Fri, Jul 24 6:14am · Colon cancer metastasized to lungs: Husband severely depressed in Colorectal Cancer

I am so sorry about your wife. Alzheimers is a cruel disease.
I think it is great you can keep her at home. Although that means a lot less time for you to recoup and refresh. Do you have someone to come in and stay with her so you can get out for a while?
Thank you for your response, I think you have it worse and it brought me back to reality. My mom died of alzheimers a couple years ago. It was devastating to watch. I've got to stop the selfish complaining and feeling sorry for myself.
As i understand it colon cancer with metastatic lung cancer generally live 5 years or less after diagnosis. Does anyone know if that is correct? He's starting on year 7 now, and although things are different and will never be the same, he is still here and capable of taking care of himself.
Sometimes i have to step back and find things to be grateful for.
THERE IS ALWAYS SOMETHING TO BE THANKFUL FOR. Everyone have a nice day !

update. I have started moving on to projects to do. To keep myself busy. My boss told me I will now permanently work from home. So my new project is to set up a nice office space in a spare bedroom. Its going to be more in my eyes. It will be a retreat for myself. Am I running away tho?
He didn't like the colors I picked out- I said nothing just continued. I am going to refinish my moms old desk also. Knowing whatever I decide to do to it he will find something wrong with it. It's a horrible life never ever being complimented on anything I do.
Then I feel selfish.
In September he will have another scan. Sometime in October he will have a lung biopsy. That is going to help a lot knowing for sure if the lesions are scars or if the cancer is still there trapped inside.
I tell myself so many people have it so much worse. But it is getting harder to be positive after 7 years of this. I'm exhausted, but my doctor prescribed thanks to xanax at bedtime i am able to & sleep at least.

I just had my colonoscopy last week. Someone said use a straw and that was a great idea! To me it just is so salty and I don't eat a lot of salt. Best wishes .

Right!!. I just want things to be as easy as possible for him. I am the same, I want to be prepared prepared googling. everything, asking questions finding out side effects. Etc. I think in my mind it makes it easier for him. But he doesn't want to know
He's not the same man.
That makes it hard.
I just want to run away sometimes. I feel awful even saying that. I can't even imagine what it would be like on his end.
Prayers and hugs
