Hi Pam, thanks for reading my journal and for your comments. I totally understand how your husband feels, and even how you feel. I know how hard it is to take care of a sick person. I took care of my mother for 10 yrs. She had Alzheimer's Disease. She couldn't do anything. I loved her and did my best until I had to put her in a nursing home, but I remember feeling resentful at times and sad like my life was taken over by caring for her. I'm sure you feel that way with your husband. And I know my husband has to do a lot because of my limitations. As far as being nice to him, I am, actually, very nice. Just remember--no one likes being sick or feeling like a burden. It is just easier for us to stay home and accept it, and much less painful. I know I feel that way a lot. Cindy
