I have observed myself lately and the way I have acted at home. I have a bad habit of getting snippy when I am not feeling well and thus has been the case as of late. With my MS symptoms escalating I have to be overly cautious with the way I respond to Evelina. She has mentioned it a few times to me and now I am trying to be aware enough to pause before I speak to her.
It isn’t easy. But living with MS does not give me carte blanche nor does it preclude me from the responsibility of treating my wife with love and respect. It’s not always easy to observe oneself, but it is definitely revealing.
Do you take responsibility for the way you treat others when you aren’t feeling well? Or do you expect them to understand and accept your treatment?
