The Very Patient Husband

Audio version

Dear Diary

I am incredibly lucky to have an amazing husband. I just wanted to get that out there at the very start. He is amazing.

Of course he has some quirks- who doesn’t?- but his steadfast love and support have kept me sane.

Are there times I feel like strangling him? Absolutely!!! More than I would like to publicly declare!

But none of us are perfect. We all have our issues and I’m grateful we make a good team: he is strong where I’m not and I’m strong where he isn’t. What more could we ask for?

But he is also INCREDIBLY STUBBORN. Yes, definitely deserving of all caps.

He almost died in January. Major heart attack compounded by a 3 hour wait for an ambulance.

That’s not his fault you say. No, it isn’t- except for the entire preceding month when he wasn’t feeling well and I kept asking him to go to the GP. The entire month.

Why are men so reluctant to seek help?

He had a very rough 3 weeks in hospital and his heart stopped during one of the procedures. Thank goodness they got his heart going again!

The recovery has been very slow but at least we have a recovery!!

Always count the blessings.

Lots of love from Me xxx

  1. So glad to hear your husband is on the way to recovery. That must have been very scary moment for both of you! I can’t imagine what that would have been like. I also love how real you are about your union- I am very careful about how I portray my marriage- I never want someone to look in from the outside and think “wow, what a perfect marriage” or “holy shit, that’s a terrible marriage.” All marriages have ups and downs, I just want to be realistic about marriage, that’s all! Thanks for sharing a bit of your marriage journey!

    1. I think you’re completely right- there are ups and downs. The lasting is dependent on being patient and kind to each other through it all.

      We have been married for 15 years now but it feels like no time at all.

      I still want to strangle him a few times a week but the feeling eventually passes. 😉
