I've been wanting to ask you if you had seen this or were thinking about it. I'll put it on my viewing list. I saw the guy who plays the best friend on the Daily Show. He talked about the real life origins of the screenplay. It made me want to see it, but I was so hesitant.

I've been wrestling with the idea that when one person in a relationship has an illness, they both do in some sense. But it's difficult when you are not actually sick to give yourself permission to...I'm not sure what exactly. What I can say is that I have not felt it was my place, in my own relationship, to claim the suffering even though I experienced a great deal of the pain and chaos.

Thanks for sharing.

About "biting the bullet", I believe it has something to do with pain. I think it is what people did when there was a lack of anesthesia and someone needed something to bite down on during painful procedures. Of course, now that I've written that, I realize I could have just googled it to be sure but...oh well.
