Welcome to the forum. I'm so sorry your hubby doesn't get it. It's frustrating beyond belief isn't it. When I talked to my hubby about my pain issues, I tried to give him an example of pain that he's had. So for instance, he gets "charlie horse" cramps in his calf muscles at night fairly often. We all know how excrutiating that is! So I told him, "Okay. Now imagine having that charlie-horse all day, every day, none stop. How would you feel? Hopeless? Exhausted? Anxious? Depressed? Crazy?" He just looked at me and nodded. He got it. Instantly. I've never had to explain myself since. Now he's overprotective of me :)
I have found that explaining it that way to anyone, really works.
I can do anything through Jesus Christ who strengthens me. I have learned in whatever state I am in,to be content. Phillipians 4:11-13
