4 years ago my husband of 20 years was out getting high with the chick from the bar that he was having an affair with, when he nodded off at the wheel and crashed his truck, instantly paralyzed and instantly insane. He has spent the last four years partying and drinking playing pool and fishing, sitting in his chair all along until he ended up in a convelescent hospital in phoenix. A dirty nasty place like you see in the movies. He has stage 4+ sores and just beat a bout of bone infection and mrsa. He also had a blood infection. Today he has c-dif which his common in nasty places, it is contagious diarrea. I believe he wants to die. I have stood by him regardless of his indisgressions although we never lived together again. We have 3 kids who were 11,17 and 18 when this all happen. 2 years ago I had to divorce him for fear my children would suffer even more. Does anyone have any advice regarding how he must be feeling? I myself do not know what its like to be paralyzed, and he does not communicate well at all. I love him.
