I realise I have to change the setup. I have eased pressure from work already. Also I know another father with a child my sons age who does canoeing and he has hinted I join him. I will and while enjoying myself I spend time with my son and build his upper body. As for my marriage I will move out on a trial separation. The break and peace for a few months might do me well. I will than re-evaluate everything. In the meantime I have to do more exercise to get my mind sorted out.
This is all in line with the good advise you and others have previously given - I just have to do it and get on with life.
After the accident I was glad to have at least one child left even if he was cripple

Hello again, hubbie,
hey, only a couple of hours between the messgaes, and you've mde progress already ! Easing the work pressure --- good, and extend this. Sounds like a good plan for you and your son, potentially. I notice that you refer to him as a cripple, a term not much used these days, and wonder whether his degree of physical imperfection angers you somehow ? One can alternatively concentrate on appreciating all of him, and his other abilities. Surely he is still a remarkable lad, and still capable of much ? And a trial separation may be a sensible trial run, to see how each of you can manage in a separated relationship. he extra exercise will probably also help to reduc the sense of anger and frustration, in addition to its other more obvious benefits.
