I longed to be with my 59 60 Alone Together friends back home and enjoy the warm feeling they gave me. My married life here was lonely and filled with arguments. What made it worse was that we never resolved our issues. Gavin didn’t believe in dwelling on the past and expected me to simply move on, but of course I couldn’t. Our problems didn’t magically disappear. Instead they piled up and started to make me resent him. I didn’t want this to happen, but it was unavoidable. Many times I tried to talk to Gavin but he wasn’t interested.
After all, he knew how to live here and I didn’t. He thought he had to control my actions so we’d be able to survive in Australia. 6. The Honeymoon: Rigid Thinking! The destination for our honeymoon was Byron Bay. We rented a house and spent our days either strolling through the village, relaxing on the beach or reading books in the little garden. It was nice but different. Last time we stayed in Byron we weren’t married and I was able to be myself. Now I felt that I had to do things in accordance with Gavin’s expectations.
All I remember from those first years is that I felt scared, confused and totally alone. A quick look on how things have improved over the years I understand now that Gavin needs a well-structured safe home environment where things are in place. He needs to have chill-out time and finds it difficult to deal with change, unpredictable situations and stressed people. All those factors increase his anxiety and can lead to a meltdown. I’m aware that due to AS he experiences a lot of stress and can’t absorb much more.
