Hello there, I understand how stressful the whole situation can be, many of us on here have experienced something to the effect. Whether emotional or financial but there is assistance out there and support for people. Your never really truly alone even if it may feel like so. I'm sorry to hear about your husband, treatment periods are usually the most bustling of times. But of course, everyone is different and it can greatly vary from person to person. There is no real way to know how someone will response to their treatments. But if your unsure about certain things, it always best to ask your treating doctor and take it day to day. Here are some suggestions, I'm putting in anything that might assist and if not, there are many other wonderful people who can advise as well. * Contact the social worker at your treating hospital and see what services are currently available, to assist you. (Try the cancer council as well, just to see). * Seek additional/continue support from your husband's family or request someone from yours, to come and help for an while. (Seek help from an friend). * Contact the cancer council for local support groups. Cancer Council 13 11 20 is a free, confidential telephone information and support service run by Cancer Councils in each state and territory. If you have a question about cancer, or if you're seeking emotional or practical support, call 13 11 20 to speak to our specially trained staff. Or visit their website for more information? https://cancerqld.org.au/get-support/cancer-emotional-support/cancer-counselling-service/ * There is 1300MHCALL (1300 64 22 55) - Mental Health Services Access. They are able to provide information regarding supportive services and etc. You could even call them and find what services/groups are available. * Talk on here, everyone always love to listen and help. * Maybe centrelink might be able to assist with some form of carer's payment. No harm in checking. I hope something was able to help and remember, your never alone. You have family, friends, general support and us on here too!
