My husband and I both became very depressed after he finished treatment. I think it is becuase we were no longer actively doing anything to fight the disease--just waiting for the other shoe to drop. Antidepressants and trying to resume some kind of normal routine are the two things that have helped us the most. Along with normal routines, occasionally doing something spontaneous helps. Like running away from home for the weekend or going out for a milkshake--we did that the other day for the first time in 18 months! It isn't easy and we still struggle but we try to balance that with doing something small for ourselves both together and individually. Force yourself to do one thing today---one thing just for you--even if it is taking a bubble bath.
