Dealing with a crohnic illness can bring anger out of the blue and I sure wish that I could just snap out of it. While it is true that we can help ourselves to some dgree, we can not just snapout of it or control our feelings. Believe me, I tried this for 40 years and got no where with it. In fact it just made things more difficult in the long run. Stuffing my feelings only made the burdens heavier because I had no place safe to leave them. Talk to your husband about
how he can help you cope with this illness rather than how it affects him. Also give him a break too. Everyone has bad days and maybe he was having one too. Good luck and hang in there.
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.
