Hey Mesh, I am one of the stuff everything away and not talk about
it. I has taken alot out of me and probably destroyed my marriage. The disease didn't, but my inability to live with it in an healthy way. I do take an anit-depressant, something that took a lot of self reflection to come to terms with. Don't spend time worrying about
convincing his family what life is like with Crohn's, they will never get it. The best thing I cna think of is focusing on you, getting better, and how you and your partner can learn to develop a true partnership in living life together.
We can respond to irritation with a smile instead of scowl, or by giving warm praise instead of icy indifference. By our being understanding instead of abrupt, others, in turn, may decide to hold on a little longer rather than to give way. Love, patience, and meekness can be just as contagious as rudeness and crudeness.
