With this flare I have been much more vocal about
what's going on. I had a tendency not to discuss it and to "suffer in silence". I found out this wasn't doing any one good. Last night I tried to put myself in hubby's shoes... I'd want to know how miserable he was, but I also know that there's not much the spouse can do. I know he would take away the pain, etc if he could. Thankfully he is free with the hugs and that is a comfort. He does ask how I'm feeling - especially when the pain is written on my face.
I also know that some people are just not as caring and empathetic. Maybe they can research and find that gene??? However, there are times when I wish I was less so as it creates more anxiety than I need.
I'm sorry you're feeling sick! Vent away - we completely understand :) Plus - it gets some of that emotion out!
