He tells people things that I do, but he tells family members and friends! I just told a bunch of people who don't actually know him!

These ads are on both sides of the post and are covering up alot of the post. I can't see who is posting at all. I don't mind the ads at the top, but these interfere with reading the post.

I understand. Did you understand that you can use AdBlock to get rid of the ads?

What browser are you using? Did this annoyance just start or has it been on going?

My version of Adblock only blocks adverts that have already appeared not new ones.

CarolPa; we all slip up sometimes. We are mortals, perfectly capable of making mistakes. Just ask my wife. I have spoken of things that I shouldn't have. Fortunately, I don't do it nearly as often as I once might have. We all make mistakes. The trick is to learn from them.

Besides, you were doing this thing called venting. I once made the mistake about venting to my wonderful MIL (and she is really great) about something DW did to make me angry. Yeh, MIL thought our marriage was in trouble and called to talk to DW. That didn't go over well at all.

The point is, that though much of what I had said came from pure frustration, I said things that I wouldn't have said with a cooler head, and things that I didn't even mean or believe.

Stress, be it from anger, frustration, fear, or whatever can short-circuit our normal feelings, and our true thoughts, helping us to say things we shouldn't say, and probably don't even mean.

You didn't go so far as to say anything bad about your DH, just that you didnt' care to get punched while he was sleeping.

Learn from this experience, and let him know that you are sorry for breaking the privacy rules. You'll work it out.

Chief, Carol didn't slip up. There's a reason this thread is called "Venting". We don't judge, we sympathize, empathize, maybe offer advice, or just listen. There's no right or wrong!

Carol, hopefully your DH can get his problem figured out!

I only shared this with you because actually, I thought it was funny! He was mad that I shared it because he doesn't want anyone to think he's a bad person, but he's over it. We get over things very easily. I don't think this will ever go so far as to actually hurt me. If it did, he would feel very bad about it.

Carol, be sure that DH knows that we don't think he is a "bad person" how could we, we don't even know him. ;)
From what you told us, he isn't awake or aware of what he is doing, so how could we think ill if him? I hope he understands that you just thought if was "funny" and those that responded were only trying to help you figure out why it was happening. :). You know we have had this happen a couple of times too! We have each smacked the other while sleeping, usually just flailing in our sleep. Hmmmm.........at least I think so! lol!

Shrek often kicks me and I have been known to punch him in the back. We are not responsible for what happens in our sleep. I've also punched the bed cane, that usually wakes me up, hitting that hurts!
