Nycindie - No, Piper has never really understood me - though he does try. I do think he's tired of trying but he hasnt ever totally given up. In the moment, his frustrations prevent him from being understanding and he struggles a lot with seeing situations from other people's points of view. He pretty much finds me to be overly emotional, impossible to please, and neurotic. I don't get that feedback from others, but then again, I don't live with them. So I don't know...maybe he's right. I can't objectively assess.
Thanks for the supporting comments and insights...I really appreciate them.
