I never thought that having a bad pain day could be such a good day. My fiance got everyone ready for school, walked the dogs, fed all our pets and cleaned up. Then crawled back into bed with me and we began our day at my pace. Since I have been stuck reclining or lying down all day, he spent time with me watching Whose Line is it Anyway on the internet! I haven't laughed that way in ages and can't remember the last time I laughed that hard. It hurt to laugh that way, but those moments of giggles and closeness will live in my memory for life. The pain can be put aside when spent with the right person and simply being loved.
SO a great big thank you to all the men out there who help their wives and daughters even through their chronic pain or daily life stress. Without men like you, this world would be a sad and lonely place.
Hugs to all and I hope your days are blessed

I'm so happy you had a good day. It was needed and I'm sure your relationship will be improved for quite some time from just the personal interaction of this morning.

I hope tomorrow goes as well as today!

Dear Mindy,
I am so blessed for you that you had one of those awesome, deep, belly laughs with the man who loves you no matter what. You deserve that over and over again! I know how hectic life can be with kids and all that goes with chronic illness and that you got to share some laughter and love with this man who obviously "gets" you as well as anyone can get a chronically ill person, well that was icing on the cake! I'm so happy for you that you had these wonderful moments! I hope you have many more!

My wife tries very hard but we cannot connect in this area.
My mother, a very independent woman died of a neurological disease, and it appears to be a bit like I have.
My wife`s mother died a pathetic death from Parkinsons...she did little to help herself and just ran my wife ragged. Her father has been very sick for years and is also a bit helpless, who too runs my wife ragged. So, when I got crook there is very little patience left.
When we go out, I often cannot walk as fast as my wife but she cannot walk as slow as me.
My wife loves travel but I am unable, or I can but it is really painful so there is no pleasure in it.
An alternative is to take local holidays which we both enjoy but if we are gone for more than a couple of days there is trouble from father - in -law...he lives in another state and he dictates that my wife should be visiting him on the basis that my wife...we will call her Mary has been overseas twice in recent times and she should be spending time now with her father.
So that is my story...I do not know who to turn to for support.
