I'm really in a lot of pain when it comes to thinking out loud about things my husband and I could/might do together once chemo is over and he is hopefully doing better. Of course all of that is implied. Nothing is certain. So when I talk about the summer house, or a trip to Costa Rica or just going somewhere - anywhere - he gets all "This isn't helping me." Well...it's helping me. Sometimes I just have to get out of Cancer Land and travel to other places where things aren't all gloom and doom and you are free to talk about the future and fun. Is anyone else going through this? I am the best caregiver imaginable. But when I lighten my load with frothy fantasy, my husband goes nuts. It's not as though I take what's going on lightly. Any input would be appreciated. Thanks guys.
