Caring for someone you love changes everything
Help us support people like Michelle
My husband and I very rarely have any quality time together to be husband and wife.
I suffer from fibromyalgia, degenerative disk problems, malabsorption, irritable bowel disease as well as depression. I am also under investigation for a bowel disease. I am housebound – I don’t have the freedom to be independent.
My husband juggles being my carer with the help of our daughter and a full-time job. His own health is beginning to suffer, he is constantly exhausted and stressed. My health issues mean I cant work anymore. With only one wage coming in we simply can’t afford to enjoy ourselves.
We’re both in desperate need of a break. We want to be ourselves again.
