It's going on five years now, and for the past four I have been unable to work because of chronic pain and not being able to find a job that I can do with limitations. :<
About 6 months ago I started working for my local paper as a reporter, something I've wanted to do all my life. I was never formally trained, but have been writing all my life. It's the perfect job. I don't have to punch a clock. I'm allowed to write at home and the interviews and meetings are only an hour or so.
Right after my surgery my husband was afraid I would break if I did anything. He took care of everything, the house, the kids, the bills, the animals, everything but dinner. (Food runs from him unless he's eating it. It's afraid it will be mangled, burned or butchered, if you know what I mean)
Since I've been working he's gone from "You're doing too much, to did you do laundry today? I thought you were going to go to the store, are you going to watch this with me?
I'm not really sure what to think :? He doesn't sound like he's worried, like he did before. He sounds angry with me.
I'm still limited and between taking care of myself (managing pain is a full time job in itself) and working, I know the time I have is kind of limited, but what's new?
Anybody else have anything like this going on in their life? I've tried talking to him and he assures me everythig is fine. If it is, it sure doesn't feel like it.
