I'm really lost as to what to do.
I don't know if I'm doing the right think posting this ? My wife is 57 and I am 55. We have been together for 15 years, married for 10. My wife is menopausal and has been for over 4 years. I love my wife unconditionally, but our situation is tearing me apart. I am not able to find support groups for the partners who are menopausal, only the direct sufferers themselves. To be frank I am at my wits end. Theres no getting away from the fact that our sex life has suffered, and its taking its toll on me. (I feel selfish writing it). Aspects of some of my wifes demeanour with me changes without rhyme or reason. We have talked and her reasoning toward anything we discuss changes each time, making me feel shes making up excuses. We have talked together about all help available to her and she is adamant that she will not seek medication because of the side effects. These last 4 years are taking there toll on me. I don't seek or want any sympathy, I want to know what I can do for my wife and our relationship, because I can't see an end in sight. I have tried everything I can think off, I accept there is no quick fix and I don't expect to eradicate all aspects of the menopause, just help her through it whilst still having some happiness with her. She is a hard working loving caring wife/mother and grandmother. She has time for everyone and everything except me. Honestly, I feel alone and sad, but I try to hide it as to not make her feel guilty. Somebody please help, i am desperate.
