One fine day I decided to share my bitter experiences with my husband expecting moral support from him to help me fight with my mental block and overcome it. When I narrated it, there was no reaction from him. I was disappointed but relieved that I had put down my burden and I would become normal in the due course of time. I went to sleep with a lighter heart the following nights. But what followed shortly was a bolt out of the blue.
My husband started doing the same to me while I was sleeping. I was completely shocked and when I questioned his behavior, his answer killed my soul. Oh, you were quiet when he touched you in your sleep but if I do so you seem to throw a tantrum. You said you were not able to shout at him then but you create so much drama when I touch you.” I tried to explain by saying “Please don’t do what he did, it’s scary”. To this, his reply was “Probably you liked all that and that is why you never raised your voice against him.”
