    I can sympathise with you. I care for my disabled daughter now 25 and hubby is not much support at all, but I could 'handle' that. Now though I have been dx with a chronic illness and hubby is having a hard time - he won't even discuss it with me, as for the 'understanding/help' - well I'd like some advice too.
    Sorry I haven't got some advice for you, but just to let you know you are not alone - not that it's much comfort to you :(
    Take Care

    If you go to the CFS/FM board, click on the first post, Pro Health offers free brochures for those with CFS/FM.

    You can order as many as 99 at one time. They explain the symptoms and both illnessess in a brief way. The postage is also free.

    I give them to everyone I know, and my son and daughter hand them out at their jobs, and also my son's University.

    It is some help for us to be understood.

    Will say a prayer for all of you.

    Shalom, Shirl
