Hi gofigure...

Ohh how I agree with some of the previous posters..it's very easy to criticize u-n-t-i-l said criticiser is walking in your shoes..you can tell people what it is/was like to be a 24/7 caregiver but they just will not understand if they themselves haven't been there..the worry and stress alone is enough to deplete us of most of our energy and sometimes for weeks on ends only very top priority things get done..all else gets put to the side..
I never had quite the problem you are having but I do remember while caregiving for my mother a home health aide that my dad had..calling me and giving me a rather stern lecture that his suite was a mess..I tiredly informed her that I couldn't get over there to clean for him as I was a 24/7 caregiver and had only one nursing respite per week for 3 hours..she was kind enough to tell me I should then be using my 3 hours to get over there and do housecleaning shopping etcetc for my father..lol..guess some people figure we are machines..
Anyways I do hope you get over your hurt..save your energy for your husband..
take care
