Who says we need to be in person with someone to enjoy tea together? Or an IV bag of fluids, a transfusion, or dialysis? Set a time to face time. Find your lover and if you can’t be with them, arrange to face time. It can be a simple few moments in the middle of a day to actually share a quick cup of tea, or, it can be being available for moral support. BOTH make a difference.
Can’t pull it off yourself? Track down a friend who can, or arrange a family member to set aside some time. Do it for your partner on the receiving end of things, or, do it for your partner who watches you on the receiving end.
