MAJOR UPDATE: Here’s what’s going on with my wife

There’s a part of me that’s still getting used to my wife and I being back together, in regards to my writing anyway. I don’t often include her in my writing because I got so used to avoiding any mentions while we were separated for almost two years. This is a problem, and I mean to address that moving forward.

Lizze plays a vital role in our daily life, and there are things that should be talked about. For the more personal stuff, I will refer you to her blog, www.themamaspace.com. She shares personal insights about herself and her struggle. I’ll be touching on some of the basics, though.

I want to get things started by playing a little bit of catch up.



You may already know that Lizze struggles with both physical and emotional health problems. To help put things into context, here’s a list of some of some challenges she deals with on a daily basis:

Physical Health Challenges

  1. Chronic, daily migraines that don’t respond to medication
  2. Menopause (began at age 32)
  3. Ehlers-Danlos Syndrom
  4. Fibromyalgia
  5. Chronic Fatigue
  6. Gastroparesis
  7. Arthritis
  8. Reflux

Mental Health Challenges

  1. PTSD
  2. ADHD
  3. Generalized Anxiety Disorder
  4. Social Anxiety Disorder
  5. Bipolar II with Borderline tendencies

This is quite a bit, and I know I missed at least something. These range from general annoyances to very serious, in regards to how they impact her life on a daily basis.

A helpful post, and a nice statement about your appreciation for your wife. It does seem that you are often pretty guarded in your posts – there is often a missing piece to the story or something doesn’t quite seem to add up, and for good reason. You’re trying to respect your wife’s privacy yet be open about what’s going on in your life. Not always an easy balance and it shows in a good number of your posts. Most people would presume that when your wife returned to your home, things would naturally get easier for you. I’m sure… Read more »
