The anxiety from waiting and wondering is astounding and debilitating.
High anxiety- husband needs 2nd liver... - Anxiety and Depre...
Yes, the waiting, fear of the unknown, watching your husband struggle.
I know this well. My husband had a heart transplant 22 years ago.
What you do know is your husband received the gift of life once. He survived the wait. You've been through this before. Hang on to hope and try and be strong. At the same time let your feelings out here. Reach out to your friends and family if they are supportive. Do you belong to any support groups?
Talk it out. Don't hold your feelings in.
I 🙏. That things work out for you and your family.
Hi. Thank you for your kindness and insight. Friends and family are supportive but I think they have empathy fatigue. Ironically, in my area there are no support groups for liver transplant patients/ spouses. I spoke with transplant msw at hospital. Yes, been through it before - its difficult to go through it again. Should know more about when he will be on transplant list jan 16. Thsnks again.
