This also goes back to the drinking post, and that is why I hesitate to even post to anything the OP submits...but she asked.

Look up the word ENABLER.

From where I sit, I see the OP as trying to be helpful and supportive of her husband, but I have to wonder at some point the "caregiver" is going to reach the breaking point with all of the "issues" he has.

He is too stubborn to follow doctors and advisors instructions to stop drinking and stop eating poorly.

He is destined to fail on both fronts and the OP will only be dragged down with him.
