I was in a long term relationship for 7 years and planned on getting married. When I had a stroke the person that I had known was gone by the time I got out of the hospital. It was a very sudden end. It added even more stress when I finally did come home after more than a month in the hospital. You never really know how the most important people in your life will react. I also became apraxic after my stroke which made it difficult to even try to contact or discuss things with her. I live alone so the boredom and loneliness can become difficult.
So you are not alone with dealing with this kind of problem.
