Sometimes friends don't know what to say and I consider them fair weather friends. I suggest you find comfort in support groups....people that can better relate to your situation.

I'm sooo sorry to hear about your troubles and hope it gets better for you. Friends are sometimes fair weather and unable to be around when something bad happens they are uncomfortable and not sure what to say so they stay away.

I feel for you and for your husband. You have had very good responses as the one of Sillysaddy. I think that in this case, you need very special friends who can be found in support groups. Noone can understand and help you better than someone who lives or have lived a situation like yours. You need special support, which common people/friends are not trainned to offer.
Take it, like this: If you need a surgery, a common friend can´t perform it for you. You need people trained to do that. Lift your spirit!.... You are going thtough a lot, so don´t take also the burden of how your friend react. In very though situations, we are the ones who need to save ourselves. I´m sure you can!
