She continued to push through the oppressive husband, not accepting his desire to keep her down, but it took its toll. She took a job that he did not support, even though it was a wonderful opportunity. He was angry, she was excited. She would be traveling again and that meant getting away from him. She would be working for the organization she loved again, her first love.
All was going to be wonderful except once again, it wasn’t. The man she worked for turned out to be the worst person she had ever known. He too tried to keep her down, keep her in a box, more oppression. But it was worse than that. He was hurting the organization she worked for. She went through hell and back and finally he was fired. Upper management finally realized how aweful he really was. Only instead of thanking her they treated her like she was the problem. She risked everything to save her organization and they crapped on her as a result. She knew she did what was right but no one upstairs would admit it.
With work finally not as horrible she continued to try to save her marriage, even though it was a depressing mess. She had given up on any hopes of decency in men and became unhealthy and depressed.
