Hi Miki, as I mentioned in our email exchange, I've experienced some depression, after surgery, and the zero PSA result made me happy and thankful but it didn't remove the depression. I think what Bob is going thru is normal, and you're the on,y one around that he can take it out on. Not defending him, but just sayin...
There are a lot of emotions that go with being newly diagnosed/newly treated. Including, dealing with the side effects, and just as big, dealing with our own mortality, as well as knowing that life can change in a split second, with every upcoming PSA test.
So I think like Steve said, maybe give him some space. Time will be a big healer. Try to remember it's not really you that he's angry with. It's the Cancer, and maybe God.
If, in a few months, it's not getting better, you should probably have a talk with the goal of getting him to accept some sort of counseling.
Hope it improves soon
