mary colleen Posted November 1, 2007 Share Posted November 1, 2007 Not sure why, and not even sure why I'm writing this down, but I have had the most creeping sense of trepidation lately about my husband's condition. It feels as if there are subtle changes in his overall well-being, but none of them are obvious red flags. I wonder if it's just because I am deeply involved this week in switching him over to long term disablity (from short term in his private policy), as well as working on his application for SSDI, and doing all of the other business things I need to do to severe his financial ties with his employer....rolling the 401-K, finding a new health insurer, etc. All of the sudden, it feels as if we are not in some temporary bump in the road, but are actually approaching the end of a road. He SEEMS relatively well, considering. However, every little thing (his back aching, a little extra fatigue, etc.) seems to be scary to me now. We have scans coming up in a couple of weeks, so maybe this is the dreaded "scanxiety"?? I think I've just spooked myself. I have to be very careful not to pass that onto him through my over-anxious reactions to things and excessive probing. Well, I feel better having written it out. This too, shall pass, I guess. Thanks all. MC Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
