Madness

My husband have diabetes II for more than 25 years. We raised our sons on the diet as I was to lazy to cook 2 meals per night. I never baked cakes or made anything that was not suitable for him te share. I took the sons to parties and sometimes out to get that.
My husband started to buy chips and fastfoods behind my back and stay fat. He swears at me and call me names. Sometimes he say things like I will cut throughts and I become afraid of him. He do not assault us fisically but say realy hurtfull things when he ate wrong.
I understand that his grandfather was declared a lunatic. He was diabetic as well as my husbands father.  
What can I do as he refuse to take injections for the high sugar levels. He only use the pills Diamacron and Glucuphage. Raadop.

Family counseling? He has to be willing to take care of himself first before others can help him. As the saying goes, "You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make it drink the water." I wish I had a better answer for you but my capabilities lays with diabetes, not mental health.
