I am having one of THOSE DAYS where I can't stop crying due to my seemingly impossible situation! I am a two time cancer survivor who also has ME/CFS and Fibromyalgia. I also have no thyroid gland left due to thyroid cancer, so my body already has an uphill battle. I am a mother of 4, with my youngest being 11 years old and I have a husband who has raging ADD (attention deficit disorder), which is NOT being treated right now because of complications with the last thing we tried. I used to be the one who "held down the fort" before my CFS became much more debilitating a few years ago. Over time, things have become worse and worse as his inability to take charge of the things I can no longer do has caused our home and family life to deteriorate. And as we all know, STRESS brings on severe flares in our condition so it is an impossible situation. He is a passive aggressive personality who seems to not care about anything or anyone anymore. His sleep hasn't been good for a while now because of his responsibilities at work and so that is only exacerbating things and causing me great concern. I try to give him helpful tips for his sleep problems and health, but he won't try or do anything consistently. He has never been a very self-motivated person and its only gotten worse now. He doesn't even try to help himself, and even with my diseases, I continue to seek out solutions and treatments for myself and loved ones. But it is all becoming too much for me to handle... our finances are a shambles because of his neglect, our home is in need of so many repairs that I've lost count! And our yard is in bad need of attention too, but its things my eleven year old can't do and my other children are grown and live far away (with the exception of my third child who is currently home from college but she can't do the type of work that's needed in our yard either). My husband's apathy is causing me and my youngest two children such stress that I can't describe! I hate this for my children! I am a woman of faith, so most of the time I am able to handle this difficult situation through the strength God provides me and I try to pass that along to my children. But right now I feel as though I am in a worse situation than if I were a single mother with this disease because of the stress and strain my husband is causing. We have been married 29 years, but things are becoming too much for me to bare. Does anyone have any advice they can offer? I'm at the end of my rope!
