That's at least part of our problem. I wonder how long it's been going on. I also wonder how long it will take for his treatment to work. Finally, I wonder if he'll stop doing the laundry and if I'll get a better sex life. Still more questions than answers.

What is he mixing lights and darks? Can he iron too?

He does a great job with laundry. If he stops being all nest-y, I'm going to have to start hiring staff. :D

I'm trying to keep my expectations low wrt the testosterone thing. My ultimate fantasy is that I start getting calls to go to his office for "lunch" or that he starts showing up at mine. But, really, I'm expecting that it'll just make him a little less sensitive.

well, if he was going through a box of tisseus every day (think John Boehner) I would be over that and telling him to man up

And would it be okay for a man to tell a woman the same thing? Are only women entitled to express strong emotions?

I was trying to be funny MST, actually my SO tears up very easily - he is also outspoken as hell and tough as nails, but he shows his emotions

"I've never heard a woman wish that her man would be less sensitive."

Lol! No way. I'm not wishing for him to be less sensitive. I'm just afraid that's going to be the case. My house is peaceful. DH and I don't fight. We argue occasionally. We work in the same field so we disagree a lot about politics, parenting, current events, but these are intellectual occurrences. I don't know what to expect of upping the testosterone levels of our relationship. Yes, I want more sex. No, I don't want more chest beating. But I've been open and honest about my worry. All I can do now is wait and see.
