how does he....and how do I

How does he manage to take care of all 4 of us?  And do his job?  Under more difficult and constrained circumstances?  And manage all the new logistics?  And do what he needs to do to keep himself healthy and functioning?  And hold up under this new and overwhelming state we are forced into?  And manage to be there for me?  To to offer, actually, to insist on being my support?

And what can I do to support him?

    1. I'm starting to see that it's important to him that he does. Still i wonder though.....

  2. I think the best support you can give him is simply being there, making it as easy for him as you can, even if does seem in little ways.

    How does he do it? thats something i wander myself....how do they do it? but i think its simply who they are, they need to do it.

    1. I'm seeing this - he doesn't feel he does everything, but he does need for me to rely on him. i think you're right - it really is who he is.

  3. I have no answers on this.
    But I do have complete confidence that you two will find a way.

    1. Thank you - I'm heading towards cautiously optimistic.

  4. I second tori.
    And maybe, just maybe, this is one of those times when admitting that you need what he is giving you is a kind of support in itself?
