Well I can tell you my poor husband suffers terribly in that dept. When you feel like crap all the time that is the last thing you really are interested. Also alot of our meds make us feel like crap too. So all you can do is love him for him. Pressuring or always asking him about it is only going to alienate him more. We have so much thrown at us daily (because it seems to be always changing), life itself can be hard sometimes. I know I probably didn't give you an answer you would like to hear, but this disease is very very difficult on us and those who love us. I try to be the best wife I can be, and luckily for me my husband is very understanding. Although I think at times he gets frustrated too.
