Hi All, :H

I am wondering if anyone could offer some insight about how your spouse, or "life partner", or "soul mate" deals with your chronic pain and all of the dr trips and meds, etc.? I did do a search on the SH site, but didn't find too many what I would consider helpful responses. Those that were out there were quite old. Hubby and I have been married about 10 years and since my "adventure" began in 2006 things have been very solid. Known each other since Kindergarten :X. Graduated HS in 1966. Reconnected in 2002. Married 2003. Sometimes, though, I feel like he would like to distance himself me from my whole situation. Is this just my guilt coming through or what? Appreciate the feedback all.
