My husband was dx in Jan 2016 with small cell LC, had 4 rounds of chemo, now on a clinical trial.
I'm pretty much on my own, all my family o/seas. I have been caring for my husband for a different illness, neuropathy in his legs for over a decade or so. Because of this illness, he's already been withdrawn socially a fair bit, and with SCLC, it really can't get any worse. So no family around, no job, living on damn centerlink.
I'm not getting any support besides some fortnightly tel. support group, or anti f'ing depressant pills from GP. Not taking them, it's like sweeping the dirt under the carpet.
How is everyone else coping?
I'm from Australia.
