I think you would both benefit from marriage counselling. Your wife might not be aware of how you feel and how her behaviour affects you.
Hi Becky. What a difficult situation you are in. You cannot continue caring for your partner like this. It is far too much for one person to cope with. Has his anxiety and chronic fatigue got worse during these last 3 years? When did he last see a doctor? I think it is unreasonable that he won't sta...
Dear Sydneyaus. Thank you very much for your post and for all the useful advice in the Personal Declaration. I will copy it and keep it somewhere safe for the future. That info is just what I needed!
:)
Dear Bowlingbun, Thank you for your reply. I am so very sorry to hear that your husband died at such a young age. How very sad. Mum has been on Tramadol for approx 3 years. She only takes 1 tablet each day. Dear Sunny, Thank you for your reply. I will talk to Mum's GP next week and will mention the ...

When I give her her dinner she just says negative things about it, like 'Oh, I can't eat all that!' Today I hadn't even taken my coat off and she told me off...
I think you need to gently remind your husband about what was said in your marriage vows. Also you need to remind him that you gave up your job so that you could be together. Try to talk calmly to him. His savings obviously mean a great deal to him - but he cannot expect you to survive without any i...
Hello Joy and welcome to the forum. I do understand what you're going through. It sounds like you have been a brilliant daughter/ carer to your mum. You've make countless sacrifices along the way - giving up your business and a relationship and moving in with mum. This all started 7 years ago when y...
Hi Su and welcome to the forum. I understand that you want your husband to be more appreciative and loving towards you. It can be very difficult trying to change someone's behaviour, BUT you can change yours. From reading your post it sounds like you socialise a lot as a couple. Do you sometimes go ...
