My Husband’s Long Journey With My Chronic Illness

How my husband deals with my Relapsing Polychondritis

My husband’s long journey with my chronic illness feels never ending to me.

So, I can’t even imagine how my husband feels.

This is the marriage neither one of us thought would be our world but it is.

I know my husband worries about me 24/7.

Sometimes at night I catch him putting his finger under me nose to see if I am breathing or he shakes me if I am gasping for air.

On these nights my husband reminds me of a mother constantly checking to make sure their new born is alright.

I have no doubt my chronic life threatening medical conditions have taken a toll on him.

I feel terrible for the stress, my lack of function and the medical bills I have brought into our family.

I realize it is not my fault and it is what is.

But, still I have a hole in my heart for the marriage that never was, what I might have been and what we would have been together.
