I feel like sharing, and I know people on here will understand. My husband, who has been in remission for NHL for 12 months, was referred to a psychologist today. As well as being diagnosed with incurable cancer last year, he has been having shocking job stress for 2 years, so I'm not suprised. I've known this would happen for the last few months; I've been waiting for him to be ready to ask for help, but I still find myself upset by it. Is that weird? If I've known for ages that it's going to happen, why do I still feel shocked that it has? Has anyone else had this experience? Emily
All sounds a bit human to me! I think no matter how much we kind of 'know' something there is always a part of us that hopes it is not going to happen. However it sounds like it is a good thing that he has asked for help. I imagine you probably feel sad that he is in such a difficult situation. Take care Rikki
Cancer Council NSW would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we live and work.We would also like to pay respect to elders past and present and extend that respect to all other Aboriginal people.
