my husband is sucking the life right out of me

I cannot communicate with my husband. I am always wrong, have terrible ideas, don't make sense, told I'm stupid, spend "all of the money" , terrible housekeeper, terrible mom, the list goes on and on! As I sit here writing this I am near tears with a big lump in my throat. Please help!

I'm sorry you're feeling this way. Good communication is so important in marriage. It's probably something you both need to do some focused work on. Do you think he would admit to needing help in this area? Would he be open to some counseling?

There's a lot of great books on communication in marriage. One of the best is "Love and Respect" by Dr. Emmerson Eggerichs. You could probably find a copy online somewhere or maybe at your local library. Focus on the Family also has some free articles about communication and conflict on their website. You might want to check that out.

Hope that helps!
