What you said makes perfect sense, no ramble at all 🙂 My Wife knows I/we have amazing support from friends etc, but unfortunately this doesn't prevent her from still bottling up all that is going on in her head. A chat with her family and friends confirmed that she has always been like that and even her friends haven't really figured her out, even when things were 'normal'. I knew she had that guarded response to things that worry her after 5 years of relationship. I wish she could relax a bit and release some of the pressure by communicating more and seeking out those limitless hugs and cuddles I am eager to give,instead of leaving it too late andletting it out in the form of a sharp tongue and angry outbursts. However, I have skin like rhino hide and so I don't mind being a punch bag too much, well not whilst all this is going on.
I am just worried that one day she'll completely break, especially when she needs to be mentally strong for getting through the really tough bits of chemo.
Keep on trucking

Hi, thanks for the replies they have been a big help and I'm touched that people I don't know and who are being treated themselves have the compassion to take time to reply.
I have been texting my sister and its been so much easier as I don't have to worry about becoming upset. Also as the text conversations have gone on we have started to talk about other things like Christmas etc and I think that this has helped us both.x
Hi Mille, I hope things are ok with you?
