I myself do not have the disease(fibromyalgia). My wife and I have been married now for 2 years and her life is greatly affected by the threatening symptoms and conditions of this unforgiving disease. I do not hold anything against my wife for being who she is and doing what she can do.
Sometimes I think she is capable of doing so much more. I want her to be a more active person, to go out and exercise, walk, jog, and meet new friends. The pain with her is getting to be worse for her and seems to be making me think of it as a reason for her not to be as active as she wants to be.
I want to push her to be more active and less emotional. I feel I am failing at my job as her husband sometimes because she is having a flare up but I know it is not my fault. I love her!
