Howdy fellow Spineys!!!
My hubby and I were in the pool tonight - I love this part by the way with him - NO TV, Cell phone, computers --> Just me and the hubby!!! Okay, with that, we get into all manner of conversations. Tonight I brought up jlrfrye's post of "lying about our conditions" and do I do that - with him?
He told me that I don't lie about my condition, but I do either 'hide' my true pain that day, or ignore my pain and push into things that hurt me later! So hence my question, do you with your loved ones do this? I didn't think I did, but he brought up various things I do or don't do that shows when I am hiding my pain and pushing through. Neither he nor I are "the man" of the house if you will, we are partners, but he has on occasion, asked me to "go lay down" or take my breakthrough meds, as he apparently sees in my body language and mood when I do this. He is my "Best friend, lover and confidant", and I wouldn't give him up for the world! March was the 20 year mark for us, the last 8 of which his dealing with my dang spine issues!
Anyone, or am I just odd? No, not trying to 'man up' as a woman, I just like many don't feel like constantly saying this or that hurts, I just go along - and apparently I am NOT fooling my hubby! Love him!!!
