Sample text

Perhaps, by taking over her responsibilities, he continued to reinforce her sick role and extricated himself from marital conflicts. The added responsibilities and the loss of hope of a recovery in this case did not seem to have any adverse consequences on Mr. Falconer. Discussion of Cases The first two cases were selected because they represented the most common kind of health problems encountered by the spouses of chronic pain patients. The question of burden in the chronic pain population is generally associated with more responsibilities for the well partner, accentuated by financial problems.

Falconer is complex, as it seems to suggest that her illness resolved a long-standing marital conflict, although there was a major shift of responsibilities from the patient to the well spouse without any ill effect.

Mr. Davies not only lost his major source of support, he developed inordinate guilt over his wife’s condition.
