Feeling angry and confused

By November 14, 2014 - 11:31pm

I was so pleased to have come across this site and to read some of the stories! which I can totally relate to and therefore makes me feel like I am not a total,uncaring freak .

I am a 'well spouse' of someone with a chronic illness, and we are a currently Both at a very low point, and seemingly unable to come back from it. I feel continually angry and resentful, and know I am depressed from trying to cope with the the effects of how the illness pervades every aspect of our life while I am also trying to cope with the stress of my own profession that is more. Complex by the day. I truly wish to have better times for both of us, we just seem to be stuck with anger resentment and lack of understating on both sides this would seem to be not uncommon

I'm not married to a man with a chronic illness, but I'm dating one. I'm trying not to be angry at him because he has shut me out and I feel like I'm in limbo. I see responses such as those in this thread and I am reading they respond to you, even in anger. I would be grateful for anger, or any other kind of emotion from him, because I'd know where I am with him to some degree. I am getting nothing but silence and this is becoming hard to deal with and hurtful.

Wow, your situation sounds just like mine....Anger and resentment is an understatement. He calls me selfish and tells me I am always angry and resentful, but I don't know how else to think. His illness has put our relationship in a very hard position financially and emotionally!! Keep me posted on yours....I hear you!!!
