Tiki I am 58 and my DH is 65 and I was dxd five years ago although it all started about 10 yrs ago. So I'm sure fibro puts a lot more pressure on younger married couples.
Communication and education I think is the key to making a marriage work when one half of a couple has a disorder like fibro. MY DH about drove me nuts at first thinking he had to find a way to fix me cause he couldn't accept the fact that I had something that couldn't be fixed. I must say he got on my last nerve many times over it. I was devastated and depressed and I needed comfort and understanding not his off the wall ideas on how to get it fixed.
I'm happy to say that he is educated on fibro as much as someone that doesn't have it can be. I think we have both accepted fibro, doesn't mean we either one like it. I'm sure he does miss the old me as much as I do. It has meant a lot more work for him that he never did before but he was pretty spoiled before with all I did. If he does recent anything that I can no longer do he doesn't say anything to me about it.
I hope you can talk to each other about what is bothering you and not let it come to a boil before it is discussed.
The thread on sex is very good.
luv and hugs
