I keep getting into a rut with respect to knowing how to deal with my wife's health issues. She has fibromyalgia. She keeps encouraging me to take care of myself and do the things I love, which is all fine and dandy...but more and more, it seems we are less and less able to do things together, especially things that involve ANY kind of physical activity. I am a very physical person, in almost every respect. Dealing with this health issue is deepening my own struggle with depression. At the same time, it is deepening my love for her. I want to know how I can help her, how I can be a "rock" for her. I find myself worrying that it is just getting worse, and getting into disaster thinking about it, and really having no idea what to do. I just go round and round with this angst and struggle. If you either have fibromyalgia or are married to someone with fibro, do you have any advice for me? Are there any books you can recommend? Any helpful massage techniques? Any thoughts on ways to remain/gain hopefulness? The pain she goes through is clearly 300 times greater than any psychological pain I feel...but the bravery with which she copes blows me away. If only I were as brave as she..... Thanks for any help you can offer.
