My husband has been a sufferer for a long time. I've seen him reach his breaking point and also try anything to stop the pain. It is very hard for supporters to understand the intensity and desperation you reach, and I'm sorry your wife didn't hang in there with you.
There are some "natural" treatments you can try, if you don't have a medical plan. We have found that the "water treatment" when done properly works wonders (read the water x 3 button at the left), as does oxygen (we use welders oxygen), ice and dramamine/gravol to help you sleep.
Please know that you are not alone and not ALL supporters feel the way your wife did.
Please feel free to email me anytime if you need a shoulder.
