Absolutely!!! In the last year I left my husband, had to leave my children with him because I had nowhere to go (I see them nearly every single weekend but I was a stay at home mom, it's horrible), had no car, no job, no money, had to go to a battered woman's shelter. Borrowed a truck from my ex that broke down within a week, got screwed over by my only sibling, moved three times, lost two jobs, lost my driver's license, my daughter came to live with me and then moved back with her father because I couldn't drive her to the school she wanted to go to, I'm out of work, my boyfriends car broke down, I have $100's in fines to pay because I had no car insurance (couldn't afford it), I've been fighting my ex this entire time (he has some addiction problems I had to call CPS on him a couple months ago), I'm stuck out in the country so never get to go anywhere during the week, I had the Mirena birth control put in and the doctor cut my uterus so I was in excruciating pain for a couple of weeks, my ex refuses to pay for an attorney to get a divorce and lawyers won't help me because there was no recent physical abuse so I'm still married to him a year later and nothing in the works yet, and I found out two days ago that my ex has another girl pregnant. He's 35, she's 24. And I know there have been other ridiculous things that have happened in the last year but these are the things that were on the top of my head.
I'm very sorry to hear that your husband is sick. I wish your family all the best.
