The nurse said I had to be immediate family!

hi,.. somehow i find this uncomfortable, yet oddly at ease with
typing into a blank screen. to vent my frustration, anger, and
denial as to what has occured to me... i can feel your hurt, and
times i once again felt all alone. here's my story.. ihope it
helps, it does me.. thanks in advanced.... and probably due to
the time (1:38 am) it will be in several parts....

i met the most incrediable friend over 9 years ago, we quicky be
came more, and the world has been ours for the capitvating, we
had helped eachother through multiple coaster rides, ups and
downs, a loss of a parent, countless number of friends, the ups
and down with careers, finally stability, soarring careers, goals
set, and being achieved, we were quickly on way to top of the
world. we had just found the abandoned building of our ultimate
dream, to renivate into a world of our own. .. and then things
went haywire After of much work fatigue, coulntless hours of
overtime, he called me, "honey, im tired.. i cant keep going...
they are killing me" ... and through my mind flashed.... ..the
fever that wouldnt break, the nagging cough, the loss of
appetite, the irratablility, the lack of energy, the soaking bed
I heard his voice tremble with unbearable pain he begged me to
take him to the er. i dropped what i was doing.. and went to his
side. when we arrived, the doctors werent sure what was causing
the pain. the tests, the proding, the poking, the constant blank
stares, the whispers. i wanted to yell whats going on... some
body tell me something,anything, i just need to know. then came
the nurse. "if you arent an immediate family member you need to
wait in the waiting room. seeing the terrified look on his face
saying 'dont leave me here.. alone.. im scared.. i need to be
held..protect me' the composure scall fell way below ground zero,
i unleashed a furry which would have put hurricane andrew to
shame, blurted... who the [censored] are you to tell me im not
immediate family, ive slept with him everynight for the past nine
years, we own a damn house together, two [censored] cars, joint bank
accounts, and if we were two concenting straight [censored] people
you wouldnt have a g*damn problem with it.... now deal...."
leaving an ashed toned nurse staring blankly in my direction, i
turned and politely reagained my post as partner. and thus the
journey of an recovery begings.. with a single needle .
