My husband and I have only been together a little over 3 years now. We have two childern together, a 2 year old, and a 7 month old. Now here is where things get complicated. When I met him he had some medical issues, he said it was cancer, he did have a partial esophegeal relacement and twonissen fundoplication surgeries, one of them I was there for. Anyway the past year I feel like he has become a different person. He was alwyas so self sacrificing, would do anything for me and our oldest child. However, after loosing his recent job some scary facts have come to light.
First I caught on to some significant inconsistencies in his stories about his past that he has told me. Both his mother and aunt confirmed that most of the things he told me were lies. For example, he said he was in the Marines but his mom said that never happened. Also he told me about a girlfriend that died when he was younger, and his mom said she was alive and they never even dated.
Then more recently my daughter was diagnosed with a medication resistant form of epilepsy and I realized that my husband has been the only person to ever witness one of her seizures…even though I was her primary caretaker for the past 13 months.
And all of a sudden my husband's condition worsened just as I was returning to work full-time. He was vomiting blood and spending days in and out of hospitals but I never had the opportunity to speak with any of his doctors.
So, I know this is wrong, but when he got back home after spending over a week in two different hospitals I looked through his backpack that he took with him…and I found several syringes and vials of blood! I even took photos to prove that I saw what I did.
Now I ask, what do I do? I knew he liked to exaggerate things but this is scarier than I ever imagined. I want to help him, and I still love him dearly, but I am worried. Especially since he is now the stay-at-home dad.
