I don't know what to do short of giving up on my own life.
My husband has been battling with type 2 diabetes for about 4 years using oral medications, diet and exercise. Just two months ago, while his weight was the lowest it had ever been, his blood sugars and A1c were sky high. He was immediately hospitalized and put on insulin.
He had become very depressed and afraid for his life.
He decided his was going to make a life change while he is still alive.
He has a good job, which he has been out on sick leave since the hospitalization, that he no longer wants to go back to. He wants to start and edible forest garden, thinking he will overturn his illness and won't need medications at all. To do this, he will leave his job and move (us) to another state where his immediate family is.
I have tried and tried to understand and to agree with his decisions but I don't, I feel that he has been given a second chance at life and he should treasure it, but the move is definitely not something I can do. At least not there because he wants to move in with his family.
I have tried to interact with the family to make this transition easier on everyone, but it is snowballing out of control and blowing up in my face. We just are too different and can't seem to get along.
I am at the point where I am going to give up and tell him to go without me. I love him but I am going to lose him..Do you think that this change in personality and all the lifestyle changes he wants to make are part of his illness? If so, what can I do? I am going insane..
