Hi there and welcome to my blog. I am a married 60 year old woman who still has the mind of a twenty year old. I have three children and two grandsons. I've been to hell and back each time stronger than the time before. If I can help you then it was all worth it.

For Better Or Worse #ChronicIllness#Sickhusband#Dontgiveup

 Isn't that pretty? I love messing with this stuff. I will give you the link. It's through Facebook. Frames for your photos. Anyways this post isn't about this picture. It'sore about the "better or worse" part of marriage.

From the day I met my husband, Chuck, he was very truthful about one of his conditions. It's called Hidradenitis. To find out more here's another link Hidradenitis. He began to notice boils coming out of his areas that were hairy in his twenties. Even the doctors he went to wasn't well-read in this disease so the boils began to grow under both his armpits. He finally decided to get the surgery which both his armpit glands were removed causing holes that were deep enough to put a fist in. 

I wasn't in the picture yet just hearing the stories. The end result was he can't spend a lot of time in the sun for he could become overheated causing him to faint. Which he has fainted a couple of times. But that's not all.

The list of what I call ailments is pretty long. Here I will list them:

  • Sterile
  • Depression
  • Anxiety  
  • Hidradenitis
  • Numerous Surgeries For  Hidradenitis
  • Cellulitis
  • Diabetes
  • Chronic Headaches
  • Gout 
  • Nerve pain in hips
  • Bad ankles 
It got so bad at one point he tried to swallow a bunch of pills ending up in the hospital, again. But, the man has never taken it out on me. He gained a bunch of weight, almost 300lbs. Now I worry about his heart. We have been together and married for 14 years. I have no idea where the time has gone like with all things. 

I've thought of running for the hills but with the tragic deaths of his sister, father, and mother I don't feel I could hurt him like that. My suggestion if you have a husband or wife who is in poor health get counseling in your area. Also, #ChronicillyIllSpouse is a good way to know your not all alone. The link is here.

I'm five years older than him having my own health problems. I get deeply depressed sometimes and I do something about it. When "For Better Or Worse" rears it's the ugly head as my son said, hang in there people. Think back to why you got married or even got together in the first place. And best of luck!
