I've been in your spot. My man has been with me for 15 years and has been with me through countless
surgeries (heart cath, female fixes, tumor removal, knee surgery, etc). I know it's been hard on him seeing
me sliced and diced so many times. Put this on top of the arthritis and fibro. I went into the hospital for
a routine procedure and ended up in ICU with my blood pressure so low I couldn't have anything for the
pain. A storm front was moving in and it was one of my roughest times yet. He's been there through me
writhing and moaning on the couch in agony...taking so many painkillers that I went to work spaced out
from lack of sleep and fighting off the aftereffects of the drugs.
Humor definately helps. He found he had to slow way down for me to keep up. Now I've been doing
a new herbal regeime and he no longer has to listen to me up all night or to wait for me to catch up
with him when he is walking. I hope you find what works for you, sometimes it seems to take forever;
but it's out there...just waiting for you to find it.
