HI Everyone, I need some help. My husband was diagnosed late March 2018 with pancreatic cancer stage 4 that has spread to his liver. He is on chemotherapy but does not do well with it, he is sick for about 4 days after and just when his system starts to get better he has another lot. So far we have had 1 scan that shows it is shrinking, but when he gets so sick he often wonders what is the point of it. Especially when we are told that it will come back time and time again. We have been given a possible time frame of 3 to 4 yrs maybe. The problem is that he is so depressed about it that he can't get past that fact. He doesn't want to do anything and has even stopped working, just keeps saying whats the point theres no future. I try and be positive but it can get really depressing. I don't know how to deal with this anymore, am I being insensitive when I think that he has to go on for us? We have been together for 35yrs and I don't want to lose hope. Does anyone know of a good counsellor that we can go to? He has become so dependant on me that Iam starting to feel trapped. I am seeking some help for us as feel as it everything is falling apart.
