I was also diagnosed with fibromyalgia touch!!!๐Ÿ˜ค๐Ÿ˜ค๐Ÿ˜ฅ๐Ÿ˜ฅ๐Ÿ˜ฐ

I imagine there are many who fit in that category. Anytime a spouse or child has a chronic health issue it puts a tremendous ressure on all involved. The divorce rate in such cases is staggering.

I am one of those whose marriage didn't make it. But to be honest I am not sure it would have made it otherwise either.

Am so sorry you are going through this, too. :(

There are many here. I'm sorry you are among them. Hugs love and prayers for strength to get through this time! ๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ™๐ŸŒธ

I'm soo sorry to hear that you're going thro this, I hope that even tho you have parted ways I hope things can stay amicable between you so that the separation and divorce won't be as hard or drawn out as it could be.
Sending you positive vibes and warm healing hugs xx

Thank you everyone so very much.
I hope to try and stay positive. But, finding it very difficult to do so. Having been with him since i was 19 and now 43, I feel that I really have nothing more to offer to anyone or anything.
The only thing that has kept me waking up the next day is my two children. My daughter who is 14 and my son who has Asperger's, who is 13.
I know that the Sun is always shinning some where. I just wish that it was shinning again in mine.

Sassypants....love the name BTW ๐Ÿ˜‰....you will need to sit down and first talk thro with your husband about contact to dicide what is best and you will also need to involve your kids (I'm not sure what level of Aspergers your son has so forgive me if I speak out of turn) to see what they want to do as at their ages they can decide what they want (well that's the way it works here in England).

I know it seems hard and bleak at the moment but things will get better and you are worth soo much more xx

Sassy.. I know it must look bleak now. I can't imagine going through what you are. I was only married 7 years and my children weren't his. That made it easier I think. But even on those darkest of days I found at least three things each day to be thankful for. It helped me to keep positive as well as to focus on whats important. ((((gentle hugs ))))

My wife and I have been married almost 27 years now at my conditions are taking a toll on us. In afraid one day i will be the next to be single in this group.

Sassy, you have plenty to offer, as we all do. Those who walk away are quitters, who were not committed to the vows taken, the promises made. This has been a great shock and disappointment to you. But please don't allow his own insecurities and defects make you think it's your fault. Your health is not what caused him to leave; it's just the excuse he's using because he's too weak. Sending you gentle hugs & a shoulder to cry on! ๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ™๐ŸŒธ

Well said Flappy!

Not lost a spouse but have lost friends and also family has walked away. They don't understand and they just make me feel like I am a waste of the air they breathe and take up space that could be used for something useful.
I'm used to it at this point but if you are lucky enough to meet a friend that is so amazing that the only way I can describe it is having my bff as my soulmate. She's always supportive and always lets me know I'm loved. You find out fast who really cares when the chips are down. You have an entire community of wonderful people here to support you...
Oh, by the way, what Flappsy said!!โคด๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’•
