Freaking out if he is 10 minutes late (or if you text him and he doesn’t reply right away)
Feeling disgusted with yourself: you’re too fat, too then, too old
Wondering who is this guy that you married anyway. Was any of it real?
After a rare happy moment with your husband, getting really, really angry and raging at him out of nowhere
