I keep thinking about how hard it is to be married to a man who doesn't know back pain and sciatic nerve pinch and a drop foot. We were returning my rental home mobility aides and he was looking at and bought a wrist splint. Is this what we are now? I also fantasise I meet someone online here and because we share the same affliction we can share our surgery stories. Maybe you have a fusion. Maybe you reherniated. I feel your pain. You cry in happiness with me when I can move my toe for the first time in 6 weeks. You provide the right kind of hug. The one at the right time and there's nothing else implied. I want this quality in a person I'm living with right now. I'll take my handsome bad boy later when I can use my spine again? Which is when exactly?
