Sharing An Illness
--by wotserface, posted Apr 5, 2008
How I cope with "our" illness,
I really just can't say.
Don't make too many plans,
Try and live just day by day.
Some days there'll be ups,
And some days there'll be downs.
Some days there'll be hospitals,
Drips,tubes and gowns.
I've always been quite mellow,
A chilled out kind of guy.
But it broke my heart in two,
When I thought that she might die.
There's one thing I am sure of,
It's "our" illness not our life.
The other thing I am sure of,
Is Heidi, my friend,my lover,my wife.
It's not like we've got cancer,
And pretty soon we'll die.
Just keep getting up each morning,
Never give up and always try.
I hope there are lots more up times.
In love & best health wishes-
And educational... I admit this made me do some searching about IIH.
Thank your husband for his reminder that we're not alone in our illnesses.
God bless you.
