I need to change the way I react to my son and I don't know how or what I should do or say. Normally when someone treats me badly I simply don't have anything to do with them. But that isn't possible here because we work together. I have tried to find other work (long story) but that hasn't happened so we are stuck with each other. The problem is that he will take his frustrations about things out on me. He is a truck driver and seems to think I should be sitting with the phone in my hand and the computer on 24/7 in case he needs something. If he calls and can't get hold of me because I am talking to one of my other children for ten minutes like I was last night he gets angry. Sometimes I feel like he considers me an extension of him not an individual. That I am only here to take care of him and his needs. He is very polite and easygoing with his friends and strangers. He'll get mad and explode about something to or at me. Then next time I see or hear from him it's as though nothing had happened. While I'm still crushed and pulling myself back together. I'm not good at confrontations and have a very thin skin. My mother always said I wear my heart on my sleeve and get my feelings hurt too easily. When I'm critized or I've done something wrong I feel the whole world is coming to an end. I know that's rediculous. So that's why I'm asking all of you what I can do to not be that way. Sorry this is so long. Hope you can help me.

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips.
