When you were diagnosed and going through treatments. Did your memories help you get through the rough times or hurt?
My husband has just finished up his last radiation/chemo rotation (5 rotations in all so it's been a long 10 weeks for us).
Anyway I thought since we just got married less than 4 months ago that he would love to watch our wedding video and remember how happy we were just a few months ago and how much he has to fight for.
He has no interest in watching it or looking at the photos.
In some ways I understand since he doesn't look like the same person anymore - he's lost 51 pounds, lost his hair, his face is messed up from chemo/radiation, ete.
I just don't know what to do to cheer him up or get him motivated. All he does is sit on the couch day in and day out watching tv. He won't even sleep in our bed as he says he's not comfortable laying down (but when I get up in the morning to get ready for work, he's laying down on the couch sleeping).
When I question him he said it's because his skin is burning, he's tired, etc. WHen I tried to get him to go outside for a walk or to the park or soemthing to do he says he is too tired and just wants to stay home and recover.
Any thoughts. Did anyone else feel this way while they were having treatment or just finished?
