The Verdict: Overwhelmed or Overreacting?

So, here's the dilemma: a tired, pained mom, an unhelpful husband, and a pair of scissors. She cuts off half her hair in a moment of overwhelming exhaustion and frustration. Was she overreacting or simply responding to an unbearable situation? Let's see what the internet has to say about this hair-raising saga...😮💇‍♀️✂️

"Cutting hair caused marital drama? Time to communicate and compromise."

"OMG as somebody with chronic pain myself I must say that you are not crazy and NTA. You husband is lacking some serious notion of empathy. First of all, this 'the baby was asking for mommy' is the oldest trick in the book for men to get rid of the responsibilitie to care for a child who is not happy. And this gets more evident with the fact that he got down to play with the child that was 'happy and having fun'. Secondly, it's your hair! You can style it the way you like and your husband should just keep any dislikes to himself. Again, as if that was not enough, you have serious pain and that long hair was a constant problem. I've done similar things after many days in pain and nobody said I was crazy because, well, empathy. So no, you are not an ass or crazy. You are just an overwhelmed mother with a serious condition and low support from your partner. He, on the other hand, was a great ass." 😡
