I’m sorry to read about your partners
diagnosis and all that you’re both experiencing.
You mention that your partner has been
experiencing a lot of pain recently. Here on our Support Line unfortunately we
aren’t medically trained so as you have concerns about this we would suggest
for you to get in touch with a health care professional such as his GP or
specialist nurse if you haven’t already done so. If you need medical support
outside of GP opening hours, we have information about accessing services here:
Coping with change and uncertainty can be
challenging and there really is no right or wrong to way feel. You may find
that your emotions fluctuate regularly and rapidly and it is understandable
that you say you feel frightened about what may be ahead.
Supporting a loved one through their
illness can evoke powerful emotions for both people. Information about how to
cope with feelings that you may be experiencing as a carer can be found on our
website here: https://www.mariecurie.org.uk/help/support/being-there/helping-someone-cope/dealing-with-feelings .
Many people tell us that they find it
helpful to talk to someone about how they are feeling. If you or your partner ever
need a listening ear, please call our Freephone Support Line on 0800 090 2309,
or you can get in touch with us through our web chat function here: https://www.mariecurie.org.uk/help/support/marie-curie-support-line
