I'm tired of my DH not HEARING me. He pretends like, "Sorry, I was watching TV", working on the computer, (self-employed w/ my help) or whatever excuse. I can have a whole conversation, he doesn't hear me. I feel so IGNORED, God forbid if I'm not listening to him! Not that he gets mad or angry, but as soon as he speaks, I'm right there listening, like a little puppy. He's a GREAT husband, honestly...in every other way, but I'm starting to think that this is ridiculous. Isn't COMMUNICATION like the 1st thing that every self-help book, article, always says you need to have? I just wanted to know if any of you ladies out there feel the same...so lonely, no one to talk to, BECAUSE when you talk to the one you REALLY want to talk to, you have to talk to others on the phone or whatever. But it really doesn't give you what you need, because what you need is your SO to 'listen' and take you in and CARE about YOU?Answer Question

RanaAurora, you know, there are plenty of terms that refer to specific disabilities that I would never "throw around" in an inappropriate context because I would never want to hurt someone's feelings. I've said "what are you deaf?!" more times in my life that I could ever count & never thought twice about it. If you hadn't made that statement, I don't think it would've ever occurred to me that it could be hurtful. I'm glad you said that!
