Sometimes it’s hard to know what your partner is thinking going through this journey. I am not sure how I would be if the boot was on the other foot and I can’t even bear to think about that.
We are all different in terms of how we deal with this situation. I recently read a breast cancer awareness article and it explained things really well. Some people want to talk. Some people don’t….
I am a talker, naturally an extrovert, I get my energy from people. Hubby is the opposite, he seeks within, naturally an introvert. He needs time to himself, a reflector. One isn’t better than the other, they both make great wives, husbands, parents, leaders but sometimes it’s hard.
A day like today.
We’ve been to the hospital as I had physio and we’ve barely said a word. There was no blazing row, some days I know he just needs space and time.
We will be ok soon, it’s just the reflection time. I know he is probably worried about returning to work tomorrow and leaving me at home, alone.
His job is demanding, very demanding at times. But all through this he had been my “rock”
There every step of the way, not once had he complained, he probably should have!
I wouldn’t change a thing about him.
