When I come out with (yet another) symptom he believes me.
When I am crying and telling him I feel useless he comforts me.
When I can't do anything because I haven't slept or my bones and head ache he takes over.
He listens, and as much as he can, he understands.
Shame he won't get to see this as it's the nicest thing I've said about him in 20 years...  ;D

He loves and cares for me more then I do for myself. He believes in me and helps me blow my nose when I can't because I cry so badly.  ;D

Believed me and tried to understand. Taken over when I can't cope and given me permission to not do stuff or have time to myself when I'm overwhelmed. Sounds strange I know, he's not controlling or anything but sometimes I need someone to step in and actually tell me. Showing me that he loves and cares for me as much as I do for him; we have a future together despite everything and me being 'funny in the head' at the moment.

My hubby doesn't really understand this whole menopause  stuff !! he's got problems of his own regarding mental health & nerve pain, so I don't really say  a lot to him. He knows I've got hot flushes, but anything else I don't think he gets !!! ::) We've been together since we were 15 & are in our 36th year of wedded bliss, so now, we've both got various health problems to deal with.  :D

  • changes can be scary, even when we want them

What support does DH get for his mental health issues?  MIND are very good.

There is a list to print out for husbands on the Forum somewhere ......... gives them a little idea ;-)

Print off the Advice for Husbands post, it's pinned in one of the forums. I did that and gave it to OH and DD to read. It gives them an understanding of what you're going through and why you might not be your normal cheerful self.
