Dave, I’m so very sorry to read that. Its awful. What happens to “in sickness and in health”?
I wanted to reply because this also happened to me. My husband was a fireman, he was very sporty and we used to go for long walks etc, then 3 years after we married, I injured my back and was flat out (and 17 years on, no better!) After my first back op failed, and I was flat out in agony, he started going out a lot in the evenings (I thought with mates) saying he needed some time away from my “disability”. Turned out he was seeing a Policewoman, who he then left me for! His passing shot was “you’ll never get anyone interested in you because of your back!”
Anyway, it was a hideous time for me, and I so feel for you and all you are going through. But I just want you to know that now, years later yes, but anyway, I am married to a wonderful South African guy who is very cool about my disability and doesnt make me feel bad for being ill or immobile a lot of the time, and puts up with my tears and frustrations at times, so HANG IN THERE.
At the time, I thought my life was over, but now, I realise life is so much better than it was with him.
Really feel for you Dave
