how do I deal with the friend I am caring for when he goes on a rampage ?
My friend has had liver cancer for six months and was told he wasnt expected to live past a year < He has resumed drinking excessively to the point of passing out .... during his binges and for up to three days after he becomes viscous , abussive and nasty and it is always directed at me.... His nurse recognised that he is in a Psycotic state and has entered into an abusive cycle with me as his target.... his so called family are not supportive of him or me and I have no friends here as I live in Melbourne but have moved to brisbane to care for him.... please Help with any ideas as to how I can help him to stop his destructive and at times scary actions... thanks

my bf has had cancer for nearly a year and ive noticed im his outlet to anger.. wen he had chemo and radiotherapy he used to yell and scream at me over nothing! i think in your situation your friend might be very scared and worried.. being told u dont have long to live is a very big nasty thing... drinking is probably his outlet.. is he having chemo or radiotherapy?
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.
