Not really sure where to start. My father-in-law is dying of Alzheimers. Everyone's "300 lb gorilla in the livingroom" has suddenly become visible. I know that weddings and funerals bring out the best or worst in people but this is ridiculous. On top of all that, my relationship with my husband is crashing against the rocks. I want to go to counseling, he sort of agreed, but there is absolutely no time to schedule it. He works 12 hour shifts and every day off is spent with his father or doing something for his father or mother or son or daughter. We are covered under his insurance but only for 8 visits and it is going to take a bus load. He is fighting with his sister, his daughter, his son, his daughter-in-law and me. I try really hard to not add to the frey and stay in the background but i always manage to open my mouth at the wrong time. He has been through counseling for a work related injury but it didn't help and he is pretty convinced that it won't help now either. I have been to counselors off and on over the years when I have been stuck but never have I been when I am so down and feeling so lost. I would go by myself but I really want him to go with me because his negativity really brings me back down. So....now what?
