He Let His Mind Wander, Now People Will See It.

My husband has started a blog.  Oh I know you may recall that I actually made him a blog as a present; but its not that one.  He is still ignoring that one; but do I feel bitter?  Yes, yes I do, very bitter, more bitter than usual if you can believe that.

It is beautifully written, compelling and brutally honest.  If you want to understand the dark side of Autism and Depression I can heartily recommend Old Fat Cutter.

Unfortunately for him I am not being very supportive, as usual.  What kind of problems could I have with my husband’s blog.

  1. The name: Its a horrible name, it just sounds wrong to me, and it’s very self-depreciating.
  2. He didn’t ask me for help – I feel hurt and useless.
  3. I had to take a workshop but he just started and has done a beautiful job – I’m jealous.
  4. He got likes and followers so fast – so I’m jealous and insecure in my lack of success.
  5. To sum up the first part, I’m feeling jealous – which makes me feel petty & ashamed.
  6. He has such a low opinion of himself – What am I doing wrong?  I am the main person he communicates with and I have failed to tell the most incredible person I have ever met…    – so guilt.
  7.  He is still self harming – I am so selfish I just pile pressure on him – I am such a bitch, so self loathing.
  8. This list is all about me when he is in such pain – what in the hell is wrong with me? I hate me so much!
  9. Faith in a Higher Power can sustain you through the dark. – without me would he still be Catholic?   Have I failed to teach the kids about spirituality too? – My own faith is so strong how selfish of me to keep it to myself.
  10. He is so depressed – I am terrified that he is going to die, he is a better person than me, he is a much better parent, and I can’t live without him.

I can’t watch his videos; they trigger stims for me.  I hate reading his posts because they are so scary and horrible.  If you want the truth visit his site, but be prepared, his world is dark.

This post was supposed to be funny.

At this point I would like to draw your attention to all the things I have done to try & help my husband feel better:

  1. I have given him lots of jobs to do to make him feel useful.  It is not because I am lazy, shut up Mum if you are reading, which you aren’t because you lost the address and I am free.  Free to say and do whatever I please; well on my blog at least.
  2. I constantly tell him how to improve.
  3. I tell him very loudly so his hearing isn’t used up.
  4. I have tried poking, kicking, bops on the head, water spray and putting small, okay I admit it some quite large, dogs and cats on him.
  5. I have on multiple occasions yelled ‘Cheer Up, Cheer Up, Cheer up!’ while bopping him.

Nothing has worked.  Yet he accuses me of not being sympathetic!

Yesterday I also tried my technique on something else.  I banged my table and yelled ‘Clean up” at it.  And yet it did nothing!  I told it off for still being messy, and it continued to ignore me!

Is there something wrong with my technique!

Okay let’s get back on track I was intending on a separate post I was going to call;

Run. Hide, Cat Is In A Good Mood!

But I couldn’t do it because my evil husband stole all the footage and put it on You Tube and he wrote about it on his blog Family Reaction.  He is stealing my material now.  But the important lesson, see I care more about my readers, I care that you learn important safety tips that could save your life.  I love you.

What he didn’t tell you is:

The only thing more dangerous than Catherine in a bad mood is…

Catherine in a Good Mood!

 

Danger, run, hide, get away, protect your valuables.  Catherine is in a good mood and she’s going to have fun, no matter what it takes!

  1. i love refuting you point for point when youre down about something. and since aussie humour is still cryptic to me at times, im going to assume youre not entirely joking:

    “The name: Its a horrible name, it just sounds wrong to me, and it’s very self-depreciating.”

    actually i cant refute this. lets give you this one just to show im paying attention.

    “He didn’t ask me for help – I feel hurt and useless.”

    nonsense– without you the furniture would have killed him off ages ago! you have to ask yourself: “do i feel more useful creating a blog for my husband? or saving his life on countless occasions?”

    leave it to you to find a self-deprecating answer to that. ❤

    "I had to take a workshop but he just started and has done a beautiful job – I’m jealous."

    you had to actually learn how to do this stuff. sir gavin got it through osmosis… since this is a family-friendly blog. ❤

    "He got likes and followers so fast – so I’m jealous and insecure in my lack of success."

    more nonsense– he got your followers, who will only be checking your blog more often, on the return from his. this will only help your ad revenue.

    "I’m feeling jealous – which makes me feel petty & ashamed."

    ok, youre petty! (but only if you insist.) on the other hand, you have helped your husband in ways untold. in the long run this may actually save (and improve) his life.

    youve introduced your husband to countless new friends. youre the wife of the year. honestly, your only real fault is that you turn it all around to insult yourself. probably more of that famous aussie self-deprecating humour (and easy ways to get americans to do all the work of building you up– thats ok, not all of them find anything wrong with that…)

    "He has such a low opinion of himself – What am I doing wrong? I am the main person he communicates with and I have failed to tell the most incredible person I have ever met…"

    surely he can decode that last loving compliment. i found out how high his iq is today. even an entrant-level from mensa can crack that one.

    "He is still self harming – I am so selfish I just pile pressure on him – I am such a bitch, so self loathing."

    i already covered how this might actually save him.

    "This list is all about me when he is in such pain – what in the hell is wrong with me? I hate me so much!"

    i think this is classic case of victor/*victorian* (thank you…) this is secretly a thing about him, posing as a thing about him posing about a thing about you! (but im onto your game, its really about him…)

    "Faith in a Higher Power can sustain you through the dark. – without me would he still be Catholic?"

    oh, who do you think has more hope– a lapsed catholic with heartfelt conviction, or a "true" one with his convictions on loan? which direction do you really think hes moving in now? right, no worries!

    "Have I failed to teach the kids about spirituality too? – My own faith is so strong how selfish of me to keep it to myself."

    your own faith is so strong you let them find their own path, and believe in their ability to find it!

    "He is so depressed – I am terrified that he is going to die, he is a better person than me, he is a much better parent, and I can’t live without him."

    we wont allow it. if he fails we will stick his head in a jar, reboot him into a chromebook, and interface him with one of tabs new robot pals.

    no cheesy mel gibson quotes here, just the knowledge that against all odds, mell gibson is still making terrible films– and against even more odds, he recently made a pretty good one (i only went to it because i honestly didnt know mel gibson was involved.)

    odds like that, we can work with!

    also your husband is loose on the internet. at least on the internet, you cant crash into the furniture!

    didnt dumbledore say that love is the greatest amulet? ive always thought so. now sir gavin will have more protection than ever. thats the best we can do for now.

    love to you all ❤ but even more for alex. ❤ and its a great blog so far– youve taught him well!

  2. nothing to with sir gavin, but something urgent has come up– ive sent you an email “im very u—— and a little w——-.” if you can find it and reply to it, it might make me feel A LITTLE bit better. i will very rarely make this sort of request, this is… a truly bothersome thing.
