Hello, I'm the husband of a wife with MS. When my wife couldn't "feel" anything below we stopped having sex. In fact, we have grown closer to each other. I still respect my wife and love her as much today as when we met. We do enjoy just laying with each other, cuddling, and enjoying having each other near. To me, there are other things more important then sex. Sue's health is way more important then "feeling good" as a way to put that taboo. Sue and I have been married 29 years and we have a good life together. I have no urge to go any where else for sex. That being said, I respect Sue for who she is and what she is today. Sue is the mother of our children (29 & 25) and the kids know of her MS. When ever Sue has a "Flare" I am there for her and I hope I always will be there. We married for "better or worse" and I take my vows seriously. Sue stuck by me when I was the victim of a drunk driver. So I can at least do the same with Sue. I guess I should tell y'all before I started typing. Before Sue was diagnosed with MS, I was hit by the drunk driver, 17 years earlier. After a year in the hospital I was allowed to go home.
As for "This is Bob", (as a man) I hate that commercial and all the other ones dealing about the subject. I have no need to better myself in that department. God made us perfect, in His image, why mess with that? I guess I've gone on long enough. BobView Thread
