I'm wondering if anyone can give me an independent view of what's happening in my life.
20 years ago I met my current partner whilst I was still caring for my late husband who had HD. He helped me through some very difficult times. We eventually started living together (and still do). We have a son who is now 14.
My son from my marriage - now 26 - was diagnosed with HD 4 years ago. My partner and I had drifted apart, probably due to the stress and enormity of HD and we have both been made redundant. My partner has recently found a 'friend' who he was spending may hours with - she has problems and he is/was trying to help her. I have confronted him with what I know, and he stressed that there has been 'nothing going on' between them. Basically, he's told me that he will be there for me to support me through my son's illness. I have found letters he has sent her which give councelling guidence which contain a few endearments.
The last one however said that he felt that he and she had a very close emotional bond, but could not meet for any more than dog walks - he said that it may be years until they are together. I have read this as he is waiting for my son to die. I am in pieces. What do I do?
