My husband had been very ill for over 10 years with Autonomic neuropathy. We were told often that he could linger for years or would die in 6 months, 2 weeks, and every other time imaginable. He always got a little bit better but declined very slowly. It shouldn’t be a shock but it is. I just can’t believe he really did die this time. He also kept going though bedridden and in pain the last 1 1/2 years. I took care of him at home with absolutely no help from family. A couple of friends would occasionally bring groceries and pick up his medication when I couldn’t safely leave him alone. I’m so tired and can’t sleep.
