A Long Introduction

This is the very first forum that I have ever been a member of. :newbie I don't have a Facebook or Twitter account, so........I'm a little nervous. This will probably be a long introduction because my life has always been complicated. I just can't seem to fit it into a category with a cute title! :lol:

Married for 21 years. My husband is visually impaired and his eye sight is continuing to dwindle.
After 8 years of infertility, we decided to adopted. We now have three sons. Our oldest is Intellectually and Developmentally Disabled or IDD (if you feel like throwing letters together). I really have my hands full! Sometimes, overwhelmingly so.

In fact, I wrote the above paragraphs about 1 to 2 weeks ago and saved it as a draft. I'm finally getting back to write and send this introduction!

I'm learning a lot from this form and website. While I'm the HD spouse, I was on medication for about 10 years that took my libido away. Combine that with a LD spouse and you can pretty well guess that nothing was happening in the MB. I changed medication and my drive came back. Now my DH and I are trying to figure out how to work through all the emotions and rejections of that time. We are definitely on the right track.

I really like getting to read all the posts and seeing how God is working in other people's lives. It also gives me inspiration and practical suggestion that have been helpful. Thanks for allowing me to join in this forum.

I agree, RH. From what I have read so far, there is a lot of wisdom from which to learn. I especially appreciate the commonality of the Bible being our source of wisdom.

Welcome. We had a lady here several years ago whose husband was losing his sight. Don't know if she's still around.

Thanks, Job. I would love for anyone with a spouse who is blind/visually impaired to introduce themselves to me. It would be great to compare notes and ask questions. However, I'm sure I'm going to learn a lot in this forum even if no one else is in the "same situation" as I am. :D
