What Do You Do When....

He has said he has had enough? He indicates he is miserable? That his week of decompression can't come fast enough?

It breaks my heart to hear how down and fed up he is. Sometimes I forget that he is going through one hell of an emotional roller coaster too. I just want to reach through the phone and hug him... yet all I can do is say what seems like cliche things in hopes that they will help.

He was in such a great mood the other day, we were laughing so hard we were crying. Today he was so tired he could barely listen let alone respond. He told me how broken down his body feels and I can tell his morale is too. UGH


  1. my boy was really depressed/angry/upset/mad as well. :( UGH. I don't ever know what to do...those type of phone calls ruin my mood too, and I just sit there and listen and anything I say gets shot right's like they gotta get over the humps on their own.
    Sucks that we can't do much to help..just have them know that we are here for them.

  2. Sorry you had a similar situation. It kills me that we can't fix it. I hope both our men can pull out of this little funk they are in soon.

  3. I wish I had some great words of advice for you. I think in these situations all you can do is be there and listen. It doesnt seem like much but it probably means the world to him.
    Boyfriend hardly ever lets me see when he is in those kinds of those moods but when he does, it just breaks my heart.
    I hope things get better soon!
