I could not find one article for carers in relation to being supportive through a Ca diagnosis and the challenges with a coexisting mental health diagnosis @EOR (articles are primarily for medical practitioners, some for patients).. I learnt from @Emelia8 and her experience as a carer (and now as a patient).
My husband has oncologist appt tomorrow to review his 3 month CT scan results. He's been very quiet and sleeping lots. Has had a sore throat for weeks. Bipolar still basically under control. Both anxious about appointment.
Tonight one of my son's (29y.o) showed up on my doorstep extremely upset. He has history of PTSD after finding his best friend dead 2 years ago.
He can't tell me what's wrong. Had a shower and has gone to bed. I'm worried.
