Living with chronic illness, I feel closer to my family and friends. My view of the
world has changed. Things that I thought were important aren't as valuable to me,
My relationship has somewhat changed with my husband. He is very healthy and
athletic and I can no longer keep up with him. I encourage him to play tennis and golf
and he does play in leagues. He is very attentive to me and we still find time to have
fun together. He is very helpful around the house and never complains. He has
proven his vows...in sickness and in health over and over. I love him for it!
My grown daughter acts like the over protective mother with me. She is always telling
me to be careful and to sit and rest. She lives out of state with her family and calls
me daily. When we visit, she waits on me like royality. I can spend my time playing
with my grandaughter and that is fine with me! I love my daughter and her family.
My Mom and siblings also live far away, but we are extremely close. My Dad's recent
death reminds me often to tell the people I love how much I love them.
My friends are always supportive and will go out of the way to help when needed.
They are always asking what they can do to help.
I feel closer to people than I ever have and value each of my relationships more
than I ever have. I also treasure my fibro family and love you all for all the support,
and compassion you have shown me in the last year. Thank You!
