Hugs, Bunny. Some of what you shared reminded me of my first husband. He was abusive to me and our son before he died ... eventually I got to a place of being glad he was away from his own demons as well.

Seek peace, and pursue it - Psalm 34:14b

No hijack at all!  FiancĂ© doesn't have PTSD or an abusive upbringing but obviously has issues regarding medical care.  I would like him to get to the root of it for both of our sakes since we are not getting any younger and there is a strong likelyhood of more medical appointments in our future.

He has been really trying hard to make it up to me since but while I appreciate he acknowledges it I would rather he work on not letting it happen again.
You will forever be my always.

Communicating to him. Letting him know it's not ok because it caused you distress. If it happens again take yourself to the appointments, and see how fast it stops.

I get it - I take my elderly father to his cardiac appointments, which is very triggering for me.  Although a much different relationship, my father is grumpy and unappreciative even on his best days.

Despite being told how distressing it can be to be in our shoes, I don't think that others can ever fully understand the impact of what we go through.

Wishing better days ahead for you, Trying.
Have I told you lately how much I love you?

I will never forget taking care of Big Guy, and he was treating me awful.....I flipped out, said I don't get were down right flirty with the nurses and yet you're treating me like shit!!! His response was priceless ha ha ha...."but woman, I had to be nice, they were wiping my ass...." as I was snapping on the rubber glove to do just that. Needless to say, I might have gotten a little rough, and he saw the light 😂...hugs to you, and hope you're able to work it out
You hate me don't you? Yup, so much I married you twice! :)
