I am happy to hear about your photography business! I have a couple of friends with their own photography business and both are doing quite well. I wish you the best of luck.
I couldn't do much with my children. When they were very young, I was suffering with Crohn's disease badly and couldn't be away from the bathroom for any length of time. It was horrible so trips to the park, picnics, were non-existant in my children's lives. By the time they were in their preteen years, I came down with fibro. I felt very guilty for many years but my now adult children have since told me that I was the best Mom of any of their friends. I was always home for them, I had wonderful dinners on the table at night. So, there are some benefits to this illness. You are more likely to be home for your children when they really need you and need some help or advice.
I'm sorry your husband won't even try to understand. It's times like these that I wish these types of people would be hit with fibro for just one weekend. That would surely knock some sense into them!
