all alone caring for my husband, dx with lung cancer

Hi erveryone,

 

My husband has been dx with small cell lung cancer in january. 

He went through 4 rounds of chemo and now he's giving a go for a new clinical trial.

 

I am on my own, my mum passed away 2 years ago due to ovarian cancer, the rest of my family is overseas. My friends are all over the state, none closeby. We live about 100 km from Brisbane, in a small village.

I'm getting pretty exhaused and stressed out.

Would be nice to connect with someone

Hi Roxanne, distance can be awful at a time like this.  I can't really offer you anything (I live in Melbourne) except a friendly greeting.  I hope you find lots of support from this group.  You could maybe ask your GP if there are any support networks in your area, or any government benefits you are entitled to- help around the house etc. 

 

Sending warm hugs, Emily
