It was such a releafe to be honest with my husbend about all the stress preperation for thr trip was causing me. I also leveled with him about how hard no alone time for us was no me and how much i needed our quite time. my husbend and I have always been luckey in the fact that we do not have to talk to each other to be together we can talk but asying nothing for long peroids of time is ok to.we are so comfortabel to gether it is ok to just be. that is why it is so hard for us to have the constent sencery input of others in our house we over load very easly. we need the silance. then when we do speack it has meaning. my step son and his son were gone when I got home we had the house to ourselves all evening. 9 days of people is very scarey to me. all are vacations have been alone or with family we feel safe with. we do not be with any unsafe people. it helps my husbend mential ilness is not the same as mine but they complement each other we are each good at what the other is not so we protect each othere as long as no one is living in our safe space.
