It's seems like I can't make every one happy. In my house if things don't go there way. Everyone wants to come down on me. But when I need someone no one there for me. I get nothing. I don't even have time for my self. I don't know what to do any more

So your husband and children are adults. Then it isn't your responsibility at all to make them happy - it is their responsibility and their responsibility alone. We can't live just to make others happy, it simply doesn't work that way. Time for ALL of them to do for themselves a bit more.

It's not your job to make everyone happy. I don't know how old everyone is in your house, but honestly, there has to be some level of responsibility for taking control of their own happiness.

You should start taking time for yourself. You can't keep refilling everyone else's cup if yours is empty. Take time to "refill your cup" so to speak, which means do things you want and take care of you. Then you can be recharged enough to take care of everything else.

If they want to put him in a home, they must have a diagnosis of some sort.

If your children are telling you what to do, and your husband is not supportive of you, and you are as unhappy as you sound, it is time to leave. I know I would.
