I'm about to give up all hope. I've been very sick for 2 years with Lupus. My husband is not understanding at all. I can't go to the doctor as I'd like to. My husband threatens to cancel my insurance almost daily. I have 2 daughters grown and married. They have no idea what I go through and I can't bear the thought of them knowing. My husband withholds food and medical care from me. I haven't eaten in days and my last prescriptions are sitting on the dresser unfilled. He doesn't allow me any money. I don't drive and am stuck in the house. I have constant pain and am very afraid. He has stopped buying any groceries and he brings his food in from places. I don't want people to know that another human being can be so cruel. I've been praying but I'm getting so tired of trying. He thinks i'm lazy and it hurts so much to hear those cruel words. I do try everyday to function, but its not getting any better.
