did all my own stuff and I felt I had to . They all would just want to do it and I said no. They were all just wanting to do for me to help me. They never wanted me alone and I just wanted to be alone to figure things out. I am blessed in so many ways of family and am thankful and I know they are in this journey with me and thank god every day.
Im blessed to have a wonderful husband. He seems a little scared at times. But makes me feel alive and loved. Thanks to GOD
My husband is extremely overprotective too, he won't even let me drive because of my "road rage" and doesn't want my heartbeat go off the rails. I too hate being dependent on him, but I think he loves that about me, because I'm willing to let go of who I was and is forced to accept the person I have become.
Yes, that's what my husband does too. Oh well, some husbands don't even care and here we are asking not to be smothered, crazy !
