I have been married to an avid nature man for 32 years. He is 54 and was an avid hunter, trapper, fisherman. His illness has taken him to a disabled man on 02. Never goes outside - to cold - now. Pride was a quality he was known for. Did everything himself. Now he sits in his chair and controls the remote. We watch what he watches. Our friends don't come around like they use to. The illness is known as IPF - Idiopathis Pulmonary Fibrosis. I work outside the home and try to keep home up. I deal with temper, mood swings. Then there is times when he pouts like a child. So hard to deal with this anymore. I mentioned counseling and he says no way-what for? Says it is me making a big deal out of things. I know I deal with some depression and so far I been having in control. I belong to another support group also. Any one out there with and similarities? Like to hear about it.

I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
