love-1716825_1920Living with someone who has a chronic illness can’t be easy. I sometimes fall apart as soon as I get home from work, after keeping the facade for the entire work day.

As my spouse you see the real me, you get the see the pain, the exhaustion, the emotional torment. Unfortunately, my energy is often spent on work hours and you don’t get to see the mask I put on with others. You would see through the mask anyway.

Your reaction has been nothing but compassion, selflessness and sacrifice to make sure that my days are lived, loved and meaningful.

You are appreciated. I love you with everything that I have. I don’t tell you thank you enough. To the moon and back, to the ends of the earth. I love you.
