Marriage with Chronic Illness: An Interview with My Husband

    Wishing you and yours a wonderful, safe, happy, and healthy holiday season. May 2018 be good to us all. And may we be blessed with good friends like each other for many years to come. Hugs.


  2. I so enjoyed your wonderful post. I recall when Sheryl and I heard we would be facing RA. We went to the car, had a good cry and went one. What else could we do really? Not much really.

    We cried, and moved on to find a new place. Wile the tears sometimes continue, we found like you, that life does go on.
