I’ve been married for 15 years. My husband is chronically


I’ve been married for 15 years. My husband is chronically ill and I’ve been his care taker for 7 years. I’m tired of feeling lonely and sad. Lately I’ve been thinking about divorce.

I'm sorry you're in that situation! Feeling unappreciated by someone you love is certainly hard to ignore and move on!.. (And from being in a similar boat when it comes to no intimacy and having to be the one to initiate, I feel your pain too!) (((Hugs)))

Wow! I think you are wonderful to give so much. He is really blessed to have you. Do you have any family or friends that can give some help and support ? Do you have any church groups or organizations near you that provide care time so you can get out and have some time for yourself? God bless you for your
tremendous sacrifice.


I am so sorry you are dealing with such a difficult situation. These forums are great for sharing burdens, venting, and asking for advice... Did you know when people get married both bring their own luggage? I want to mean that people bring their own wounds from their families to the marriage. Have you ever thought that your husband must be able to face some trauma that he went through as a child? Is for humble couples to seek for help outside the marriage. Have you thought of encourage your husband to join to a marriage support group? I leave you the link that you can seek on the internet if you are interested: Humility, forgiveness and acceptance are the first steps for change and healing. Have you considered of forgiving your husband? Forgiveness does not mean that he is doing right but it is that you appreciate more the relationship that you have with him and let go each other differences. Sometimes we can think that divorce is the best solution for the problems in marriage. However it would make worst things and would bring devastated consequences not just for both of you and your family. I’m hopefully both of you can restore your relationship first because when there’s love between each other I think always there’s second chances, there’s always hope and you can overcome all the obstacles in the way. Forgiveness will restore your joy and peace. There’s no perfect person so there’s no perfect marriage. But there’s couples that they never give up for their relationship. This list-ly is extremely important for you are going through: Sending you hugs. I will keep you and your family in my prayers, my friend. Keep us posted- Ok?
