Your Disablity is My Disablity
I stopped going places I stopped doing things. I closed myself up in the house with him. Just me and him, 24 hours a day. We wouldn't visit my family in the next state over, we wouldn't visit his family. The only time I'd get out is when his parents came to take us, because they wouldn't take no for an answer, at that time anyway. I'd say it was only since his disability, however, it has been ongoing before that, it has simply amplified since he became disabled.
Em realized what was happening and she took the steps she needed to take in order to join the world again!
I went to school, and then I got a job. A life outside the husband and family. Co-workers, friends and so on. After two years of working and with much encouragement especially from my husband, I got my drivers license. It has opened up a whole new world for me. I can go where ever I want, whenever I want. I go to family Christmas parties if I want and now it's up to him if he wants to come or not.
