Husband is Retired & Has Cancer Too !
Ok I need to vent or I am going to burst!
My Husband retired a little over a year and he has prostate cancer. We are both in our 60's.
I thank God I am in Decent health but my Husband is at times in pain with this cancer. He does nothing to help himself, he sits all day on the couch watching TV and goes to bed at 7-8 every nite.
We sleep in separate rooms because I need quiet time away from him. He would follow me from room to room, this was making me crazy! I feel sorry for him but also feel sorry for me as I have no life! I do Everything, Cook, Clean ,Mow the Lawn,Bills & Take him to Dr appointments 10 times a month sometimes! At night I just cry myself to sleep as I am just so depleted.
We have been married for over 40 yrs & I never thought it would end like this!
The cancer is in his bones, he is on hormone therapy so he has good and bad days! But even when he feels good, he still sits on the damn couch in his PJ's! It is so depressing to see him like this .
I feel it is starting to take a toll on me also. I do get my butt to the gym as I feel I have to keep strong to take care of him! UGH!!!
