Hey everyone. I'm new to the site. I joined to hopefully get some advise on how to deal with my wife's fibromyalgia. My wife suffers from multiple diseases. Fibromyalgia, endometriosis, bladder disease, etc.
We've been married for just over a year and she was diagnosed with fibromyalgia at a pretty young age. As her symptoms get worse and worse and the doctors don't really know how to help her, we're finding it to be affecting our marriage. Mainly our sex life. She has been unable to have sex with me because it is either to painful, or the meds she's on are affecting her second drive. As sex is an important part in a marriage, we've been lacking that intimate connection. I'm just wondering if anyone is experiencing the same thing and if anyone has any advice. It would be greatly appreciated.
I feel like I do a pretty good job helping around the house. I understand that she can't always do the cleaning that needs to be done, so I try to help out as much as I can with that. But her symptoms seem to be getting worse and worse and I'm getting overwhelmed with everything that needs to done.
