I am having a problem discussing things outside the Cancer Land arena with my husband. He has had 3 lung surgeries since 2005 and is now in chemo. He's doing well. He's 68, I'm 61. I am trying to talk to him about things that may seem trivial to him, but to me are some of the glue that holds me together. I need to think of the two of us having fun again. I want him to think of the future and the possibility of fun. I don't want him to be all gloom and doom - the drs. don't seem to be giving us the impression that there is extensive cause for immediate worry. We are taking treatments very seriously and are being diligent about at home care. I'm being realistic and I'm not in denial, but I do want to know if anyone has insight into why the "world out there" is off bounds for discussion.
