My Dear Husband (DH) is handling all his emotions about my diagnosis primarily by expressing anger and assigning blame. I am not strong enough to endure his coping mechanism. So … I invented a code word that when I say it he knows he must take his attitude elsewhere or lose my company for the duration. I have lost my temper in response to the negative energy, which I can’t do without two steps back from peace.
How do we help our care givers troubled in this way?
