I have been over on another thread for my partner... who has end stage liver disease... but saw my own little corner of the world here... I have struggled with chronic depression and PTSD all of my life.... now... seems to be in check... I have found that physical exercise helps me quite a bit...
 
anyways.. dealing with a dying partner right now... don't know why I'm not down with the depression.. maybe just too traumatized... and busy.. and working to deal with my own stuff.. but hi guys.. Arneeb

Hi Arneeb,

It sounds like you are very busy with helping your partner. Often when we are in that situation, we tend to be too busy to think of ourselves, or running on automatic. It is when things slow down that we really feel it. I always functioned better under stress than not.

Oh yes, welcome to the depression forum. It sounds like you are going through a lot and I really do feel for you. I am sorry about your partner. This is really sad. If you want to go into more detail about it, feel free. Vent here if you need. This is a good place to talk about life's problems. And we are here to support you.

Take care, keep posting.

Hugs, Karen

I've had wonderful support over on the Hepatitis forum.. but that's for him... I suffer PTSD and Chronic Depression... serious issues... from childhood... raised in orphanage... raped by grandfather at 5... and on and on... bad marriages... and then at 47 found the love of my life... and he's dying.. sometimes I got so angry at God for bringing me through all this garbage to find this man... and now he's dying.. but then I realize how very special it is to have experienced this type of caring and love... Mike brings tears to my eyes with the simple things that he does... when he asks "are you ok" I have to pinch myself and ask... u talkin to me?? someone cares?? I feel fortunate to spend these moments with him.. and hopefully we can forestall and cheat the grim reaper for a while... we won't know... but we're sure gonna fight.. down to Mayo Clinic, Jan 4th for a week... Rochester, MN... I'm sure God will guide us and protect us.. Happy Holidays to all!!

I watched my first husband die of lung cancer in 2000.  It was hard, but somewhere I got strength.  I was also fortunate enough to have caring people to help me, I will never forget them. 
 
When he died, I was holding his hand.  I felt the energy leave his body and his face became so peaceful and youthful.  So there is something to life after. 
 
What you are doing is a wonderul thing and you will have help in the end.  I am sure of that.  It becomes a private thing at the end though.  Just you and him, even if there are others in the room.  I pray that you will have strength to get through this.  It comes from somewhere. 
 
Know that we are here for you during this difficult time.  Keep posting and let us know how things are going.
 
We are your support group now and we all care about you and yours. 
 
Hugs, Karen
