Hi! I'm looking for some support and hope I've come to the right place. Wasn't really sure where to post this. Anyway, I'm in my late 30s and have had debilitating Fibromyalgia for nearly 13 years. I've been suffering from extreme MCS (Multiple Chemical Sensitivity) for about 5 years now. The bottom line is this: I want to leave my marriage, but feel completely trapped due to not being able to work and needing help because of my overwhelmingly serious health problems. My husband and I have been together for 10 years (no children) and it's a very unworkable relationship. We argue constantly. Of course this is a source of extreme stress and is terrible for my mental and physical health. He's not physically abusive, doesn't drink or do drugs, doesn't have any addictions whatsoever, is faithful to me, and deep down I think he's a decent person. However, he's exceedingly immature (despite being more than ten years older than I am!) and incredibly difficult to deal with. Most of the time I feel like I'm his mother instead of his wife. He's beyond sloppy and disorganized (the antithesis of who I am) and it drives me nuts! I'm in so much pain & exhausted, and I have to do everything except for the grocery shopping...all because he won't do a good job (his cleaning is subpar at best) and he refuses to work with me. It's a constant power struggle. I know living with someone who has FM is hard. Really, really hard. I know my MCS makes our lives horribly complicated and difficult. I understand that all of this is an enormous burden and I do my utmost to make as few demands on him as possible. Still, he doesn't have to make my life even worse by turning everything into a fight/debate. He knows how draining this is for me, but won't stop. I don't have any family I can count on nor do I have any close friends. My MCS is so severe that I can not be near any scented products or chemicals. NONE. My husband and I do not use any scented products in our home and we have to use an ozone generator to get rid of any scents, chemicals, etc. that are brought in from other environments. It's a nightmare!!! I feel as though I have no options. Like I'm an animal trapped in a cage. Being in such an unworkable marriage is detrimental to me on so many levels, but I need my husband's help to survive on a daily basis. We've talked about marriage counseling and I'm all for that, but we tried it years ago and my husband lied to the therapist. He admits that he lied before and has said he'll be honest with a new therapist if we go again. I don't believe him and I don't want to waste money we don't have on counseling that will be a waste of time. I don't know what to do anymore. Is there anyone else out there in a similar situation? Thanks for letting me vent and taking the time to read/listen.
