Failure to Communicate

FMSL's picture

My DH is not good at communicating. No, he flat out sucks at communicating. He's terrible at communicating with anyone when it comes to personal situations. I know he CAN communicate. He's a very effective communicator at work, but with family and friends...terrible. BM is also horrible at communicating. First, she's just plain dumb and second, she's a ghetto-rat felon. BM can't put the simplest adult thought into a clear sentence. Consequently, SD12 is a horrible communicator. She has both genetics and environment going against her. It drives me absolutely crazy every day. We have SD fulltime while BM has abandoned. The problem I have is even though DH & BM have always sucked at communicating, it is "CLEARLY SM's FAULT" that SD has been with me fulltime for 5 years and she still can't grasp the concept of personal interaction. So sick and tired of being the scapegoat.

I am in the same exact predicament. SD15 full-time and a SO who can't communicate. I try and try and just give up from exhaustion. I too have no advice - just sympathy. Sorry it sucks.
