The blind leading the blind.

Mike is now mostly vertical. The bug has left him with the residual tiredness typical of viruses. It also seems to have left him with depression. He is refusing to eat or drink properly for fear they will try and take off the weight in water. He is simply sitting in the chair and dozing. Everything I say is turned into a negative and the whole world is against him. 

I am definitely not able to help him, I am stuck with my own fears and anxiety, I don't know what we are going to do now.


  1. Ah Lorna my friend, I wish there was something I could do to help. I know it's easier said than done but hang in there girl. It will get better. Sending lots of positive thoughts your way.

  2. Oh, Lorna. One of the worst things is being at odds with your own spouse. It is easy for me to say but remember that all marriages have these times when you feel like you are past having enough.
    I hope the tides turn for both of you soon and this time brings you closer together. Real life is not a Nicolas Sparks book where disease beings you closer together. It is hard. So very hard.

  3. Ugh. I've got a patient like this at home too. And here I am in the workplace, trying not to worry about him, reading this and thinking I ought to be watching over him instead of sitting at my desk. Hugs to both of you.
