Any pain, any person, any way

Best person is my wife. She does massages and hot towels when she sees me been bedridden. Also for now, she’s bringing the bread home. Really appreciate her a lot.

My rheumatologist educated my hubby in depth about all my issues being "lifetime" chronic issues. He's my best advocate now to help others (family & friends) understand and support me. He does all the cooking, cleaning, yardwork and works. He even does 98% of the shopping, without complaining. And today he said "Not being able to control my urine leakage helps me understand what you've been going through for years." Awww...

He is recovering from prostate cancer and needs to regain muscle control, a possibility for him. My OAB & urine leakage & urine retention is from a mass that was removed in 2010, and symptoms will only worsen. It could always be worse. πŸ™‚β€πŸ™πŸŒΌ
