Hi I am sorry to hear about your husband. My name is Linda and I am a 2 time cancer survivor. I had a wonderful family as my care team and some spectacular doctors and of course hope for a future with my family and kids. I feel sad that you think you should hide your feeling from your husband. I think that showing our emotions just shows that we are human and that you love him. Cry together, it will give you strength, when you can tell each other that it is going to be ok and that together you can fight this. For him to be able to comfort you will allow him to feel useful. When I was diagnosed the second time it was devastating. They told me the cancer was stage 4. I was classified as palliative care. I was only 35 and I have three young kids. I cried alot with my husband and I feel it gave me strength knowing how much he cared. Many chose to hide their feeling for many different reasons. He is your husband your closest sole mate. Show him how you feel and it will let him know the unconditional love you have for him and that he must fight like crazy to continue a life with you. Take good care and I will have you and your husband in my prayers. Stay strong and look to the stars. Always reach out for help. It is there for the taking. LindaView Thread
