Thanks for your reply and well done for having such a positive attitude.
I appreciate we are all different and obviously deal with things in our own way. I would like to think I could take your positive approach, but (thankfully) I have never been in your position.
We are no stranger to illness in our household, sadly my daughter ( now a mother) suffers from uc and was home tutored from 13 years. The subject was very much taboo with her, hospital admissions meant lots of dissapointment and unreliability and her keeping this a secret meant over the years she lost friends due her unpredictability and unexplained mood swings. I became mum, best friend Nurse and punchball for over 7 years, until she accepted the condition. Thankfully fast forward 7 years, a level headed business woman , who talks openly about her condition, even going to hospital to talk to teenagers about growing up with the condition. I now my hubby will eventually ‘GET’ there, it is just so sad to see him suffering the way he is, with help so close.
When our daughter was poorly , he wouldn’t wait for a diagnosis and took her half way around the country within 72 hours of her falling ill to start treatment. That is one of the things we find so frustrating.
I think one of the hardest things with my hubby is going to be keeping his mood positive, as sadly he can slip easily into a deep dark pit. He has had health problems in the past, and we really had a hard swim against the current to get back to shore. Best dig out the dingy and put on the swimsuit … we will get there.
Thankyou so much for being here.
