Living with husband with chronic coronary heart disease.

By October 11, 2016 - 11:29am

I'm new to the group. Just stumbled on this website searching for support. My husband has had 3 heart attacks in the last few years and has coronary heart disease along with other illnesses. He must take 10 medications which cause many side effects and he often experiences chest pain and is in and out of the hospital. I just lost my baby sister after a long battle with cancer and I take care of an 86 year old mother traveling back and forth to NJ from Florida. Living with a chronically ill husband is very challenging and sometimes I feel grief and sadness, anger but grateful I'm healthy enough to help. I guess it's part of care giving, feeling depleted at times. I am at peace when I accept this is all part of God's plan. Well, that's it in a nutshell but I become emotionally exhausted. I know acceptance is the answer to everything. How do others deal with spouses who suffer from chronic diseases?
