When my husband and I married 9 years ago we took those vows without hesitation and with joy. He had full knowledge of my fibromyalgia and degenerative disc disease but at that time I was still functioning pretty well on a daily basis. Since then I have had both shoulders repaired TWICE! I had two torn tendons repaired in my right hip and all the bursitis cleaned out of it and could not walk for 3 weeks. I had 2 back surgeries, first for a spinal pain stimulator implant and then two titanium spacers at L3/4 and L4/5. Next month I will have another back surgery to replace the old stimulator. The icing on the cake is I have ADVANCED DRY MACULAR DEGENERATION which means I am basically leagaly blind. I’m no longer allowed to drive in my state. My point is while I think my husband fully meant his vows on that day 9 short years ago I think his patience is wearing thin. Now we have been through health scares with him too. He went through a cancer scare last year and treatment but Praise God he is all clear! It just seems like evertime I open my mouth he snaps at me lately. We really have NO INTIMACY anymore and while I THINK he loves me I’ve just really started to question if he LIKES me or likes being around me. I feel like I’ve become an obligation and a burden.
