I love my wife. She is my world. But she is almost 150 lbs overweight, sick all the time, recently developed vertigo, suffers from PTSD, has flashbacks, night terrors, and she has lost every baby we’ve tried to have together. I am 34, and I want to be a dad, and do fun, adventurous things with my wife and kids, but I am stuck in a childless house, taking care of her full time, and I see no light at the end of the tunnel. I love her, don’t get me wrong. I am fully willing to sacrifice my life in order for her to be safe and cared for, but I just want a break. I wish she would get better. At least for a while.Apr 27
Being a caretaker is difficult in ways most other people don’t understand. Seeing someone you live in immense pain for weeks/months at a time is it’s own special kind of torture. I’ve been where you are on the loved one’s health health thing. There’s light at the end of the tunnel though friend.
