Many of you know I have the unfortunate circumstance of having to live with my husband until I finish school and file for divorce. Comes down to finances. Anyhow, eventhough we have reached an agreement..living together has been PURE HELL. He is callous, rude and unsensitive to the fact that his desire to quit on the marriage breaks my heart daily. Anhow...communication is a nightmare and all we do is fight. I finally had enough and pulled out a therapeutic suggestion a counselor had made to us years before. I told him that from now on, unless its an emergency, we have to communicate in writing to each other. We leave a notebook on the kitchen table and write messages to each other, rather than talking to each other. (we do not have children, its just us and our pets). We really need to only communicate about the basics and essentials of living together. Its awkward, annoying, more time consuming...but I'm hoping it lessens the intense stress. I honestly didn't know what else to do. I guess what I'm looking for is feedback from others who can relate. Is this just stupid? I feel stupid. But I'm so tired of fighting. Communication with my husband is torture..he lies, he never says what he means, he never means what he says, he conveniently forgets everything...at least this way, its in writing.

I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
