A day without rain

It was lovely today – cool, but the clouds were spotted by sunlight and it wasn’t raining. I think that’s the first non-raining day in two weeks. In the afternoon I dragged Adam out of the house and we headed to a couple of stores and had a cheap sushi lunch. Unfortunately, by the time we were on our way to the grocery store to pick up dinner for tonight, he was feeling the pain pretty badly again. Instead of stopping at the Future Shop so I could spend my gift card I won for the hideous mask, we just came straight home.

It can be so frustrating that he can’t walk for more than five minutes without being in too much pain, and he can’t sit for more than ten minutes without it causing him pain. Basically all he can do is lie around – it’s the only way to not be in pain.

We moved to Vancouver so we could get more involved in the outdoors – hiking, biking, skiing, snowboarding, camping, all that sort of stuff. Now he can’t leave the house, practically. I think this whole situation might be driving him crazy, and it’s obviously nothing I can fix.

I don’t mean to complain. I just haven’t really got anywhere to vent these things but here.

I think I’ll write some more.

    pssst, part of the reason we read is to hear your complaints, they’re just as much about your life as the joys…

      I agree.
      Rant away.
      You never know when someone will have ideas or say something to make you feel better.
      We’re all here for you, to listen to, even if we may not have any useful ideas. :/

    I can truly relate to how difficult it is to watch your husband suffering in pain and know you can’t do anything but watch. In my case is really started to affect not only him but me after about a year. With no cure in sight for him it was terribly frustrating to see us in a situation where neither of us could do things together anymore because of his illness. In some ways that is still the case, but fortunately he is feeling much better. For both of your sakes I hope Adam can get his medical situation sorted out quickly. Being in pain is miserable as is watching someone you love suffer through it.
