We’ve been together for 30 years. The last two years have been very hard, some days I feel like leaving and never coming back. I don’t feel loved or needed anymore by my husband. We haven’t been intimate in over six months, very seldom even touch each other.
He is a heavy drinker and it totally disgusts me; every day he gets drunk. It’s the same thing day after day. He is killing himself by destroying his liver. He tells me he loves me but he can’t stop drinking because he needs it for pain relief.
I’m miserable, I think I love him and he does take care of me. I have a permanent trachea due to having my voice box removed from cancer. Some days I wish I would’ve died. I want to fall back in love with him, I want to be happy again but I don’t know how. I want to have the urge to make love again. I would like some advice or learn of your similar experience. Thank you.”
