I totally empathize with your situation. My husband of 29 years has been abusive to me most of our married life. He was diagnosed three years ago with ALS and although he is no longer able to physically berate and abuse me, he can still use his mouth. We have gone through 4 caregivers in 8 months because he is so difficult. If I was the one with ALS I dread to think how he would be handling the situation. He certainly would never care for me, that is for sure. I guess what I am saying is, you are not alone. Before I found this forum, I felt afraid and lonely, guilty for feeling resentment and wanting it to be over. You MUST take care of yourself, get rest, eat well. My husband has almost destroyed my health, so I am trying hard to stay healthy and sane. You will get through this, stay well.
