Full of Love, But Lacking Emotional Support

 When you're both facing out in the world with love, but the world isn't facing back to support you.

When you're both facing out in the world with love, but the world isn't facing back to support you.

πŸ’Œ Dear Ruksi πŸ’Œ
Three years ago, the love of my life, my husband started to suffer from a rare chronic illness. My broken heart is finally starting to mend after working through my fear for him and my sadness over the things we will never get to do together. But I am still struggling with how alone it feels to go through this with him while many of our friends and our family do not understand because he *looks* healthy. I even had to end my relationship with a long-time friend because she believes unhelpful things about modern medicine and chronic illness. It has made me realize how fiercely strong my love is for my husband, but that some of my friends and family are a weak emotional support system.

Sincerely,
Full of Love, But Lacking Emotional Support
