What a great topic. What to do when you had time alone and now you have become two. It is not easy to make that adjustment, especially if the relationship is not that close.
I went through this when my husband became ill, and had a liver transplant. It has been over four years since his surgery and he was unable to return to work due to his medication.
I found myself always going some place. Church, shopping, the library, anything to go and get away for awhile. I can see now instead of finding the real me, I was running away.
Someone to talk to would have been ideal, but there was no one. I say find a support group for your self and the way you are feeling.
I later became ill myself and am now disabled and can no longer drive or go anywhere alone. So we are two more than we ever were and we still are not close.
Finding a world of computer friends to be positive with is my way of dealing. Posting about things that are me, no one else, like my inner child and self. Seeing the world through the eyes of this computer and seeing my friends worlds through their eyes. We have become unconditional friends. Accepting who we are, not judging what we look like, how we live, our race, creed, or color.
I keep all the negative think away from my internet world. I also use the computer into the wee hours of the morning. It is quiet, I can think better and I am finding the me that has been waiting to emerge from her cocoon.
No matter if the other half is around or I am alone. My interests are different from his and his from mine. I am positive and will someday be a beautiful butterfly. Can't stop me now!
