Where do I begin? I suspect that my husband has a host of psychological problems. The most damaging to our relationship is his distortion and exaggeration of the truth, particularly when talking about my behavior. He claims I yell when I don't, he exaggerates my body language, tone of voice, hostility level, etc. He is so frustrating to talk to I would *like* to scream at him, but I do not. He claims that because of *my* behavior, I need psychological help. I believe that I am in reasonable psychological health. He overreacts to many things and I believe he's never matured. His relationship with his mother is more like a husband/wife and I feel like I've married the two of them. They treat each other like children, both very needy. I am not a needy person. He's very compulsive, obsessive about some things, self centered, insecure, blames, I guess I could go on and on. He's very willing to have discussions but they end up like an emotional tennis match. No yelling or outbursts or anger, but draining. We both want to work on our marriage but I am so emotionally tired of dealing with him and our conversations only focus on how all of this upsets *him*. What can I do, if anything, until we can get into counseling? I'm exhausted.
