haf128 created discussion I was a bad husband
1 month ago

My wife was diagnosed in 2010 (I think) and we have just recently separated due primarily to my lack of empathy. I do not think I am a bad person or that my behavior is or was intentional, or maybe it was I do not really know, but I fell short nonetheless. I know I was not as empathetic or supportive to my wife as I should have been. I am here to seek input from others on what they have experienced and hope to learn how to be supportive and empathic in an effort to save my marriage and keep the love of my life and also for myself to change the way I am. Her name is Amy and I love her.

I would get frustated with working all day, coming home, cooking dinner and caring for a two children most evenings and get upset at my wife for not helping as much as I thought she should.  In hindsight, I should have been grateful for my health and done everything in my power to help her. 

I am seeking advice from those that live with MS patients and how they manage and express their empathy and support.

 

Thank you so much,

 

Henry

hi....I had an AVM on my left frobtal lobe removed in 2002. I've developed a seizure disorder as a result of scar tissue. I've been getting scanned once a year since. My brain was clear in Oct if 2012 and by April of 2013 I had a dozen lesions...and by May, spinal tap confirmed. My neurologist was really surprised. She did not know of any correlation, but there must be. Could all the radiation from my scans trigger something? Did they disrupt something in my brain with the dye they always inject. I wish I had the answers.
