"I took care of him in many ways, but he took care of me in so many ways. I demanded almost as much of our relationship after his disability as before-basically telling him: 'You need to be my husband. I am there to support you; you need to support me.' I think it kept our relationship alive. Because if I had given up and said, 'Oh, you're sick. I'm not going to ever ask anything of you,' it would've belittled him. He was a willing and loving participant in our relationship, and he was an incredible husband because of that."
