I'm here looking to share with someone/people in a similar situation. My husband was diagnosed 3 years ago with advanced prostate cancer/metases into his bones. He is currently undergoing 2 forms of chemo - intravenous and tablet. At 54, he's young but the diagnosis was too late. So I'm the carer - working at the same time and taking care of the small 5 acres that we have. Everything was possible when it was the two of us, now it all seems so overwhelming and I seem to just be doing everything. My stepdaughter is here and she helps but she's 20 and so is on the brink of her own life.
So - my husband is currently depressed and i know that partly it's due to the meds, but is this it? Is this how he will spend the rest of his life? staring out into space, making v little conversation? Its just so sad.
So that's me!
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.
