You may or may not know I married a man with disabilities. My husband, Neil has a form of muscular atrophy known as Charcot Marie-Tooth (CMT.) He also has chronic kidney disease and is currently in kidney failure, receiving dialysis, and awaiting a transplant.
In this episode of Just Us For Y’All, we discuss what it is like in our marriage, one of us having a disability and the other one being a caregiver. It’s not always easy, and sometimes it takes creativity and sacrifice on our parts, but we make it work because we love each other.
I also deal with a lot of fear about my husband’s health and the probability that he could die before we reach our golden years, but it’s a reminder of how precious time and life are, and how it’s important to make the most of both.
You can listen to our discussion in the link below or wherever you listen to your podcast. Our handle is Just Us For Y’All.
Once again you will have to put up with my obnoxious laughter, because even though this episode is somewhat heavy, Neil always finds a way to make me laugh, it’s one of the things I love most about him, not that my love has boundaries or reasons, but it’s a trait I find admirable.
I hope you enjoy listening!
Love & life lessons,
