I am 21 years old and living with my fiance who is 28. He has severe health problems and cannot work. I can't help but feel frustrated and angry at him all the time because it feels like he can't do anything to make life easier. He whimpers and moans all the time and it is getting on my nerves. I have been home recovering from a car accident, and he is not doing anything around the house. I just need someone to talk to about him. He complains that his chores (taking out the trash and dishes) are killing him. He goes to the chiropractor and takes heavy painkillers everyday. I am afraid for his health, it seems like he isn't getting any better. I feel bad getting angry with him because he isn't healthy like me, but I can't help it. Am I going crazy? Is this normal? I can't help but think, if this man can barely get out of bed and wash dishes, how are we going to have a family? He keeps saying that he is going to go to school and get a job when he is better, but when will that be? I can't afford to float the whole household by myself forever. I don't want a forum to complain all the time, but I need someplace where I can vent and receive feedback about my situation. I am living 3000 miles away from all my family and friends and I have nobody to talk to. Any takers?
