You need some relief from your Husband. Can anyone (family)
Stand in for you to get away from him a few days a week. Or maybe a daycare relief for Alzheimer patients? Just a suggestion. Take care of yourself, no one can replace you. So, where would he go if you could not take care of Him?
Hope your situation gets better soon. Hugs
