I'm at the Well Spouses Association meeting in the suburbs of Chicago. I got in barely in time for dinner, so don't have much sense of the group yet, but the people I sat down with instantly welcomed me and asked me about myself and my spouse. They liked my description that I am coping well but it is damn hard. The program tonight was honoring the founders of the organization at its 20th anniversary, but even that made me feel a bit teary to hear people talking about lives like what I now imagine.
