I know exactly how you feel, as does everyone in my support group. I think there is a big difference in being a caregiver and a Spouse that is a caregiver. The entire relationshp changes. You are Married yet you are a Widdow even before he passes. Your grieving process starts much sooner than others and continues.
If you can care for him by yourself you do the best you can and when you can not care for him alone you either have someone come in that can help you or you MUST place him in a facility where he can get the care he needs and deserves. When that day comes you can still care for him, love him and be there for him it will just be someone else doing some of the work.
You are doing a wonderful job, a though job. but you have to also take care of you.
