Same here. It sometimes doesn't take much. I think you can only internalize so much until your brain starts screaming for a relief valve. Tminor5, you are likely spot-on with your comment, everything he’s been through then this.
Just when you think he's out of the woods and you can breathe again, this happens. Let the tears fall when you can. It will be cathartic and you need to let off some stress. In my home, I'm the patient and I'm certain that the caregiver (my husband) has the hardest job by far -- so give yourself a break. You can only do so much and it's your life too. You might consider counseling or a support group or a night out with the girls.
