Is your spouse chronically ill? How is it affecting you?
Thanks to lonely46 for starting this group.
Living with a chronically ill partner can be devastatingly lonely and frustrating, and it's not something society really lets us talk about.
The issue is not about whether we love or care about our ill spouse, it's about the harsh "side effects" that the caregiver suffers. While it's never easy to live with chronic illness, it's also not easy for the caretaker.
Let's share stories about life as the caretaker and the hardships (as well as the joys) of life. We can find comfort and support in knowing that we're not alone.
