My fiance' has an incurable disease. Stress is very hard on him. Because of this, many rules of being in a relationship are different for us. Under normal circumstances we would no doubt have many disagreements as we learn to live with one another and adjust to our very different personalities. We do not have the luxury of normalcy. I love him deeply. He's a man of strong character and values. I respect him. I want to protect him from unnecessary drama. Therefore , I make the conscious and frequent desicion to "suck it up" a lot more than I would otherwise. That doesn't mean that I never voice how I feel, I just feel guilty when I do sometimes. By the way, he loves me as much as I do him.
If you've been in a similar situation or are familiar with this type of relationship, how would you suggest I cope? Please remember this is a highly sensitive and difficult situation for me and I would appreciate only thoughtful, considerate , and positive comments. Thank you.

Try a support group...chances are there is one out there for friends and family members of people with whatever he has. it may help to get some insight from people who deal with the same things you do. Maybe even individual counseling for you to get your feelings out to someone.
