newbie - caring for terminally ill husband - cancer

Tell us a bit about yourself here.
I am new to the Carers Forum. I am caring for my husband who was diagnosed with cancer - primary lung, secondary bone and liver - in July this year. He is very unwell and we are not sure how long he has left but we are making the most of every day when we can. At the moment he is sleeping a lot.
A lot of the time I am exhausted - I am used to having a busy professional life but this is so different.
It is lonely, scary and sometimes I just don't know what to do with myself.
Am sure you have all heard this so many times but it is so good to be able to say these things without being judged - being a carer has it's rewards but it has it's challenges too.
Thank you for listening x :cry

Hi xstitchgirl

I am carer for someone else. However a person who was/is very important to me died of lung cancer earlier this year. The cancer had gone other places too. I can not say enough to recommend a Hospice. It was the Marie Curie here. Not only did they take very good care of this person they have also done amazing things for all the rest of us. They even had a little meal for him a few months ago at the hospice.

I know you probably dont want to think to far into the future but I wanted to let you know about how good these people have been. I have had other situations but never ever had the comforting presence of the hospice before during and after. I hope I have not offended you.
