JamieT, I also wanted to add this caveat when we're facing such dreadful situations. Many times, we really overload our bodies by flooding it with many different things that are not only way out of our regular routines, but foreign to us, as well. We do these things with the belief that a barrage of things will wipe things out, immediately. They won't It just stresses the body to the point of breaking.
Any type of parasitic infestation requires time, patience, diligence, and courage. Rest, support, and encouragement are also tremendous factors in how we recover.
I don't know if you have any coping mechanisms or techniques to help you deal with the anxiety, but now is the time to put those into practice, if you do. Also, being assertive about your own needs will go a long, long way. "I need..." is perfectly reasonable to tell someone.
When I thought that I was going to die from the effects of Rhuematoid and Psoriatic Arthritis and the low-dose chemotherapy that is typically used to treat symptoms, I was without help and didn't believe that I deserved any help, either. You absolutely are worthy of having some help through this, and this means having a family member (mom, auntie, some other FEMALE) or friend to come in and help you during the day, and the spouse can take over when he gets home.
