Are you getting any outside help coming in, like carers Burt. You do need to take care of your own health.

He has just been on his bed all day. He won't let me move him. He has not eaten anything for 3 days. He will not cooperate. IDK what to do.

if he isn't eating you need to think about bringing social services in to bathe and feed him
it shouldn't be all on your shoulders xxxx

I would prefer him in a mental health ward, since that is his main problem. IDK what they were going on about his heart last time. the docs were clueless
