My 31yr old fiance was diagnosed with a grade III anaplastic astrocytoma in Feb 06. Ever since then his parents have seemed to baby him every step of the way. In some ways it has hindered his recovery process. I have offered my help and my advice b/c I am an RN to them, after all this is the man I am suppose to marry and his parents dont seem to want any of my help and they even treat me like a child. They have the mentality that they are his parents and they know whats best for him which by the way is BS! Not to mention that my fiance was in a major car accident this past where he broke both of his legs and within the last 3 weeks he has had brain surgery again - which resulted in good news. Anyhow, I was wondering how are all the other significant others dealing with their loved ones family?!?! And are mine the only warped ones out there?!?! Has anyone been to counseling/ support groups and how has it helped?!?! I really, really look forward to hearing from anyone with good advice!!!!
