LIVING WITH SOMEONE WITH SEVERE ME


You tread such a fine line between coping and falling
apart when you try to live your marriage within the context of
Chronic Illness.
Living with someone with Severe ME, either you give up or
you try and size up the situation and then take responsibility
for doing something about it; the choice you have to make,
every moment of every day, is a stark one.
It is a choice that makes all the difference between the person
being left with nothing or with at least some glimmer of hope
that, somehow, some day their needs may be met. It is a choice that says “I am with you” or “I abandon you, because you are too difficult to live with, too difficult to help.”
