Hello community, I have a random question, and I kind of need to vent, (I hope that's OK).
My partner told me he's sick of hearing about my pain and my whinging.
Well, I thought I was doing a pretty good job at not voicing my pain much at all. Only when I do something that hurts really bad I will say ouch, but only when it catches me off guard -you know, like when I banged my broken arm on the door or something.
I'm doing my best to keep upbeat and appreciate what I do have.
I haven't shown any signs of depression to him at all.
So my question is, what can I do better?
I thank him every day for working hard, I do everything around the house despite my pain (fibromyalgia and currently a broken arm).
Please don't simply suggest I leave him!
I'm after some serious advice. I'm certain other people on this forum have dealt with the same issues. It's a hard time for everyone, suffering from any chronic illness.
I thank you in advance for having a read and for any possible advice.
