My husband is still up and about and knows alot, but, sometimes he just snaps and asks who I am.  When I answer truthfully he gets very upset.  How should I answer this?

Same when he asks me where I live. It makes him very angry when I tell him.

Vague answers are sometimes the way to go and may lead him to remember who you are in a very round about way.  

Here's an example:

Hi,  I know this can be very upsetting, but the reason he does not recognize you is that his short term memory is gone and he very likely would recognize you as you were 15 or 20 years ago. This does not mean he no longer loves you. Simply say I'm here to help your wife take care of you. If he asks where she (you) is, simply say:  "she went out for a while."
Hoping this helps

I like the AFM516 's answer. vague is best.  Who are you?  " I am your friend...."  You can experiment with this until you find the answers that hopefully will not upset him.  Peace always Veronica (VKB)
