It's during this time where I call or email my husband begging him to come home to provide me some relief. It's during this time that my patience gets worn thin. It's during this time where I am simply beaten down. I lose all capability to experience emotion - no happiness, no sadness, no anger, no impatience. Just blank, spent, flat. Kind of like Goldie Hawn in Overboard when all she does is say "Buh buh buh buh." (Click here for the clip. It's classic).
I have found some ways to mitigate these difficult hours.
