My 42 year old boyfriend was diagnosed with cancer in April of this year. He lives with me and my 2 children. He has had 6 chemo treatments and with each one he seemed to suffer more. I have a few questions for the caregivers out there, because I'm new to this. Does chemo alter someone's personality or their judgement? He recently just left and is staying with his friend. He said he's tired of everyone telling him what to do. That's it, just cut me off completely. I'm at a loss here of how to handle. I'm trying to give him some breathing room to sort out what's going on in his head, but it's so hard. I can't stop crying, I can't sleep. It's draining and exhausting. He's so angry about his cancer, he just doesn't care. If anyone has been through something similar or has any input. I'm driving myself crazy and would appreciate any advice. Thanks so much.
