So, I just have to say something about Barrera's wife's traumatic event. I have a very strong feeling I have gone through a similar thing with my ex-wife.
Here we go...
I used to work in a lumberyard (not some Home Depot crap, a real lumberyard) 12 hours a day, 6 days a week. I'd come home exhausted, and didn't have much time to spend with her. I took all the OT I could get because I wanted to provide for my family, and she quit working when we first got married. She kept pressuring me to find a 'regular' job so I can spend more time with her. I loved my job, so I stuck with it.
Then one day, she barrels through the lumberyard in my truck, while I'm working. She opens the door and falls out crying. I was freaked out, so I dropped my customer and ran to her. She said she couldn't move, she couldn't think, and was totally hysterical. I didn't know what the hell was going on, so I tossed her in the truck and ran her to the ER. They couldn't find anything
wrong with her. They said she may have had an anxiety/panic attack or something, but she totally denied any anxiety. I, on the other hand, was very skeptical.
We were pretty heavy into church, and she had it pinned as a demonic attack. Super-long story, slightly abbreviated -- it turned out she was crying for attention, and would do anything to get that attention. I ended up finding another job (she wrote my resume, and applied for me for several positions). Get this, 5 years later, she's still 'battling' an unknown condition. We're divorced and she's gone completely psycho.
Seriously, the whole phone call Barrera had with his wife was like a horrible flash-back for me. I really hope for his sake, he bolts. Just keep runnin Dan.
I know no situations are 'exactly' the same. But what do you guys think about it. Do you think she's bogus, or what? I believe it was her test to see if he would be devoted enough to run home to her. She said she was "DYING." And then she says it was anxiety? If she is bogus, she owes Dan a freakin hell of a career. She totally messed with his head for that fight. According to another thread, he's not even looking at fighting right now. He's working... sounds familiar.
