Not many of you know me, I was recently diagnosed with severe copd. I have a lot of problems at the moment. I am married to a man who I have stuck to despite having affairs and voilence in our early years of marriage. We had three children who I did not want to let down and stayed with him. He mellowed over the years and the voilence stopped and I reared my three children. He has retired and we run an alpaca farm together, which is hard work. Last year my brother arrived here as his relationship with his partner collapsed, unfortunately he is a severe alcoholic and has caused a lot of problems. The other problem is he cannot tell the truth and despite all our help he is drinking more and more, As you can imagine this is causing a lot of friction between us. My husband has told him to leave at the end of the month. I am torn between the two of them and this is making me quite ill. My husband does not understand or is willing to understand my health issues and expects me to fully recover now I have stopped smokiing. I am so stressed this morning I had a cigarette and he just said' its your life do what you want'. I feel so alone and need some friends. Viv xxx
