    My husband of 26 years could not adapt to my illness. Somehow I was able to shop and get dinners on the table even when I was in sick but he couldn't handle it when I couldn't. I never knew whether or not there would be something for me to eat if I was having a bad day. Since I'm divorcing him I'm hoping that meeting someone who can accept me where I am is going to work better than what I'm going through now.

    Being that it is almost February has only a coincidental bearing on my question. I want to talk about relationships and how our illnesses have affected them. Mine is in the midst of falling to peaces, and I wondered how many of you have or are going through the same thing.
    Do you think it is better to meet someone and start a relationship after your illness has progressed to its worst, or do you think it is better to be with someone who was with you before the illness got to it's worst? I'm beginning to feel as if I am doomed.

    I need help finding a pillow I can sleep on. Ive been using a "Goldilocks" system for the last ten years, rotating three or more different types, sizes, etc of cervical pillows depending on my particular pain level on said night. Lately, the pain is worsening to a place of even more misery than I thought possibly. The back of my head and my entire neck ( along spine and joints on the sides of my neck) are so sore to the touch the slightest pressure brings tears to my eyes. I cannot find a soft enough pillow. Lying on my sides does not help either. Please help me someone!!!! I'm sore like this all over my body in different spots but it has never prevented me from sleeping. Just for back info...I have Fibro, Myofascial pain syndrome, TMJ, Migraines(possibly from Occipital Neuralgia).....and so on:(

      It seems the softer the better, however I know with the loss of natural curve in my neck I should be using a proper cervical pillow. Unfortunately (firmness) is adding to the discomfort. No matter how soft or what kind if it has just a smidge too much density I feel the pain. Heck I feel it when I just lie down on my bed without a pillow:) Guess this is livin.
