    Side Effects

    Well this is regarding my husband going through his treatment. We got married this past July and new he had cancer but now as he is going through the treatment it's difficult seeing the person your in love with fight for their life. Fever follows his Radiation treatment as well ss nausea and chills but sometimes I think the mental part of all of this is the worst. He feels like he's instructive and useless and that's just not the case. I call him my Superman because he still gets up and works from home as much as possible and when he's feeling better he lifts weighes and is very active. He's so beautiful inside and out and is my hero and inspiration. I know he feels alone at times but I want hi to know I will always be here even if I don't know what he may truly be going through I am compassionate and I love him. I want to say the right things I hope someone on this site can give me the words or what they are experiences are like so we don't feel alone.
