Something that continuously bugs me, is having to tell my wife that her mood impacts on my mood. Obviously, when she is being upset or angry, she can just get over it, but I can't, as my brain just won't let me. I try and tell her that she needs to simply be nice, and mindful of how she says things around me, and basically stop being grumpy lots of times during the day. My stress levels are already high, without anything else going into my jar, and when my wife is angry, stressed or upset several times a day, then I have little room for absorption of her mood. Generally, a few mood swings and I'm then set in an angry mood for the day, or atleast a few hours. This then makes things worse, as I don't want to talk, and need space to calm myself down, though I keeping either getting pushed by her to do something, or go somewhere, or she is moody again, angry or whatever the case. It is really hitting home with me again why most people with PTSD just end up single, as having stressors around us, especially within our daily lives, just makes an already difficult daily life, much worse. I can explain it until the cows come home to her, but she doesn't have PTSD, thus she just can't comprehend why her moods set my moods off. Is this just me, or do others have similar experiences?
