Mike, Ronda’s husband, says he has managed to cope and "get by," but living with Ronda's secret is physically and emotionally exhausting. "I am so tired," he says. "I'm just drained. I cook, I clean, and when the kids get sick, I'm the doctor. I come home and I'm frantically cleaning up the sink and putting dishes in the dishwasher and wiping down the counters so when she does get home, she doesn't go ballistic."
Mike also says Ronda's aversion to being touched is killing their intimacy. "It's been over three months [since we had sex]. ... There's so much that I feel like I'm missing out on with her."
