My Latest Story: New Kidney and a New Mistress
While Debbie Patterson's husband was unconscious after a kidney transplant she discovered he was in love with another woman. Debbie found it cathartic to share her story and, with the support of family and friends, she's getting through the most difficult time of her life.
It's no surprise that dealing with serious illness can make us face our own mortality and rock the foundations of even the strongest relationship. Debbie's husband, Mike, wasn't able to shed much light on his behaviour but says he didn't plan to get better and bugger off!
It's such a tragedy for Debbie because after supporting her husband through three years of ill-health & dialysis, she was excited about their future together. Now, unsurprisingly, she plans to divorce him.
Relate can help you even if you are not currently in a relationship and need support to deal with a major relationship crisis.
