I understand your misgivings, I really do. This ain't my first rodeo nor hers either, and we both have a fairly firm grasp on just how bad it can get
when you hitch your wagon to a loon, since we've both been there, done that, checked it off, and had the t-shirt stolen.
Now to be honest I HAVE heard her raise her voice once or twice, but not often, and I had it coming to me. That can really go either way, but one
thing it doesn't do is scare me. I've been attacked, even assaulted, by some of the best, and she doesn't get anywhere near that level of crazy. As
long as she remains coherent, then we're good. I don't much care if it's loud. Seriously - folks get ill tempered some times. It's a fact of life.
You just have to handle it. Sometimes they've even got a good reason for that, and you have to step back and examine it, Sometimes they DON'T have a
good reason for that, and you've got to find a way to get THEM to step back and examine that.
It's not until they go into psycho mode that you need to run for your life or back them down, one or the other. Having seen that in previous
relationships, I'm not nearly as prone to letting my teeth chatter over simple anger, justified or not. I've been on the receiving end of worse.
I'll bet you whatever you'd like to bet, however, that she'll never, ever try to snatch anything out of my hands, angry or not.
I can't yell around her at all, neither at her nor at anyone else. Luckily I'm not prone to fits of yelling - when I get ticked off, I go just the
other way, and get quieter. The woman is like a barometer. If I'm irritated, she picks up on that right away.and there's really no need for me to
yell about anything anyhow.
I think, based upon personal histories, that violence and crazy aren't going to be factors this time around. We've seen enough of that already,
elsewhere. Time to relax now.
