It's not me, it's you.

Today was a nice day. I had the day off. The weather outside was beautiful, and I got to spend some time with my wife. I drove her to an eye doctor's appointment today, and several times, we had a nice opportunity to just talk. It was one of those rare "normal moments" that I live for. The time when we can just be husband and wife together.

Well, that changed on the way home. Some time during the drive home, my wife had brought up the subject of counseling. And I tried ever so gently to suggest that she might benefit from going back to counseling. I also suggested that she'd do well by talking to somebody that specialized in bipolar disorder. And at that very moment, my wife was mystically replaced with a completely different person...

"Listen, I'm going to tell you this, and you aren't going to like it, but here it is. I keep telling you this, but you don't seem to understand it. The reason I am this way, it's because of you. You don't seem to get it. I'm just not happy being with you. One of these days, I just need to make the decision to leave you, then I'll be happy".

After that, there was no more talking the rest of the way home.
