hello everyone,1st post on here so please excuse any faux pas I may make, my wifes been an MS sufferer for about 2yrs now and its only recently she has been slowly deteriorating, i.e. in bed for days,short tempered,etc, and whilst I can deal with this as part and parcel of this disease,im finding it harder and harder to be the husband I used to be. We have one child whom I sort out in the morning for school and after,run the house and work,albeit P/T and some nights,my wife works part time as well,it just feels now that there is no “WE”, if that makes sense? I love her dearly and want to be there for her but just feel this situation is getting worse by the day,im sorry to be all me,me,me,but it feels now that im just a hired help and not her man.
Our son thankfully is of an age where he slightly understands whats going on, but he misses doing activities with his mum and dad as well and how much can you tell an 8 yr old before you baffle him totally?, God I hate this disease so much, its taking my wife from me and my son! Im not leaving her anytime soon, love her too much,just feel totally overstretched and at the end of my tether
