Having spent the last five years caring for a stroke patient, I don't know whether to applaud the guy or question his sanity. It's all very noble and tear-invoking to be totally responsible for a spouse's care, but there comes a point when you realize that you're keeping someone else alive at the expense of destroying your own health. Or else you end up sicker than the person in your care. Martyrdom is so pretty from the outside, though.
