Caged?? Is this normal WS behavior?
I can only speak for me, but yes, I felt very caged. I am not saying it wasnt warrented, but I went from a very independant woman who didnt have to ask for permission to do anything at any time.
To a woman who couldnt even walk into another room without it being an issue. Saying that a WS world becomes totally enclosed is an understament.
Again, not saying that it isn't warrented, but our whole lives is now under someone elses view. Our computers, phones, cars, friends, they are all optional now. If we are asked to give them up - we have to.
I became desperately lonely for a good 2 1/2 years and i had a really hard time with it. I felt like a repremanded teenager that had to ask mommy to use the phone to call someone - and i was grounded so there was no way i was going to ask to go out to play.
I know that sounds horrible, but I am just being honest on how it felt.
I understand the need for it all, I understood that i put myself there, but it didnt change that I went from one style of living to the complete opposite in a matter of hours.
The difference is that I never demanded to do something, I never just up'd and left. I never put my feelings before DH's in the situation - I suffered only here when i needed to vent out.
I think feeling caged is normal, acting out and stuff - that's not really normal.
