I have fibromyalgia too, but my husband understands and does a lot for me. I consider myself very fortunate.
I guess it is best if you just do what you can and don't worry about
it. I do think since he isn't working that he should help you. But that is just my opinion. If he was working out of the house it would be another story.
I know it is hard when somebody doesn't understand what we are going through. But I only rely on myself. If I ask him to do something he generally does, though it might not be in my time frame. But it usually gets done. I try to do as much as I can though because I don't like that feeling of not being able to do something that I normally could do. But I have to pace myself.
Keep coming here for support. Know that I do understand your pain that you have to face on a daily basis. But I think venting does help a lot. And we are always here to offer our support with your depression. This is a really hard time of the year. I take a lot more vitamin D3 than I do in the summer. It helps with the depression and the fibromyalgia as well.
Try not to get mad at your husband. He probably feels bad because he isn't working. Maybe you could write out a schedule of chores for the both of you and maybe he will help you out. Just don't do it when you are upset.
