This is my first post. My husband of 27 years was diagnosed with stage 1 esophageal cancer in May of 2010. He went through chemo, radiation and surgery. In September of 2011 scans showed that the cancer had returned and gone into the bones making him stage 4B. He had 22 weeks of chemo and went on a break. In less than a month there are definite indications that the beast is back.
We faced this beast together and united for so long. Now I am a constant cause of anger to my husband. He is upset by the smallest things. I try not to react, but I don't always succeed. I feel guilty, frightened and very unloved.
Has anyone else experienced this? I am trying to be rational and understanding, but am not always successful.
