emotional abuse from a partner who has cancer, how to cope?

12 Nov 2017 13:59

My wife has cancer. We’re half way through her chemo treatment and I’m finding it increasingly difficult to deal with her daily emotional abuse. She was very controlling and negative before all this happened so you can imagine what she’s like now. Tips please

Hi my husband has terminal cancer and I'm going through the same daily stress as you. The mood swings are awful. To the point iv been in tears and thought of walking away although I never would. I hope you have someone close you can talk to.
