That's WONDERFUL news!!!!! I had to laugh to myself when I read that .. you "threw the book at him"!!
What was the name of the book??? I'm sure there are lots of other folks that would like to know. Hopefully, now that he understands, some of your stress will be lifted and you can start moving out of that nasty flare.
I'm really happy for you!!!! I hope things continue to go well.
Thanks gals..........we shall see how serious he is, but hopefully he got the messagie.
Patti, the name of the book is "Fibromyalgia....An Essential Guide for Patients and Their Families, by Danied J Wallace and Janice Brook Wallace.
I found it at Borders. They have so many out now, and its hard to choose. But this is the first book I bought after I was dx. Is endorsed by the National Fibro Foundation. You can probably find it on Amazon.
Will keep u all posted
Have a great day everyone
That is great news and I loved your story- I think this will bring you closer and you can now get the support that you have needed from him!
Sue, If I could jump up & down, I would. I am really, really happy for you. Wow, just the idea that he sat all night & read is so touching. When my husband "got it" I was so relieved. He didn't say anything, he is a very quiet man, he just started doing things, like sweeping the floor & when I would say "oh I'm sorry I should have tried to stay on top of that" he just said "no, you go lay down, this isn't going to hurt me". It felt so good. As I said before I am so happy for you. Love & hugs, Denise
PS I also had to laugh when Patti said "you through the book at him", You go girl.
I have: Fibromyalgia, ME/CFS, Holt-Oram Syndrome, nasal allergies, food allergies, depression, TMJ, anxiety Married to a wonderful supportive husband & between us we have 4 children & 7 grandchildren As apples of gold in silver carvings is a word spoken at the right time for it. Prov. 25:11
Thanks ladies.........this weekend was very nice, veryyyyy nice. He called me from the office on Sat afternoon and said lets go out to dinner. We went to a very nice Italian restaurant, and it was a nice conversation, mostly about our boys. We went to early church, then he had to return some shirts to the mall. He even told me to go sit and order a Starbucks if the walking was too much for me, so I did just that. This is like a dream. We came home and, usually when he is around, I dont like to lay down. But I did, and when he popped into the bedroom, he was very quiet and quietly closed the door.
WHO IS THIS MAN?????? Yikes, . I hope no one pinches me and I wake up!!!!!!!!!!!
LOL... sorta like.. who are YOU and what did you do with my husband???
Oh Sue, enjoy this!!! You deserve it!!! I'm sure he kinda feels like he's been a pretty big shnook where you & your health were concerned. I know this may sound kinda crazy, but you're going to have to get used to being treated the way you should.
I'm so lucky that my husband understands my problem.. but I know there are times he wants me just to "get over it".. especially when his band is playing and I can't make it to a show. (that's been happening alot). But aside from not feeling well enough to go, one of the band wives is an absolute JERK and I can't stand pretending I like her. Being within 10 feet of that woman makes me very uncomfortable. You know me .. I LOVE everyone.. but that woman just drives me nuts!!
Again.. enjoy your NEW husband!! LOL.. He sounds like he's really trying and that's just AWESOME!!!
Hugs for now..
