Health problems caused sex phobia!


I wonder if anyone has come up against this sort of situation.

We have been married for 35 years and have had many problems, bereavements depressions, physical problems and emotional. My husband has never been emotionally supportive, much sorrow has been my experience and our marriage for many years was held together by a reasonable sex Life.

But now,my husband has developed several health problems,none of them too bad, one is an ongoing productive cough, you know spitting up all the time, it disgusts me, and because of this he has bad breath, Also he has urinary tract issues which are treated by a medication which causes erectile disfunction, I've taken advice and tried to carry on having a "physical" relationship, but to be honest it's turned me off more each time we tried to the point where I just can't face it. I really can't!! What should I do??

I feel so cheated out of what I would like to have, and feel like people think we have this perfect relationship, but don't. I Have no one to speak to about this. My husband is in denial about it. And doesn't seem to realise how much it hurts me.
