:I really need help, too. Jack suffers from all of the "usual" itching and cramping. But he is also causing us a great deal of hurt because of what seems to be personality changes. One minute he is sweet and gentile, but the next he is angry and faultfinding for the most rediculous things,(Whoever didn't cap the toothpaste won't
brush for a week). This is not Jack. "If you won't take out the garbage, maybe you are the garbage". About 5 days ago, a woman that we both
know informed me that she was trying to help Jack with his GWS. I was under the assumption that knowone knew about that but myself. Apparently, she claims to be a "healer" and can "help" him get
better. I "thinking to be a good wife" got on-line to find info on other GWS. Imagine this, he was furious with me. "How dare I talk about that with other people". I Know that tomorrow he will be apologetic for all that he said and did. But the hurt still lasts. Are the symptoms real, or just an excuse to behave badly? I really hope someone responds soon. My marriage may be over!
