So now we have a new argument. The past 2 days I have come home from work and have (like always) did the run down -- did you take your meds, is there anything you need, how do you feel, how many cans of jevity did you in take.
Well the past 2 days he has only had 4 cans of Jevity. He is suppose to have 8 usually he gets in at least 6. When I told him on Wed he has to get in more he rolled his eyes at me. Yesterday he responded with "So are we going to go through this every day? Do YOU eat when you're not hungry?" So I just told him I was not the one who needed to put on weight and get my strength up.
I agree with others that it is probably a state of depression but how do you get someone to acknowledge that? Obviously I can't tell the doctors to put him on antidepressants without his knowledge and when I mention it to him he denies it.
I think not getting in enough nutrition is a sign of giving up as we know the calories are what he needs most - the strength to fight
