      You are lucky to have family and it is good that they support you!
      Roses are red. Tacos are enjoyable. Don't blame immigrants, because you're unemployable.

          My husband was just like you and now he relies on me and our two daughters, its a return favor that we wouldn't have any other way.

            MSWife speaks for me too. (she often does, it is nearly eerie)
            My husband and I have a son and a daughter that are grown.

                You are lucky person and it is result of what you did for your wife and kids. There are lots people in this world don't understand when they don't need family support that they will not be in same situation all the time, "today let me help family so they will help me if i needed in future". God is watching everyone and gives return what you gave it to others in your past.

                    My husband is the same. He is a C/6 as well (Dec 7 2008). He was a very strong man... a drywall taper... and made a six figure income pre-injury. We also have 2 boys too.

                    I really try and focus on him being as helpful as he can. I gave him our credit card information next to his computer so he can shop online for us. I also purchased Auto CAD which is a computer aided drafting software so he can design blueprints. I feel it's something he can still do that has a connection to his former line of work.

                    We have come a long way together. Just stay positive and remember to count your blessings when things look grim. Some people are injured before they have the chance to start a family... and I am determined not to take my family for granted. I love my husband with all my heart.

                    One more thing. It takes two to make it work. I always get comments that I am such a strong woman for staying with him. It really bothers me to hear that (although I know some people mean well). If he wasn't so outgoing and laid back we would not have survived this injury. It's not all me... it's us. Keep getting out and doing things... and who cares what people think. That is the key in my opinion.

                      Snowqueeneh, you post made me laugh, I mean about the credit card, I would never give David our credit card before he got MS and wouldn't trust him now either. He was never good about setting limits or writing balances down. I mean if there is anything good about MS its at least I can balance the checkbook now.
