5. My BNL is dying from Agent Orange and is well cared for, after years of being supported by his wife,

He finally got the full disability coverage from his injuries in Vietnam which had put him off of work for twenty years while my sister worked to support him. They always took care of his medical needs since Vietnam, but didn't send him a check until a few years back with full documentation. The veterans groups in his area worked to get him all he needed. Their home mortgage was covered by benefits as a service member, too.

He now gets a monthly check for 100% service related disability, full prescription coverage, case management, home nursing care, hospitalization and his home was refitted as well as a van to carry him around in. My sister is nearing retirement and relieved, since her private insurance was truly deadly to her health and she expects to be covered as his spouse.

Your husband is lucky to have you taking care of him in his time of need, even though your profile says Life is Hell. Take care of yourself and your beloved spouse and I hope things will get better for you.
