Valentine Tales (Health and Relationship Stages?)
Yesterday was Valentine’s Day and I spent most of it with my daughters and husband.
I met my husband when my health was first starting to really decline, but I didn’t have a grip yet on what was going (I was a late diagnosis!) My diagnosis went through many wrong iterations until we finally figured out what was up, but even then, the most psychologically relieving thing for myself at the time was establishing a good routine. As soon as I knew “what to do” (lung clearance, inhaled antibiotics, enzymes and onward), I improved, even though the damage to organs at not knowing for so many years was significant.
I think my partner knew “what he was getting into” when we first met, in the sense that he knew I had major breathing problems (my fingers would periodically go blue) and was soon to get a G tube placed, but he didn’t really KNOW. You know? Who could? I know I didn’t!
So here’s my question for you: What stage of health were you in when you met your now person, whomever that is?
Or, if you don’t currently have a Valentine (more power to ya): Has health ever impacted a former flame significantly? In good or bad ways?
