Business has picked up

Well, at work I finally have more patients.

4 to be exact.

My caseload is still a little low but who can complain.
2 of my patients are husband and wife so they are in the same household.

Angel has come to his senses too.
He is really being nice to me and trying to make me comfortable.
I do believe it's GUILT playing this part because I know he doesn't do this to get what he wants.

He doesn't want to go back to El Paso. I have many reasons to believe that his working away from home is taking it's toll on him and he is not much of a communicator.
He doesn't know how to say what the things are that are bothering him.

He wants to work closer to home.
He is trying to continue to work everyday even though he suffers from a crippling disease (rheumatoid arthritis)
This disease often leads to depression because at his age 31 it shouldn't be this bad (it's advanced)
He was once hospitalized because the inflammation had spread to his lungs resulting in rheumatic lung disease.
His doctors are creating a case study because he is so young to have a disease that often affects elderly people close to their 80s.
He was also hospitalized because he got a blood clot in his left calf and was placed on blood thinners for the rest of his life.
We moved away from his favorite place (the beach) and the kids tell him often how much they miss it.


I know it sounds like I am making excuses for him, and maybe I am, but he isn't usually that shitty. He's the most laid back father I know.
He was obviously holding something in and I happen to have found the trigger.

I love my husband.


He won't be throwing a fit like that again!

I watched my grandmother suffer from RA for so many years- IT was terrible- and I often think my mother is going to develop it because she has such bad hands and knees-
I sold a drug for RA for many years til they pulled it from the market- I'm tellin ya those people are in some kinda pain- but you already know that- I will be thinkin about you!

I travel a lot and it just kills me. I want to be with my family 7 days a week.

mom taxi julie:
I totally wish he didn't have to go through all of this. He gets it from him mom.

drama mama:
I know he is in a lot of pain. I see it everytime he wakes in the morning or when he tries to move. He was taking Remicade infusions but we think that is what led to the rheumatic lung disease.

moe wanchuk:
Ha Ha
I wish he was here too. He mentioned something about his company bidding on a job closer to home so we hope they get it.

Y'all will get through it..sometimes we have to make excuses for each other..we have to figure out the reason at least, to understand and plow through.
