Awww, I just hate to hear when soembody's really hurtin Ray. I just popped on the board for a moment and thought I 'd try and give it a go.
As many have said in this board in response to inquiries such as yours, perhaps one of the best things you can do int future is, when she ain't hurting so bad, ask her what helps her when she is having an attack. It is best to discuss this when she is not in bad pain though.
Jyust be there for her man. She may want to be alone during the attack and she may not. Just ask. Ask her every once in awhile if she needs something, like a drink or meds or whatever. Simply being there for her is just unbelievably helpful. That's probably the best thing I can say. I wish that I could tell you, hey do this and the pain will be gone bud. Sadly, I cannot though.
I think that is a good suggestion for starters, trying to give her a break from the kids and other household things. I think it's great that you are on this board asking how to help.
Forgive me if my words are a bit muddled. Now that i have started this post I seem to be losing the thresd of it. It's pissing me off a bit.
So, hopefully someone else will come along with a good suggestion or two.
I, for one will, right this moment, go and make a prayer for you and Gizi and your family. I will be praying for health and help for you all.
You guys hang in there Bro. My hat's off to ya for being brave enough to ask for some help. Your doing good bro.
Wishing that Gizi will be pain free soonest!
Got to go,
Love, Michgael B
