something I've always done for my hubby, and also for myself, to get us through the attacks.
You probably know, on average, how long his attacks last. Watch the clock. Tell him, as the attack progresses, how long it's been. Or, if he wants to be alone, just watch the clock yourself. Tell yourself, it's only 20 more minutes....it's only 10 more minutes. Sometimes it helps to keep a focus on the horizon instead of the road, ya know?
And, stay tuned here - we're setting up a new section called the Family Services Team, a place where other supporters can talk to each other and share war stories. Feel free to join in any time and if you want, email me directly if you just need to vent.
