Our expert says:
El-JO, anyone's difficult behaviour can badly effect us, but most especially so in a situation like yours, where you have someone you love and are caring for, who is being irrationally bpeculiar due to his illness, so you can be infuriated and hurt, but feel unable to fully blame him because it is indeed usually the disease and its effects talking. This is one reason why hospice and CNSA assistance includes provision for "respite care", where someone else takes over your caring duties for a couple of days so you can have a rest and just care for yourself, before resuming your task.
You and he are NOT beyond help, but you seem hesitant to strongly seek out and call for the help you need and deserve. The duration of an illness like his is very hard to guess. Again, a hospice nurse may, from her experience, be able to make a better estimate.
