I am married to a really sweet man, but when it comes to me being ill, he's down right mean. First, I have to explain that my husband is a paraplegic due to the removal of a tumor in his spine 8 yrs ago. So, you can see what's wrong with him. All of my illnesses are "invisible" so I think he believes its all in my head. He's angry because I am "lazy" and sleep all the time. He rolls his eyes if I wince or moan in pain. He gives me the silent treatment if I can't get out of bed before noon. He looks at every single plate of food I get with disgust. He keeps asking "when are you going back to work?" Instead of asking "how are you feeling, or can I get you anything?" He turns up the volume on the TV while I'm explaining what the doctors have said. I feel so alone and misunderstood. Is anyone else dealing with an unsupportive spouse?

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