Re: Husbands and how they cope with it

My hubby really is going to deserve a Sainthood by the time we are done with this roller coaster. Between getting really sick about 6 months ago with odd auto immune type symptoms. (Mouth sores, extreme exhaustion, skin rashes etc) that were never given a confirmed diagnosis, to discovering I was hypothyroid, then into near constant bleeding and the rapid growth of my fibroid s, and now 2 infected molars that need to be pulled out poor hubby has pretty much been on his own half a year all ready.

It has gotten to the point that I fear being touched at all. Seems every time some one touches me I get a new unexplained rash/boil/infection etc. So he's been lucky to get a helping "hand" 2 or 3 times in all those months. I guess this is a true test of our vows. I try to make sure I tell him often how important his support is and how much I miss our intimacy. He really has been my rock, I just hope the stress doesn't wear him down and make him resentful.

Babe if your lurking here, you being by my side means more than you will ever know!

Re: Husbands and how they cope with it

When I first started having problems with pain during intercourse, my husband and I were dating and very young. At first he thought that I was faking the pain because the doctors I went to basically ignored my concerns and tried to tell me it was in my head. That was until I found a new doctor that did a diagnostic laparoscopy and found endometriosis. Then my problem became real for him, and he's been very supportive since then. We've gone almost 7 years with very little sex because of the pain. Sometimes he gets frustrated, but he does understand. When I had finally exhausted all of my options for treatment, and the doc said I needed a hyster, I thunk he was more happy about getting rid of my pain than I was. He said he would have liked more kids in the future, but he also said that me not having pain was more important to him. Plus, there's always adoption.
