Liver disease not caused by drinking

Last week I finally went to Dr. , not much can be done, no cure. I enjoy being active, in fact while feeling very ill my husband makes me do laundry. Get my prescriptions . He's abusive & controlling. My Liver Function Test as this ER Dr. Who doesn't know my history told him I'm fine. I also go to a Transplant Center for care when it flares up. They said with Auto Imunne Hepatitis, LFP tests aren't always the answer, should have did Cat Scan. Aside from this my husband calling me a liar, faking, take oxygen off. He insists I do his laundry for items just puschsed. It doesn't matter he won't let me rest, screams, bought food for himself & not much for myself . I'm told to go get my own food. Been married 44 years and I feel quilty for not feeling well. My belly is swollen, just got back from picking up nausea meds. He again said I'm faking because of test results. He said he wasn't listening to the Transplant Dr. My problem is I don't believe myself now.

Hello Anon

Thank you for writing.

I'm a bit wordless on your husband's reaction to your serious illness.

Firstly, stop doing his chores - his laundry and meal prep - stop doing everything. You are under no obligation to take care of him, certainly if he is able-bodied.

If he is unwilling to change, you need to consider a separation. Ask for help - as much help as you can get - from family and friends. You may be surprised at the compassion offered. Please don't feel scared to ask. Your husband's abuse is not only bad for your physical health but also your emotional health which is very important, especially when ill. Your husband's abuse is now causing you emotional ill-health. You are second-guessing yourself and have completely unwarranted guilt.

Please focus on you and you alone and consider moving to a healthier environment. Your husband's cruelty is simply unacceptable. Seek financial assistance via disability ((your doctor can help with this).
