I think it's often more difficult for the caregiver than the patient. Try to have a life in spite of his cancer. You need to stay sane for the long haul. I'm 34 months post-diagnosis & both my husband & I see a therapist & we both take anti-depressants. It's been extremely helpful. Don't consider this a sign of weakness. Only strong people recognize when they need help. Also, don't think about how long he has left. Nobody knows. You could walk out the door tomorrow & get run over by a truck & he could outlive you. Make the most of every day. If he can get out, go places & do things. Get dressed up & have dinner in a restaurant. Go see a good movie & talk about it. There are other subjects to talk about beside cancer. If possible, take a vacation -- together.
