      Lisa1220, I am so sorry that you feel that you don't get the support you need at home and from your family. A good support system is what helps us get thru it. You need to tell your family you need to talk about this and let them know exactly how you are feeling even if they hesitate. They are afraid just like you but it isn't healthy to hold it in and like I said they need to hear how you feel, if you are scared or anxious, it can give them the opportunity maybe to open up you. I will pray for you, that you get the support you need and deserve. If you can't get it at home please find a good support group close to you because it does help to talk to others that are or have been thru what you are going thru. We all are here to help you in any way that we can. You can cry, laugh, vent or whatever you feel like doing here because we all understand exactly how you are feeling. I am sending you a huge HUG and praying for you! God bless.

      My husband has late stages of liver cancer. I am his only caregiver. I don't get much help but I find that I'm almost fine with that. I'm not working so all I do is take care of him and it gives me comfort that I can do that for him, make him feel loved, and keep him as comfortable as possible. My husband and I are living day to day and enjoying what little bit we can ..... in fact, we are closer now than we have EVER been and that makes it a little easier. I don't know how close we are to the end and I suppose that's when I will need help the most. I don't think I really answered the question, I think I just needed to get this out there. I do know that there are numerous support groups out there if you have no close family or friends, you just have to look for them. Good luck to all of you and I hope your journey isnt too unpleasant, if that is possible.
