I Am Lovely......and Understanding....why Isnt He?

My husband has MS.....have written about that elsewhere, It is obviously his disability that prevents a physical act. However it has been 10 years now!!!!!I have been loving caring giving brought up our daughter with little support....am quite bubbly....seductive....sexy at times....so what an idiot not to at least touch.....feel.....bond with. I have communicated ....cried....to no avail.

The physical act shouldnt be the be all and end all ......where is the loving...I am understanding why isnt he. We havent even slept in the same bed for 2 years now.....great role models for our daughter!!!! a sexless marriage I can cope with......no love even though he says he still does but dosent show it in any way- I cant cope with it.

10 years is a long time......

To all of you who can possibly do something about it.......please please try.....communicate.....

Being married to a seriously ill person takes its toll. I seriously think you need to arrange for a professional caregiver to give you a weekend away. <br />

Take your daughter somewhere fun for the weekend. It could help both of you.

You can't be selfish, SELFLESS maybe. I don't feel that you're asking too much. Maybe it's time that you take a break and think about yourself for a change.

Lilac....thank you for your reply...I am finding ...albeit very slowly that to share some of this...although hard does help.....and just to have a token of support means a lot. I thought perhaps I was being selfish.......so a hug is much needed. X

My heart goes out to you. I don't really know much about MS so I don't quite know what to say. I can't imagine the hurt and anguish that you must be going through. <br />
Hugs to you.
