My answers...

...stop the conversation or activity I am in and get to the bottom of what just annoyed me. If it has a carry over effect with me I will work it out alone on the heavy bag (punching) until I cant move my arms and legs from fatigue.

...Cry. I will retreat if I can but ultimately I choose to cry rather than bottle my emotions and wake up my PTSD. Its better for everyone. sweet to a fault. I will finish what I am doing and get to bed or take a nap.

...I know my business around money. I have been taught well. Though I control the money in my marriage and manage all of the investments, move money around, and constantly watch the markets and am advised on future trends...when my hubby needs a check I hand him one.

...My husband's perception of me. I stay fit, dress well, eat right, and make sure I look as nice as possible for the love of my life. The specter of losing him terrifies me. He gets pissed when I tell him that, so we have to agree that he does not know what it's like trying to manage a normal life while co-existing with the demons of PTSD. I know it is ridiculous, but it's something I have to do.

...I am more than a handful around sex because I love it! That is all "his" fault because I was a virgin until he corrupted me 😉. He, too, is extremely fit, muscular, tall, and able to handle what I have to give. We still wreck a bedroom when the kids are not home.

@TexChik My father was a battlefield Marine Veteran but he was violent, drunk most of the time and not sensitive to children or even to women. I wish he had been like your adoptive father, it would have made a huge difference.

@cherokeepatti aww! I’m so sorry . Daddy retired as a Colonel. He saw lots of battlefield PTSD and watched those who found a way to cope with it . Daddy did not talk about what he did and his friends/ men really respected him . They told me all about him, and liked me instantly because I was always in his hip pocket and I said yes sir
If he asked me to do something . He was so good to me. 🥹

@Blanchy not for women who want to have fun in the moment. 😅

@ViciDraco True if you just want to date but if you find a woman to settle down with, then it will benefit her future too 🫶🏻

@Blanchy that's the logical thinking, yes. You might also be more future minded like me
