He is in a Nursing Home now, I’m crying
Crying because he got sick pneumonia
Crying because he got well
Crying because I love him so much and someone else is taking care of him
Crying because I am so tired.
I will cry if he dies, and I am crying because he didn’t;
I am crying because he has a very poor quality of life; but do we need more in life than to be loved by our spouse and by our G-d?
Crying because it’s been so long, and love has not been enough to make him well.
Crying because I can’t let him have pneumonia without being treated, but feeling social pressure not to treat it.
Crying because getting well from pneumonia means he will live longer so his MS can get even worse.
Crying because he is in the nursing home and crying because he will come home.
Crying because my identity is so caught up in his, in being a caregiver and his wife. How will I know who I am when I cannot care for him any more?
