My wife just found out she has this. I'm afraid that part of it came from stress igniting the dormant mono strain in her liver from 20 years ago. (She's 40 and we have two kids under 10). Stress not from our relationship; it's been strong always. We've been through some really bad luck and attacks in the ministry and then my job now has me working evenings and she raises the kids, basically as a single mom because of my hours. This is going to be a challenge for her and I feel helpless, also scared, knowing from reading here how it changes personalities to where they don't care. And I know that's not her...she's always been vibrant and a great mother. I'm trying to get back in the ministry just to have a mostly day job and more family time, but that's not working out. What can I do for her, facing this future? What I'm trying to adjust in terms of family life isn't off to a good start. I want to be there for her and the kids.
