Supporting A Loved One With A Disability

My husband’s condition is not something I talk about often but it isn’t something I hide. My husband suffers from epileptic seizures, to be exact, he has absence seizures. His seizures are unpredictable, they can happen at any moment, they usually last around a minute. In retrospect, we live a
