Hi Again Bec,
I hope things have continued to improve. Your husband sounds a little like mine - we have not really had ups and downs together, but I have had plenty myself! He (hubby), does not respond to any hint of conflict usually. We have both worked at communication - it does take work I think, but pre-armed is pre-warned. There many many emtional ups and downs for both people I think.
Now that things are improving ED wise for my husband, lately he has started to get back some of his previous "personality" and confidence but it has taken a few months. I found great peace in being able to spend a little time (2 weekend "retreats") on my own to think about
how I was handling it all, and reflecting on whether I was helping or hindering!
I am not sure if it is possible for you to take any time out, but I found it helped immensely, and was lucky that my husband understands.
On that note, I continue to pray for the safely of your son. Hope he is doing well, and hope Jeff is too.
Take care & keep busy. Hope things on the couple front are smoother now. Bye for now, Lana
