hi im 44 and happily married to a wonderful man.recently i misinterpret every innocent comment he makes as somehow questioning my perfection as wife and mother. he could say will i bring kids to school ? and i would think maybe he thinks i dont want to and i would always do it. i dont like when he compares kids to animals eg well emma you;re a little monkey!! every day speak. i dont like the image it conjures up.any aggressive or language that is violent i dont kike that either.after hearing an innocent comment i might be upset for an hour or so but my husband would always reassure me and im flying again.i think i have given words far too much power over me.i probably should accept them that they are only words that should be let go,the more i focus on this the worse it probably is.i feel perfectly healthy otherwise
Welcome to ehealthforum,
The remarks made do not seem to be targeted at you or kids specifically and these do not seem to be hurtful (as these are day-to-day comments used by folks all around the world). If you feel you are feeling sensitive and reacting adversely and if these are affecting your day-to-day activities, then you should consider taking help from your doctor. You might also consider going ahead with getting counseling done to help you. All the best.
