Hi Jessaccount22 and welcome to Healingwell. Sorry for the reason you have to be here though. My first husband couldn't handle my illness. Whats sad in my case is I had my 2nd flare since diagnosis while with him and was in the hospital for a month. He was really frightened that I was going to die and he would be left to care for the girls. We made it thru that flare, after he finally confessed his fears. I went into remission after that flare and things seemed to quiet down. But the whole time I was in remission I still had those bad times when I had joint pain or those bad days when you have eaten something you shouldn't have. But at the time I wasn't really well educated about
Crohns so didn't put the two together. The joint pain was always there in my nearly 20 remission. But even though I wasn't having Crohns problems I was having alot of issues with herniated discs in my neck. So every few months my neck and back would go out and knock me down for a few days. He just couldn't handle a sick wife, so we ended up divorcing.
I am now married to the most amazing guy who has actually seen me during my worst years with Crohns. My husband cooks for me, massages some part of my body every single day, makes me soup when I can't get anything else down. He worries about
me but not to the point that is out of control. His worry is more out of love. But when he is ill, I do my best to make him comfortable too. I hope and pray that if things don't work out with your hubby, you can find someone who loves you like you deserve. Love in my opinion, should always be unconditional. Good luck to you sweetie!
