Trigger Warning: The Husband Speaks

We (the hubby and I) begin simply enough in the bedroom... on weekends we watch movies in bed. Popcorn, puffy pillows and two massive smelly dogs happily snoring at our feet. I was telling him I wanted to interview him for a post about the healthy 'partner' living with a chronically ill loved one. I... Continue Reading →

Hello Chronic Illness Vampire!
