As my day progressed my pain lessened. Took all my meds as well as my cbd oil etc. So the hubby and I chill on the couch. Snuggled up like bugs in a rug. We’re going to watch Netflix and chill. Young people use this term as a slang term for sex. Lance and I literally watch Netflix and chill out.
We decide on a movie. The name of the movie we pick is Lovers with Debra Winger and some guy I don’t recognize. It’s a cautionary tale of two older people that are stepping out on their spouse (hence the title Lovers).
This brings me to a question. Should us MSers expect this kind of thing? I mean it is hard having a spouse with limitations, but marriage should be until death do you part. Not well my partner is sick so I’m going to find someone else. I see it all the time in the groups I’m in. It breaks my heart every time.
I can understand people growing apart, but just totally giving up on your spouse because they’re sick? In my opinion thats unacceptable. I truly don’t know how someone can deal with that without becoming violent. I promise there would be an ass kickin’ a coming (said in my best Southern accent). I may be a Northerner but I can do a hell of a good Southern accent, as well as whip an ass like there’s no tomorrow.
I think about my own circumstances. No Lance didn’t sign up for this, but I’m all about full disclosure and I made him very aware of how things can go. The only thing I do know is this is a scary topic for people with a chronic illness. But it does happen A LOT.
Us MSers have a lot to think about. Our failing health as well as being a burden on our loved ones and them becoming disinterested. I hope my hubby never feels the need to, but if he ever does it would be his loss. I may be sick but I’m still quite a catch and do bring a lot to the table.
To my friends that follow this no, I don’t think Lance is stepping out. This is just a trend I see on the MS groups I follow. So let all of us follow the thinking that our worth isn’t effected due to our illness. We’re strong mentally if not physically and we DO bring something to the table besides illness.
I finish this blog post with saying whatever we do let’s not let our illness over shadow our self worth
