Many people get upset when they hear well spouses complaining of the little inconveniences they go through. They don’t understand why they make such a big deal out of what, to them, is nothing. But for a well spouse, the little thing is a symbol of the massive loss, the universal change in their life that has affected every aspect of their marriage and their very existence. It represents every dismal change they have had to endure in order to make their spouses life easier. It reflects the feeling that, once the illness began, their very existence started to disappear. And seeing it that way makes it not so small after all.
