I just wanted to let you know that even though your honey may be “grumpy”
with you- in reality these folks are spending 24-7 acting the tough guy
image with their engines, crews, etc. Sometimes it is hard to shift gears
from firehouse mentality to home mentality.
Also if they are able to shift gears they may simply be telling you all
those bad things that they tough out during the day. So they may simply be
letting go with the only safe person there is- the one they love. So
instead of hearing all the good things (which are okay to share) you may
hear all the bad things because you are the only person they will truly
feel comfortable trusting.
If you love them you’ll learn how to deal with the fire season. Just
remember having a good support group for yourself is the best present you
can give them.
I’ve got a firefighter of my own,
