Male PMS is REAL!!!
Got delayed with impromptu company event, so when I arrived home to Fiance was already making dinner, one of his daughters doing her hw, the other one (poor thing) with a migraine. He’s running around – doesn’t handle stress well – while I try to soothe, set table and take care of the little one with headache. Just before we eat the little one runs to the bathroom and throws up. I happen to suffer chronically of migraines and know that migraines with the stomach issue runs in her family so that I expect, but he is (rolls eyes) shocked, starts blaming the throw up on the headache pills, and telling me not to hold the toilet button too long blah blah blah. Instead of focusing on the poor child or the fact that I’m holding on to it to ensure that everything flushes well, and with the other hand I’m holding the 10 yr. old head. I yell at him to either make himself useful and get water or go away… he goes away.. no water. breathe. I call the older girl to get me water. Tuck her into bed, her head is pounding but stomach is settled as she’s very tired now. I know how it works, her body is super tired with the headache, she’ll sleep it off and feel better. Come back to the living room, they are having dinner and I tell them what’s going on, while he’s still fighting me on weather she’s sick from pills or migraine. I give him tit for tat, cause we are both alphas and even if I’m a crier some times I don’t back down, and we’ve been together long enough to know what’s important, 5 minutes later we calm down it’s all good.
I wake her up a few hours later, she’s better, gets up, eats, showers, needs to do hw. Little one explains what she needs to do, part is in the computer online, oldest overhears and brings out the laptop and plugs it in, I see her plug it in. Dad didn’t quite see her, just saw her do something on the side and says “what did you do?!” Unfortunately, for my lovely 6″5′ man, it’s now almost 10pm, he got up at 5:30 for work, and has a job that he is on his feet all day and walks about 8 miles a day, he’s dead tired, so his voice and tone comes out in not the best way, the teen semi freaks and says “nothing”. Clearly the tone comes across as accusatory and she’s at the teen stage and an argument ensues, at which point I roll my eyes and jump in the fray because it’s just too late and I’m done with the BS today. They are both in the wrong. I tell her she clearly could just have answered and I tell her that he never listens to his tone of voice, it sounds bad and as if the person is doing something guilty. Clearly there is only one thing that someone can do on that side of the wall, and that’s plug in the darned laptop, duh. He tries to argue back, but to no avail. Argument ends with my final point being, are you PMS’ing?
Final point of the day?
