On this episode of Intimate Realness with Meka Rae and Renair we are discussing "Illness in Relationships."
There is a level of grief that the "healthy" partner may experience because of the loss of "activity" that may result if their partner is experiencing an illness (physical or mental) and this can be a breeding place for resentment or disconnection. How do you maintain a sense of self while understanding your partner's current situation? How do you maintain a healthy relationship when your partner is suffering from a certain illness? Do you leave because they are sick? Do you stay and become the "care taker?" Do your responsibilities change? If so, in what way and how may you adjust?
We are going to discuss self-care, boundaries, love, and attitude during this show.
