I feel like I’m going crazy here thinking about it. My husband and I were at my parents house for dinner. All was going well. We were talking, laughing and eating. But as soon as my sister got from her seat and announced her pregnancy. I noticed at first that my husband got quiet, didn’t get up to congratulate her since the rest of us did, and just kept staring at or towards her. I’m not entirely sure. I repeatedly asked if he was okay and he mumbled about feeling a bit sick. That was strange because he was perfectly fine that day. Literally, moments later he started throwing up.
Like I had no idea what was happening with him. He sat on the bathroom floor near the toilet just looking down and refusing to let me help him up to wash his face. I kept asking him if he was okay but no response. My family were worried about him and I had to take him home. I checked his temp and blood pressure but all were normal. Still complete silence on his part. He went to sleep shortly after and in the early morning at 5:30. I woke up to the sound of him crying in the shower. I rushed in asking if he was okay but still no response other than to tell me he needed a minute with himself.
I almost lost it demanding he explain what was going on and he told me he was just feeling overwhelmed…from what?!?! He’s not the type who gets stressed out from work or anything of the sort. This is just so strange and out of character for him. He got dressed and left then refused to even talk about it.
I can’t help but feel like this reaction was triggered by my sister’s pregnancy announcement since this all started right after she made it. What makes me feel so horrible is the fact that my sister once implied that my husband was her type and hoped to get someone like him. She has a boyfriend btw. This could be nothing but I can’t shake this weird feeling about what happened.
