I am in very difficult situation. My wife has breast cancer for the third time. She is only 39 years old and I am 35 years old. This time around she has become very difficult to deal with. She is very aggressive, she is very hard-headed. We have been married for 11 years, we have two kids who are 8 years old. I am afraid of her reaction towards the kids and myself. I cannot tell her practically anything. If I do, she will act like a crazy person and will disobey all doctor's orders. She has not yet started any treatment, because she just had surgery. Please help me with some advice to avoid any confrontation with her.
I came across a one-day workshop in my community called Cancer, Anger and Transformation.' The program is directed towards people with cancer and their family and friend support group.
I would suggest that you speak with your/her doctor about finding a similar program in your area/community. Also look for a Breast Cancer Support Group that YOU can attend. She may not want to go just now. However, that does not stop you from going and gaining some valuable insights into your wife's emotional state.
