We all know that one person who can't sit still for a moment and is always making plans. But what happens when you're married to that person, and you're more of a homebody? 😅 Meet our 27-year-old protagonist, who's struggling to find a balance between his wife's endless plans and his need for some downtime. He's been diagnosed with depression, which affects his energy levels, and his weight isn't helping either. Let's dive into his story and see if he's being unreasonable or if his wife needs to pump the brakes on her planning. 🤔

Is It Too Much to Ask for a Lazy Day? 🛋️

Our tired protagonist is in a constant battle between wanting to spend time with his wife and needing some alone time to recharge. 😔 With depression and weight issues adding to his exhaustion, he's finding it difficult to keep up with his wife's non-stop planning. It's not that he doesn't enjoy their time together, but he's craving a break. A day with no obligations, where he can just relax and do (or not do) whatever he wants. But is he being selfish, or does his wife need to slow down and consider his needs? Let's see what the internet has to say about this situation... 💬
