I have plans to go away for a couple of days and I am nervous. Other than the time I was in the hospital, I have always had reservations about leaving my partner home alone. Even when I was hospitalized, I was worrying about what state the house would be in, when I returned. Going away on business, was causing an anxiety attack. For some reason, he prefers to BBQ when I am not home. The last time he BBQ’ed, I had to leave the a/c on high for hours to help clear the air. I also kept the windows wide open, & the fans running. Needless to say, he forgot to close the windows, which left all of that smoke from the BBQ inside, & I had trouble breathing. During the summer, I have to keep the a/c on, otherwise it is hard to breathe. I have asthma, which closes my lungs when under stress, or when the air quality is not good. The air was not good with all of the windows being opened and with the smoke entering the house. I tell him all the time that I worry that he is going to burn the house down one of these days, because he always forgets to pull the BBQ grill apart from the wall. He often goes down to the basement where his man cave is. It is much cooler down there and he doesn’t need the a/c down there. He often doesn’t think about all of the heat that is building upstairs. One time, I came home from visiting my sister and the house was so overheated that it took my breath away. He said he hadn’t turned the a/c on yet that day because he had been downstairs most of the day, where he doesn’t need the a/c on. I am not looking forward to leaving again.
