A very interesting thing happened last weekend that got me thinking about all of our support peeps.
Last weekend I said to my husband "I think I've got a little arthritis in my thumb" because it was hurting a bit. I really thought this was just a little passing comment. Then he said to me, "You can't hurt anymore. It's my turn to hurt." I was just shocked and speechless. What a pitiful thing to say and I can't even put into words how that made me feel. Since last April he has listened every time I've complained of pain, discomfort, expressed fear about surgery, etc. and I can probably say it was a daily occurance. And he was there, every day.
After he said that, I decided I needed to put away my pain for a day or two (or at least don't talk about it) and do nothing but listen to him and make of him, be my old self. I did that and on the second day he started talking about my neck and asking how my pain was that day. I answered him, but didn't linger on the subject.
How interesting. Just hearing those words again in my head breaks my heart and makes me want to hold him. :X
Anybody experience something like this?
