When you begin a long-term relationship or a marriage, there is this saying that it’s all “for better or worse” but rarely do couples really know what that entails. Many of us think it’s just sticking through the everyday mundane, but when your partner gets sick, that’s when this phrase really kicks in.
Having to make sure you’re able to support your partner, in whatever health struggle they’re going through, takes a lot of commitment and it’s always easy. You have to find a way to pick up their end of the workload, make sure they don’t feel like they’re burdening you, try to fit in your own self-care, all while worried about your loved one—and often your children, too.
For many it’s easier said than done.
But there are some partners who know that having the support of a loved one can make all the difference in the world when it comes to healing and striving for better. Whether that be an issue with finances, work, physical sickness, or a mental health crisis, that support and comfort can really be a driving factor in making sure your partner is getting the best care they can.
