    Tomorrow are 5 years since Kev's SCI.
    He's been sick all week & I think He'll be "off colour" next week as well.
    Every year is the same.
    Is like he loses all will to live during this period.
    Today He had a fever,dysreflexic +++ very quiet & I dont know what to do anymore.. plus everything I did today was wrong.
    I would sell my soul to turn back the time .

    Can you try distraction so he doesn't dwell on it? Maybe rent a funny movie? I arranged for our cruise to cover the day of my wife's "anniversary" - she forgot all about it. I don't know what I can do next year to beat that, though!
    I (along with most of the others here on CareCure) sure know what you mean about turning back time.

    For the past week Kev has not gone with his bike or exercised at all.
    Today He's told me that death is near.
    Me being the sensitive (not) wife I am ,replied :" not today , I'm not allowing you to have visitors. That brought a fleeting smile to his face.
    He's lost about 5 kg ( I think ) during past week since He 's not eating.
    I do so hate this "aniversary".
    Thanks for the advice,I'll try the movie

    It's strange how our anniversaries affect us. Mine rarely bothers me. Does Kev ever post? Sometimes it can help to vent a bit if his bottled up feelings are making him ill

    No Kev does not post as his hands are quite contracted and painful.
    His hands are semi-fisted and spasm all the time.Before s/c treatment his hands were like tight fists.They are very painfull as well.
    He is quiet by nature but now even more.
    We went out to the next door neighbour for lunch (was her birthday) but 1/2 hr later he wanted to to home.
    Even our neighbour mentioned his weight loss & she' s not very observant at all.
    I wish He was more like me ( I talk ++++)
