Lyme takes a toll...

My wife of almost 7-years I think she will leave me...

I have been sick almost our intire relationship, Lyme as left me many times in a deep depression.

I guess it is all to hard for Miss Ekim...

My heart is broken in many ways this morning. She told me last night she wants to go back to BG, think about us...

I am very sad...

Re: Lyme takes a toll...

I am very sorry your going through this. There is another going through this same thing on the boards today too.

I have been sick for 10 years and my hubby and I have been married for 5. I know it takes its toll on him mentally and financially.

I don't really know what to say except that I am thinking of you today.

Sending hugs... deb

Re: Lyme takes a toll...

Oh Mike, I am so sorry to hear. This disease stinks!

To suffer through a long term, debilitating illness is hard enough without relationships breaking apart.

Of course you are sad. I would be too. Even if it doesn't actually happen, just having it said out loud as a possibility is saddening.

I don't know where "BG" is, but I hope its not too far away.

She married you because she loves you. She stayed with you because she loves you.

I pray that she is reminded of why she fell in love with you to begin with and that things can get straightened out.

This is not a death sentence, at least she told you out loud that she's thinking about it - dialog is always a good sign.

You know, there are counselors who specialize in relationships involving long term illness. Perhaps you both can go, or even just you.

I hope you don't feel guilt over having been sick and depressed. Anyone living with a long term illness gets depressed. And Lyme is not your fault. its no ones fault.

Hang in there today and know that I am thinking of you and sending out a prayer for you both.

Re: Lyme takes a toll...

Hi Mike. I am so sorry to hear this. I know you have both been through so much.

I hope she is open to try counseling.

You are in my prayers also.

Re: Lyme takes a toll...

Hi Mike. Just wanted to let you know that I am thinking of you.

I have found strength in surrounding myself around good people. Not only family but people who are strong from the challenges they have also faced in their lives. It helps me to hear others and how they handled the desperation and despair that some of us are going through.

You told me once that your finance left you and how she called you a "loser."
You picked up the pieces and developed a better business and found a better match. You inspired me with that story.
