Morning Everybody! Our Oncology nurse told me about this forum earlier this week. A great comfort and very interesting. Well I am here to support the partners. The husbands, the boyfriends, the partners! The ones on the sidelines. I know how difficult the last 5 1/2 years have been for ME, and and there must be people out feeling the same as I do. Trying to underpin the family and hold together a thread of normality is extremely difficult, especially after years of having your hope and spirit chipped away. I guess I am just looking to understand a bit more about the other husbands, dads, partners and find some kind of reassurance that my journey is similar to the many others that find themselves in my position. It is tuff, and is getting tuffer all the time. I feel like I have had the lid to my emotions screwed on far too tightly, and I hope that joining this forum and finding a common ground with people will help me.
