I only ever use the credit card if I check it out with her first. She makes it sound like I'm a spendthrift.
"I don't think you should come here."
"Like I shouldn't live there?"
"Not right now. Give Daddy your key."
"That's ridiculous. I'm not doing that."
"Promise me you won't come here unannounced then."
Her conclusion at the end of this part of the conversation was that we needed some space. Clearly everything I've said to her in the past month is of no importance.
"You need to take some adult responsibilities."
I'm not the only one who is acting like a child.
"We need to talk about school."
"What about school?"
"You can't treat me this way and expect me to be your supporter."
Awesome. Really great. Is this a bribe? Is she trying to force me to be nice to her? I honest to god CANNOT be nice to her right now. Everytime I'm around her, or even just hear her voice on the phone my hands and throat clench up and I want to scream. Hence the reason for our space: I don't want to make things worse for the future. I want to have the space to get over my anger now so that we can start from a better place in a little while. But what does it matter- she doesn't care about the space I've suggested numerous times. It's her suggestion of space that matters.
"What you've done to me has caused me great damage."
How inconsiderate of me.
Anybody know any good therapists?
