My husband doesn't handle stress well. He doesn't handle change well. Unfortunately, this appears to be two of the things that cancer is made of. I was just diagnosed a few weeks ago, and I am having a hard time with it. It's so scary, and at this point it still feels like I have more questions than answers. Waiting to get the ball rolling with the surgery next week and my treatment plan revealed after that... I also work full time, and have two young children. My husband works full time as well. I have other commitments (A ton of paintings I have been commissioned to do, that I can't bail out on) that keep me up late most nights since that is my only time left to work on them. I have had a hard life. I get really down sometimes. When I do get down and am not my "normal" self in his eyes (happy and happier), he gets mad. He gets mad when I am sad, short-tempered or frustrated. Mad if I want to go to the store by myself or just relax. I don't get it. I have to deal with my feeling sometimes, and right now, it feels like I get punished for it. Anyone else understand this?
