SinfulSunday: A Twirl

Before she became disabled and bed/wheelchair bound, Silverdrop used to dance. Here she is, giving me a twirl – bra and pantie-less.  🙂

So this is a happy/sad photograph for us. And, in a very real sense (and she agrees), this human has gone and won’t be back. So we sort of followed the prompt of “No humans”.

A twirl.

    I have to be honest, I do feel incredibly sad on reading this post. I do understand all too well the waving goodbye to the previously healthy you, and having to embrace, whether you want to or not, your new limitations etc.
    I find I get very resentful of mine, I get days where I want to rage against the injustice….
    But then I also have to remember that, ironically, I’m now happier than I’ve ever been. Ihave the most wonderful man in my life, and I’m getting to be the me I never had the confidence to be.

    So yeah, those kind of memories are bittersweet, but you adore each other, and that is worth so somuch xx

    I’m gratified to know that you still have a very good and sexy kink life together, but I know it can’t be easy to see health fade {{{hugstoyouboth}}}

    I, yeah, I don’t really know what to say.

    I understand exactly what you’re saying here, but it makes me so terribly sad. It’s not quite true though, because if it’s the capacity to love and show caring to others that makes people human, you have it in spades.

    This image is bitter sweet indeed!! It definitely is hard to see a carefree person in this image when this person isn’t able to be around. *hugs*

    As for the prompt itself, this image is an incredible use of the prompt. It truly does portray “no human” when this carefree individual isn’t able to be around. Therefore, it’s perfect, sexy, wonder, incredible and so much more. Words just don’t describe it and for that this is my favorite image this week.

    This is such a beautiful and touching post. As someone who has gone through something similar with someone I’m very close to I can understand how heartbreaking it can be to go through such drastic life changes.

      It has been heartbreaking at times, yes. Especially when I remember the ball of energy I first met. Most of us expect our physical condition to worsen as we age, but to have it taken at a young age is very hard.

      I can look back and smile, for Silverdrop, she prefers not to think back too much, because what was lost is so hard to think about.

      But we’re okay as a couple, and stronger and more in love than ever, 🙂

    Everyone has already said so much in response already, so not much more to add other than the honesty of your writing is always so inspiring. Xx

    Thank you for sharing so much of your lives with us. I too was incredibly moved by this photo and your post. You remind me not only to celebrate my days as they are but also to be confident that no matter what happens, happiness and love (and sexy times) are possible.

      Happiness and a great sex life are very much possible when your body fails you. Sadly, many people, including medical and other professionals, assume people like us don’t have a sex life.

      We didn’t have sex as recently as last night, for example. 😉

    Your photos and words ALWAYS make me smile. And I mean that in a GOOD way!!!
    They show strength and love . . . and very often fun . . . those are things we surely all crave.
    Thank you for always sharing . . . it is good for all of us!!!

    How to reply to this? I have had to think about this one quite hard!

    What I see here is an image of carefree abandon, which we all have when we believe that we will always be the same (which is as it should be).

    I know how health can so greatly affect how the body works and how disabilities (physical or mental) create limitations and difficulties. It is how we deal with these that matters and you have both dealt with them wonderfully. Your relationship appears just as strong (if not stronger) and you find ways around the problems to still enjoy each other which is so important.

    Things may not be as they were but they are what they are now and you do the best that you can and this shines through your blog.

      Thank you. 🙂

      We are very happy together. In person, we turn it down a bit, ‘cos we don’t want to embarrass people. 😉

    I have been trying to decide what to say. This post is so poignant. The contrast between the picture and your words makes it incredibly moving. I am glad you have each other.

    I wanted to say sorry, but also a thank you. About a year ago I was diagnosed with a chronic condition that has and will continue to affect my sexuality. When I asked the Neuro, he shrugged and looked embarrassed. When I asked the clinic, they gave me dry and clinical journal articles. Googling gave me nothing but a terrible sense of hopelessness.

    This made me sad, but also showed me adjustment and the possibility of still being sexual in different ways. I’m sorry you are in this place, but tremendously grateful for your honesty.

      Thank you so much for commenting. I didn’t mention that I have acute osteoarthritis so despite me being 54 (I got it young) and Silverdrop 43, we are both very disabled.

      If you’re able to look back through this blog (it goes back a few years), you will see that we have a full and fulfilling sex life. It’s different to what it used to be, and maybe not as frequent as we’d like, but it is very good. You have to get inventive. Also, we have a lot of sex toys.

      Feel free to ask any questions about our experience if you wish – neither of us are shy. 🙂

    I’ve been so very absent from all of the blogs I used to enjoy due to my own tragedy that sometimes I forget others are moving on, living their lives, experiencing their own sadnesses and joys.

    This is beautiful, and so bittersweet. It brought tears to my eyes. Bless you and Silverdrop as you go forward in your journey.

    1. SilverHubby Post author

      Hello Jade! It’s so good to see you here.

      Thank you so much. We’re so sorry for your loss. May your own journey be smooth and happy as you move forward with your next chapter.

    This is a very powerful and raw piece. I find myself really quite emotional at your words and sentiment. I know that life for you two is far from how you would wish it to be but having spent a few hours sharing your company I also know that I saw two people who have a very precious and powerful love bond and that despite all the hurdles look blissfully happy together.

      Thank you. But take care with your words, or people really will believe there are two of us. 😉

      It was so hard to post it.

      We are almost embarrassingly happy together. 🙂

    I love the comment “I’m sure she still dances for you”.
    And I want to disagree with you on this human is no longer writing, but who am I to argue with how you feel?

    1. SilverHubby Post author

      I may not have been clear…

      She’s rarely seen on here, although occasionally on Twitter. Part of the grieving process we both went through as our physical health got worse, was to let go of the old, healthy us. We are what we are now and, while we of course have a background wish that some things are different, we’re happy.

      Just not who we were.

  15. Marie Rebelle

    Like Jane I felt tears choking reading your words. Silverdrop looks lovely in the photo and I’m sure in her mind she still dances for you. Hugs to both of you.

    Oh, my. Firstly, Silverdrop looks so carefree and lovely in this image. It’s beautiful. Secondly, upon reading your words, I wanted to shed a tear or two. Things change – and, sometimes, not always in the way we want (or expect) them to. Huge hugs. Jane xxx

    1. SilverHubby Post author

      Thanks for the hugs. I actually found this picture harder to post than the ones that showed my belly in all its broken glory a while ago.
