I am a Breast Cancer survivor in my second round of chemo. I get really tired sometimes at work, and want to leave early but I cann't. My husband of 36 years decided to quit work over a year ago, and hasn't worked since. He isn't even looking. I've used all my sick time and vacation time up. and borrowed on my retirement to give us money to live on during surgery. He says he loves me and wants to be there for me, but how can I get him to realize that I need his help finaancially right now? I love the fact he goes with me to my treatments, and he takes care of me when I need it at home, but I cann't support us on a part time basis, and we have no savings left. How can I make him understand when I get upset that it's not just the chemo talking, I need help from him in other ways. If I get mad, he just shuggs it off to fear, chemo, etc. How can I get him to help. I suggested he go to a Doctor for depression, he says he will when I'm through with the treatments, as he needs to be there for me. Any ideas?
