Spouse's reaction?

How did your spouse react when the diagnosis was ""made official? Spouses are supposed to be supportive, right? Listen to you? I don’t know if he Is just not accepting it, ignoring me or it just freaks him out. Whenever I try to talk to him, he changers the subject. He Just doesn’t want to talk at all.

HI lilybit, everyone reacts differently to things. I invite you to join our new group (under the groups tab) "Communicating with Friends and Family Positively." I have re-posted several valuable articles there that do a great job explaining to others what life with chronic pain is like. I hope you take a look, I have found them very useful personally. Hugs.
