I had a really good talk with a friend yesterday. She's in the process of getting a divorce from her abusive husband. So often I think I should just leave Mike. Aspergers or not, I shouldn't have to deal with emotional and verbal abuse on a daily basis. I know he has improved so much since I first met him, but he's still nowhere near where he needs to be.
Today he sent me a couple of nice text messages. A couple of weeks ago I asked him to start sending me two positive texts a day and he does it most of the time. They're usually just something like "Have a wonderful day" or "I miss you", but I really appreciate them. I need that tiny bit of blue skies to get through the rest of the time with him so I can see that glimmer of hope...
Maybe someday soon he'll be able to verbalize kind words.
Last night I watched the movie He's Just Not That Into You. It made me think of my husband. He just doesn't seem to be that into me. Sad. I know he loves me, I just wish he could/would show it.
