Last year a posed a discussion about the man I was dating and my frustration with trying to cope with this disease that he has. We are now engaged and it should be the happiest time for us but it is very stressful. His condition seem to be worsening and there is nothing I can do about it. I have tried to educate myself as much as I can about it, but I every time I mention something to him he doesn't think it will work or has said he has tried it.
I have read as much as I can about this and I feel helpless. Because I guess I feel that if I am with him and love him that this should help him somehow. Sometimes the things he says makes me think that he has given up. I try to keep him involved and active but sometimes he just can't. Sometimes it is just a few bad days but lately it seems like the bad days have been turning into bad weeks. It is so hard for me because I feel neglected and lonely. I try to stay positive and supportive but I great frustrated not necessarily at him but at the situation. He is able to function at work alright but when he gets home and then on the weekends it is so hard for him and he has nothing left to give me because of dealing with the pain.
I love him and I know I don't want to be without him. But I don't know if I can do this. I just wish that I could find some way to help him so that we could have a little bit more normal relationship.
