I made a post about a situation and victim puke a couple weeks back. Got advice and comments here, and applied them. I've been holding frame and applying STFU when applicable. My relationship with my wife is uptrending.
However, last night, we were hanging out. She was telling me about some genetic test she took, its results, and her shock about how accurate it was about her family ailments. I playfully bantered with her and she was into it and kept on about the test. I kept bantering with her playfully and laughing with her, then all of a sudden she blew up and called me a rude, condescending asshole. She told me to change the subject and she was pissed. I laughed at her again and told her she was silly and over reacting and she got angrier. I calmly got up and told her that I am done with this conversation and that I have to leave early for work, so I was going to bed. I went to bed and she came in a half hour later storming around. She said she was mad at me for not dropping the subject when I did (all I said was she was over reacting a half hour before and laughed at her), and she was sleeping in one of the guest rooms. I ignored her and went to sleep. I got up this morning and left for work and didn't speak to or acknowledge her.
I think since she can see me on an uptrend, she threw me a nasty shit test to see if I was for real and I think I passed it. Before I would have apologized and felt bad about her mood, but this time I didn't care and actually saw her as a giant, ranting teenage girl (she's 42). Btw, she is in day 3 of shark week. Thoughts?
