I am finding it hard to get my husband to understand what is wrong with me and it's making me feel miserable. I went alone for my first visit to see the Rheumatologist whilst my husband was helping some old people by driving a mini bus. Whilst at the hospital I was asked if I would participate in a trial looking at compliance in taking Methotrexate, and I agreed.
I was shell-shocked by the diagnosis, and when my husband came to collect me from the hospital I didn't say much about the Consultation, but I did mention being part of some research.
He made a comment some time later which showed that he thought I was just participating in some research. We chatted about the research, but I told him that it was not just for research that I was attending the Rheum Dept. I thought he understood, only to be asked yesterday when the Trial finished and when I would stop taking the medicine and having these inconvenient blood tests.
He is such a kind and loving man and will take me anywhere and do anything for me. How can I make things any clearer to him, I don't want to go on and on about it?
