if I could, I would post this under a a different username because I'm ashamed I'm being so weak.
Well I'm at my wits end.
My DH and I are both 80 and in good health but he cannot get his head around just how serious this is! He washes his hands, otherwise he's continuing to live just as he always has.
If he wants something he goes to the shops and buys it. If a neighbour invites us into their garden he goes and sits with them while I stand at the gate and tell them they're breaking the rules. They laugh at me, DH included, and try to make me look a fool but I insist on staying away.
He says I'm selfish and lazy for getting groceries delivered and derides me for sanitising door handles and taps after he's touched them.
He also derides me for wearing gloves to collect his washing and for wiping the steering wheel of the car after he's used it, and for sitting at the other end of the room to watch TV.
I am sleeping in the spare room and I fear our 60 year old marriage is about to implode. if I had anywhere to go - I'd go.
What can I do?
(Sods law has it, it'll be me who goes down with it whilst he stays healthy)
