I'm getting wordy here and having a hard time getting to the point, I'm sorry.
My problem is that I can't seem to interest Michael in ANYTHING. I like riding my bike, I like going for walks, I like going to stores (not necessarily buying anything...), I'd love to learn to kayak or go canoeing or camping or anything...I like to do lots of things. The problem is that I present an idea to Michael and he just shrugs it off. If I make him come with me to do anything I feel like I'm dragging him around. I'm not sure how to deal with this because the staying in the apartment doing nothing is driving me stir crazy. I work all week and the weekends are a welcome break from working with with my students (who all happen to have behavioral challenges and/or emotional disabilities)...but each weekend is spent with me sinking into a depression of my own over my inability to find something we can do.....As for Michael, he doesn't have a job so he is at home 24/7. He says he gets bored...but that doesn't inspire him to do anything else. It can't be healthy
I'd like to blame this all on Michael's depression, but he hasn't been depressed every single weekend.
I dunno, I'm not expecting a solution, I just need to vent.
