For those who are RN/LPN or those going into nursing school
or are already in nursing school, and to all of the above I just listed, is it normal to be in a relationship where you're talked to the point you're crying?
This kind of isn't nursing related but it does have to do with nurses and nursing students who have spouses they go to for support. WHat's not nursing related is my mom was telling me the other day at a restaurant, "Michael makes me cry all the time. If you're not crying, you're not in a relationship" So I guess your spouse is supposed to make you cry? I've never heard of that. Michael is my step-dad.
Now, what is nursing related, in relation to what I just asked, I've seen comments on here about nurses/nursing students and their "hubbys" saying things that make them mad when they vent. Some of the comments I've seen on here like that make me think their husbands are not supportive whatsoever.
So, an article on here is an LPN is having issues with some RNs at her job. She vents to her husband at home. Husband isn't much help. How much insanity is the LPN going through? Home and work life are providing zero exit out of a frustrating problem. I don't know what any woman or male on here who is married to a man would consider not helpful from their husband but is it normal to be in that kind of relationship? If someone makes you cry and you waste your life away with that person who doesn't have any interest in trying to help you, you would continue to be with that person?
When my mom told me Michael makes me cry all the time, I looked at her like "WHAT?" as if the world was going to end tomorrow. Not in an angry, full of rage type look like a father, but more like "I thought he was the holy grail of husband for you!!! I thought he was Mr. Perfect. Never made you cry" What made her cry recently was he was so pissed at her about something that he was talking and talking and talking and talking in such a calm way that he "talked her ear off" that she just couldn't handle it and she started crying. And I guess it's not the first time she's cried because of him. Which was a real eye-opener because I thought he was mister perfect/a womans man. What every woman wants.
Anyway, I was just wondering if what she's saying is maniacal/unhealthy or a part of life?
