It appears that the old saying is true...dark clouds do indeed have silver linings. I can't say that it's always true, but it seems to be in this case.
Well here's the wonderful thing.... As I have been on this road to recovery, the hubby has jumped into action to take care of me, support me, encourage me, calm me and generally let me know how much he loves me, how much I mean to him and how much he wants me in his life. I, in turn, am trying to do the same for him. In my current state it isn't always easy... I always feel it, but it can be hard to show someone just how happy they make you when you're crying all the time. The words combined with the behaviour just aren't convincing. But, as a whole, big changes are happening. We're having date days and date nights. We're being far more affectionate. We're openly discussing our needs and our wants and we're finding compromises when those desires are sometimes polar opposites. We're finding things to do together, things that we can share and talk about.
