First off, I am very sorry to hear of your troubles and current situation. I used to work as an OT prior to my health issues and I know how hard it is to use some of those adaptive equipments.
Second off, tell your D.H. to chill! His not understanding your situation is only making your current situation 10 times worse and will in no way ease your pain, nor make your emotional eating get under control. Sit him down, explain to him what you need in him, and what you need for yourself to get self healthy.
Now, for yourself, put yourself together. realize that this is all a temporary situation and that you will come out of this a whole person. How you come out at the other end, is up to you. You may not be able to use your dominant hand, but you can use your legs and go for a walk in the sunshine. Listen to some music, watch a favorite movie, call a good friend. Do what you need to make it through the day, without relying on food as a crutch. And when you have made it through one day, then get up, and go through the next day.
I struggle every day as an emotional and binge eater with major health issues. All I can do is offer support. But you will come out of this.
I am sending some hugs your way.
