My husband (mid 30's) was recently diagnosed with GBM-4 about 1mth ago. He has already undergone a crainiotomy and is on rad treatment w/ temodar. Life has changed for us in a blink of an eye. Our marriage has always been good, we were very into eachother sexually and emotionally. He went from being extremely active and healthy to being quiet and withdrawn half the time. There are days when he seems fine and joking around to days where he barely says 5 words to me. He is tired most of the time now due to the treatments and I truly understand that. All this worries me, but also something that to most people including myself is very private. But, I have no one to talk to so here I am......... Has anyone living with a spouse experienced their loss "love and affection" (in every sense of those 2 words)? I have debated posting this for weeks because I don't want to seem selfish or insensitive, but I really need to know if it is normal. I asked the dr and she seemed to look surprised that I would be asking such a question. If anyone out there understand me.....please please help me.
