I was wondering if there are others out there who are care-givers, not for a child or for a parent, but for a spouse. My husband became disabled shortly after we married and while I had two babies. We've been married 23 years now, and I've never been involved in any kind of support group. It's tough sometimes to have your spouse, basically be like retired when you are working hard all day, esp. when you come home tired and they've been watching TV, etc. and you have to work more hours cleaning your house, etc. I would like to know how others deal with the frustration and anger that can sometimes come about when you work 10 hours a day, it seems like your spouse could do the housework, but you come home and it looks like about 1/2 hour to 1 hour was spent doing anything like that. :( I don't want to harbor any anger.

I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
