I'm a disabled dad, my wife resents me and we no longer love each other

I’m 41 and my wife is 35. I’ve been disabled for nearly ten years. I don’t love my wife any more and she doesn’t love me. She asks me to do things she knows I can’t do.

When I explain that some jobs are just too painful, she sulks.

I can feel her resentment and I think I’d do better alone.

DEIDRE SAYS: I’m sorry – that sounds very difficult for both of you.

Living with a disability is tough on the carer as well as the person with the challenges. It must be hard for your sons living with this resentment at home.

Before planning to leave, explore the available support. Scope assists disabled people and their families (scope.org.uk).

Your wife can find some support and advice through Carers UK (carersuk.org, 0808 808 7777).
