I am pretty sure I have some form of cancer but there has been no diagnosis yet. Elevated AMAS, weight loss, no appetite and ever present right side, mid-back pain which all point to something funky in the pancreas area.
The problem is that I really don't know if I have the stamina or even the desire to face the road ahead. I don't even know precisely what I am facing.
I'm in my 50s and married but there has been no warmth between us for years. (Don't ask why we stayed together... don't know... probably afraid of change.)
I have always been the person who "took care of things", and I don't know that people will be able to accept me in any other role.
How do people cope with this when there is little or no emotional support at home?
