I think this web site is sooo great!! My husband on the other hand not so much. He is a parky and does not want to read or visit with other parkies. He says it gets him more depressed. I read some of your questions and answers and I can see it HELPS him!!! He says things like.... they feel like I do, and wow, I feel for them that sounds worse than what I am going through.
I really think it would do him good to talk to others going through the same thing!! He talks to his friends about it all the time. I see he has lost a couple of friends due to them being uncomfortable and not knowing what to say. If they do try to give advise, he is one who always has something to say as to why it won't work or help.
He is also a thinker and figures out things very well on his own. he has always had to rely on himself. That habit is hard to break. Life was very hard for him before we married. He was 25. He is now 62.I thought being together so long and having a life long partner to help him would change him but it hasn't. He knows he has this issue to work through but ......
Anyway, I would like your opinions. Should I push my idea about support groups or not?
Thank you!! Mary
