I thought I had been through alot in my life... my chronic depression, PTSD, and anxiety disorder have been in check for years... but watching my significant other slowly fade away.... is killing me.... we are in a no man's land... liver cancer.... no hope for any treatment... and don't dare call hospice... they'd probably quit what treatment he is getting... so without family alone... we wait... while I try to work and keep a roof over our heads... and I had to turn down a job that would have paid me 3 times what I'm earning right now... I just could not leave his side... and I don't know if I'll ever have an offer like that again... guess, what will be will be... and so this will probably be our last Valentine's Day.. so I bought him a dozen roses balloons and gave him my love... for now... we wait in no man's land....

Arneeb,

I am so sorry to hear about your situation. My thought and prayers are with you and your loved one.

Try to take each day at a time and enjoy your time with him. I know that this is hard, but there is a higher power helping you. I lost my first husband to lung cancer in 2000. It wasn't easy, but I made it through. Just being together helped us. I too had to leave my job because I wanted to be by his side. It brought that appreciation of eachother and making the most of each day, which we should have been doing to begin with, but I guess there are times we take eachother for granted without meaning to.

I hope that your days together are fullfilling to both of you. Know that we are all here for you.

Best wishes,

Hugs, Karen

I just am blind sided by this.... and struggling to keep my depression and PTSD in check... and find myself withdrawing from him... and I can't afford to lose my job... and the job I turned down... I may never get an offer like that again... but I just have to follow this through to the end... and then deal with where I'm going... this is most likely our last Valentine's day together... so yes.. one day at a time... he has some huge balloons and a dozen roses... by his beside...... and lot's of love from me... and we'll go forward... thank you..
