About the Author
I'm Brian Zibricky. My wife Sue was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in 2015.
I decided to start Respouseability after looking for a resource for spouses or partners of people with disabilities. There are many websites dedicated to disabilities, but none that encapsulate the experience of being a spouse of someone with a disability. Each day we try to improve the lives of our partners with disabilities. It's heartbreaking. It's exhausting. Our days are filled with challenges, frustrations, and obstacles. But also a lot of laughter and a lot of love. I'm constantly on the lookout for new information to improve the life of my wife and the lives of our children.
The family has the disability and we cope together.
My goal is to create a community of spouses and partners to enable - and more importantly, inspire - one another. There's strength in the collective experiences that we all share. We're in this together.
