I don't want to draw attention to myself. I wasn't the one in pain. Shae needed all the attention. It was about him. I don't need pity or want to seem selfish, yet I must bring up that the caretaker of an ill or elderly person has many needs.
It is hard to see a loved one in so much pain. I watched him struggle day after day. I remembered the hope I had for our life. I had hope of happiness and good times; a young couple ready to take on all life brought to us. Yet, the last thing we expected was Trigeminal Neuralgia.
In sickness and in health.

Can you believe that my love for my hurting spouse actually grew ever day? It did. And, I hope to share with you, over the next months, exactly how we both over came the horrendous disorder.
I learned to find little things in every day to be thankful for. There was much to feel sad or let down about and those feelings are valid. It is a matter of not focusing on those feelings for too long and instead remember the small blessings in every day.
