I've been married for 34 years, and I'd say we have a pretty strong marriage. I'm almost 100% housebound and have quite a severe case of ME/CFS. My husband retired a year ago, and gradually seems gone more and more of the time. He's a musician, and goes to music festivals and jams, in addition to social gatherings with friends. The other day he went to Universal Studios for most of the day. I feel like I'm between a rock and a hard place. On one hand, I don't want to even try to restrict his times away from home. After all, just because I'm ill, why should he have to limit any aspect of his life. I want him to be happy. On the other hand, I'm starting to have times when I feel abandoned and resentful. I tried discussing my feelings with him once, but he seemed perplexed. I've looked on our calendar for June, and see that's he's going to a 2-week music festival. In August, he'll be gone for almost a week; in September, for 2 weeks. This, in addition to other social events, like a friend's wedding in September. Any thoughts for how I can deal with this? Have any of you dealt with this? If so, how?
