  1. My husband started chemotherapy and radiation today. He has 3-6 months with no treatment and 1-2 years with treatment. So we are doing treatment. Made it real today starting treatment. My best friend moved 2000 miles away a year ago. I have my sister but she is a single mom of 5 kids. I don't have many other friends. Where can I make friends at a time like this? Any ideas? I can't stand the thought of being alone when my husband passes.
  2. He has 1-2 years with treatment but that's still just a statistic. But I just hope we can buy a lot of time to have together. Thanks for the support.
  3. Thanks everyone. It's nice to have a forum to get support. We've been married 17 years. He's only 50 years old and I'm 44. This sure isn't fair. I'm not supposed to have a dying spouse at this age. I also hope for a miracle Marg M. It puts me in denial that everything will be fine. Because he looks fine right now. I'm a hospice nurse and I've seen the worst cases of brain cancer. I wish I hadn't. Then I could have some ignorance to the problem. I just wish everyday this wasn't happening to us. But I agree to just live in the moment. That's all I have. Thanks everyone.
  4. My husband has terminal brain cancer. How does one prepare emotionally for losing your spouse? I'm scared and devastated. I'm trying to enjoy every moment we have. Take pics and videos. But I know nothing is enough. Thanks.
  5. I'm new here but I'm looking for support for dealing with my husband having brain cancer. Without treatment he has 3-6 months to live. With treatment he has 1-2 years. The average is a year. We are doing treatment and we start chemotherapy today and radiation tomorrow. I'm afraid to lose him. I don't know what kind of life I'll have or how to be alone. I just think I'll be so lonely. Grief is the hardest work there is and I don't want to do it. How did anyone else out there deal with anticipatory grief? Thanks for your support.
