But they are tears of joy, not tears of sorrow.
The most difficult thing one can do is to get in a relationship with somebody who is a bit screwy in the head, and God bless the person who can deal with it in a caring manner. And except for the occassional time (we're human after all), he's done so well at dealing with me, and I love him.
[edit: Errr, or not. There's something amazing about sitting with a computer in my lap like I'm doing right now, and not having any wires connected to it, and still be able to post to LJ. Ain't technology wonderful?]
