Chronicles of a Happy Married Life

‘Til death do us part

Have you ever felt that breathing is painful and that loneliness is eternal? That’s how I felt when Migs was diagnosed with TB.

Being a witness to Migs’ sufferings and knowing that I can’t do anything about it is a huge burden. He’s been taking TB meds since April 1 but it has been a week since he started coughing again. We were supposed to visit his doctor last week but had to postpone it because he’s not feeling well (he couldn’t get up). Last night, we talked about death. How he wanted to “free” me from all the pain that I am going through because of him. I was hurt because I felt that he was insensitive and ungrateful. But then I realized that I actually married a very loving husband who still thinks of my welfare even if he is chronically ill. I married a great man and I wanted to inspire him and help him live. Our conversation last night reminded me of the things that I’ve learned from our Marriage Preparations Seminar. I will never get tired of taking care of Migs and each day is a reminder of our wedding vows… “Til death do us part”. Have a blessed Sunday, everyone! 💗

  1. I hope Migs will always be ok and he will always continue to treat you above anything else. You are blessed to have him, as he is to have you. TB can be managed – so it will be ok.

  2. I’m so sorry for both of you. Chronic Illness is hard on the whole family. I can’t imagine what you go through and wish you both the best. We never know how strong we are until we have to be.

  3. Get well soon to the husband. I will include him in our prayers and will ask my boys to do the same. When we have prayer intentions, we pray for the other’s wish because we believe that praying for others is more effective than asking for your own need.

  4. I completely know what you are saying when you feel like you can’t breathe. It is hard to stay grounded to reality because your mind is racing. I am sorry you are both going through this horrible time and I hope Migs gets well soon. It is so scary when it is a health related issue because you feel like you don’t have control.

  5. You are very brave to share your struggles like this. I think it’s so much healthier than keeping it all inside. When my mother got sick, I was scared to talk about it with people, but now I wish I had been more open. And you are lucky to have such a loving husband. The best of luck to both of you!

      We wanted to make sure that everyone who has symptoms of TB will not be afraid to get checked.
      Thank you, Stella.

  6. God bless you both! Iknow Migs can surpass this trial with the help of your love to each other.

  7. I’ve read about your other posts about Migs and I am really praying he’ll get well the soonest. I’ve been including him in my prayers since the day I’ve read about your post. God bless your marriage. Stay strong. Keep the faith.

  8. So sweet and kind of you. I wish to meet the one who’s meant for me someday. Though I am not in a hurry but praying for the right one to come at the right time, eventually. Also, I am sorry to hear about your husband’s condition too. He’ll be healed just like the others. We will include his health in our prayers including you two as a husband and wife. God bless you both and your family!

  9. Everything will be ok. I hope he will be ok soon. Praying for his fast recovery. You can definitely pass through this.

  10. That is very heartbreaking. My biggest fear is to watch someone I love, suffer so much pain while I can’t do anything about it. But I admire your strength. Just keep your faith and never lose hope. There’s always a rainbow after the rain. God bless you!

  11. Hi Migs and Alaine,

    It is in human nature to be afraid of death because the questions that pops up is “What happens when I die? How about the Afterlife?”The fear of separation from our loved ones make us question about our own mortality and the pain of being left behind.

    As far as you both love each other, no suffering or pain can keep you apart. You are so blessed having each other. I hope Migs will be better soon and heal fast. Thank you for sharing you thoughts along with that lovely photo of you two.
