I need help!
My husband has been so wonderful through all this. It has been 9 weeks since my surgery and he has done everything from cleaning, cooking, shopping, yard work, taking care of our daughter.
This week though, he seems to be irritable and seems to be avoiding me. This has been very hard on him. When you have a surgery like this (fusion in lower lumbar)you need someone to take care of things and help you out. But who thinks of the people that are helping you? I have been back at work and so when I get home I am worn out and can't do much. I have been helping as much as I can with the chores around the house but there is only so much that you can do when you can't bend, lift anything, or twist. My husband has been having to handle a lot these past few months. I am afraid that he is starting to resent me. He has that worn out look in his eyes now and seems to get irritated now when I flinch from pain while walking. He deserves a much needed break but will not allow anyone to help.
I don't want him to start hating me so any advice will help.
