Hi my name is julie but is isnt me who is the sufferer it is my husband who was diagnosed last year but has been suffering since 2009 when he had to come out of work due to the pain. I was working full time until september 2011 when i finished to become his full time carer as he has difficulty walking , getting dressed or having a shower and now he needs help with his toilet needs. He is also very depressed at times and i am now in control of his tablets due to a very low point in which he took a overdose of his morphine . He is tired all the time and feels inadequate as a husband and father , it is hard for me as his wife too as i cant bear to see him like this and all he wants to do is go back to work. Are there any other carers out there who are finding it hard .
