Living with pain, disability and finding peace in knowing I will die within a few years while the ones around me cannot cope

I am 37 years old, married with a husband with a deadly muscular disease, very disabled, laying on a bed all day and in huge amounts of pain, while doctors cannot do anything for me anymore, not even releasing me from a little pain.

Although I feel God is around me all the time, although I am in the lucky position that I know I am surrounded by angels, it is so hard to live like this. I cannot do the basic things of life anymore myself, and all that's left is enjoying my computer. I found peace in the fact that I cannot be or do more than this, for I know God loves me anyway. My husbands understands me, but for my parents and brother it's different. They are trying to take me to another doctor, to fight against it. But I have laid my life into God's hands already and all I want is to spend the short time that I have left in this world, hoping my husband will live until then, in a loving, enjoying way, having fun and living each day fulfilling the dreams I always had, like every day was the last. Please pray for me that I can keep on doing this, that my parents will understand. I keep on telling them God is healing me, on the inside, not on the outside, but it's hard to make them understand.
