Honeybun's Step Back
Yesterday evening was a wreck. We'd gone to visit my parents, and it was a great time. However, Honeybun got a little too tipsy. He was fine when we were there and fell asleep peacefully on the drive home. Once I parked, I woke him with a kiss and offered to help him inside. When he stood up, I noticed wetness on his crotch. "Did you...piss yourself?" I should have waited until we got inside, as he got embarrassed. I reached out to help him balance, and we both collapsed to the concrete. I scraped my knee.
Inside, he got attitude. At first he tried to blame me, but I shut that down quickly. He'd been doing so well monitoring his drinking, and this was a step back. I reminded him that he gets emotional when he drinks, and we could discuss in the morning with clear heads. He called himself a loser, cried that he was holding me back, and that I deserve better. He needed some time alone, so he slept on the couch. I couldn't sleep.
This morning he apologized, but he knows we'll talk about it this evening. His health-insurance starts soon - it's time for a therapist.
