being sick with a cold or anything else, gets exacerbated with RA.. so it will probably take you longer to get over everything as well.. we completely understand here.. my hubby hurt my feelings the other day when he asked how I was doing, and I said, "I hurt"..(now mind you, I try to not complain much.. if anything, I have maybe told him "I hurt" 5 times since we've been together) 'cause I don't want him or anyone else to think I'm a complainer or I can't handle something.. well, he said, "You always hurt".. that made me angry.. so I said.. "You know what?! I work 10 hours a day, I take care of you, 3 kids, the house and the dog.. I clean, cook, do laundry, run errands, take kids to practices, grocery shop, put away the groceries, walk the dog, go over homework and if there is time for me do something for me... and NEVER do I complain about
any of it.. regardless of how I feel.. and you have the gall to tell me, 'you always hurt'?!?!" He didn't have much to say after that..
So come here all you want and vent away.. we literally feel your pain!
