unwell

Last night I found myself dehydrated.

I’ve never been the one who needed to be taken care of. Correction, I did need it, but it was a need unmet. Having no one I felt would take care of me wore on me. It was a major contributing factor to the end of my marriage.

And yet, last night, I found myself ill equipped to be in the opposite position. I found myself feeling uneasy.

I feel like I was probably ungrateful, it was more embarrassment that I felt so poorly, that I needed help.

One thought on “unwell

  1. It is hard for strong women to rely on people. Especially when you have suppressed that side of yourself for so long.

    Give yourself time to adjust. I am sure if you explain it to him when you are well he will understand.
