i would like to hear from other caregivers on how they are doing. My husband is the one who has cancer and he is in the hospital with fevers of unknown origin. I am worried sick as he gets worse, I cry often and feel helpless.

@Sluggo Hi, my sister cared for my brother-law when he was struck with lung cancer. He died about 2 years after being diagnosed, but it was long and painful. I saw how much she suffered and I imagine your suffering is just as great. When I asked her about how she coped, she said she found a support group for caregivers that really helped because she needed to talk and cry without feeling like she was a burden on anyone. I don't know if you can go to group meetings sometimes, but I think it might really help. I'm so sorry about your situation.
