Anyone else experience similar chronic illness symptoms?

Note: I am the patient. Describing the symptoms is pretty difficult task but I will try to do my best. The patient has not felt normal since sometime in October of 2013. The best way to describe it is a feeling as if patient is about to get sick. That feeling as if a sickness is coming on but never really comes on. This feeling is often strongest at night and continues throughout the day and will be gone by night. This toxic/sick feeling that radiates throughout the body seems to come and go at times.

Spouse with chronic illness - support for me.

I'm trying to find some kind of online support, such as a forum, for people whose SOs have chronic health problems. When googling for this, all I find are forums for people who are caretakers of their ill SOs. My husband can take care of himself for the most part, but his illness has a significant impact on our marriage. I'm trying to find others in similar situations. Any ideas? Many thanks in advance.
