Supporting chronically ill partner?
YOU’RE IN THE RIGHT PLACE!
If you are married to someone who has a chronic illness, want it or not, you’re a spousal caregiver. But this place isn’t only for married men, any guy will benefit from Worry Head!
Just like you, I was once a partner, a boyfriend, fiance… today I’m a husband. But on every level of my relationship, I had to go through the same struggles as you.
So, married or not, if she has endometriosis or fibromyalgia, Worry Head is going to help you.
I CREATED THIS SITE WITH ONE GOAL IN MIND!
To help men like you find the way of coping with the daily challenges of loving a woman with chronic illness, and the mental impact it has on both of you.
My primary focus is placed on the caregiving men because there are tons of blogs dedicated to sufferers of chronic illness, but the voices of their supporters are often forgotten.
Despite that, a staggering 86% of our readers are young women of reproductive age, between 18 and 44 years old.
They all suffer from endometriosis, often also from fibromyalgia. My wife being the victim of both, immensely contributes to this blog.
Her perspective as the sufferer and her feminine touch are indispensable!
WHY DO SO MANY WOMEN VISIT WORRY HEAD?
They are in need of their partner’s support, who often struggle to cope, and who need guidance from someone experienced, someone who understands what they are going through.
In the same way, we will never fully understand what our women go through, they will never understand how hard it’s for us to balance being caregiver and partner.
What will you find here?
You came to this site to learn and find answers. I’m going to walk you through it in the simplest and most helpful way.
I don’t want you to just cope, I want you to thrive, and despite hardship and doubt, build a life filled with happiness for both of you.
Because above all, you’re a man. A man needs a goal, a purpose in life. Every man’s dream is to own a business. I’ll teach you how to create a blogging biz from scratch!
I wrapped over a decade of personal experience in blog posts that answer questions nobody ever gives answers to.
I have over 100 articles on this site. In order to help you navigate through it easily, I split them into three main sections…
You will find here everything you need to know about endometriosis, from types and stages to diagnosis, treatment, and management.
My wife has one of the most advanced types – stage IV deep infiltrating endometriosis...
You will find here everything you need to know about fibromyalgia, all types of symptoms and pain, plus diagnosis, treatment, management.
My wife developed fibromyalgia the following year after her diagnosis of endometriosis...
The mental health impact of chronic illnesses such as endometriosis and fibromyalgia is rarely spoken of. It affects both partners in the relationship.
Most common are general anxiety, panic attacks, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, depression...
I'm a man on a mission to:
Help the spousal caregiver be heard and understood by their partner, educate them about endometriosis and fibromyalgia, help their emotional and mental struggles, provide them with valuable, fluff-free tips.
Help the suffering partner understand how we feel, so they can help us help them better, which in return puts the end to their feeling of a burden, and helps them contribute to the relationship more than ever.
Your satisfaction drives me!
This is a wonderful man who loves his wife and is doing what most men/loved one's should be doing.
They too suffer from our day to day lives.
I cried in a few places while reading this article to my husband. He too had tears in his eyes and had been my rock so many times. I wish more men were like the author of Worry Head..."
Your post really touched me, thankfully I have an extremely supportive partner, he is just like you, helping me a lot to get over this. Please do rise awareness and thank you for doing this!"
My wife lost her job at the start of the year. Has suffered terribly mentally since and constantly battles with pains everyday. I honestly don't know how she copes. All endo sufferers are absolute warriors.
Thank you. I'm loving your content since I've followed and you inspire me to continue doing what I do!"
