I’m sure this is normal but it’s also incredibly hard for me 

  • Hi  and a very warm welcome to the online community which I hope you'll find is both an informative and supportive place to be.

    I'm sorry to read that your spouse has been diagnosed with cancer and is angry all the time. A cancer diagnosis brings with it a whole range of emotions both for the patient and their family. You might like to look at this information from Macmillan on feeling angry when you have cancer as it might provide you with some ways in which your spouse could seek help.

    The online community is divided into different support forums so I'm going to recommend that you join the carers only forum which is a great place to share your worries and emotions with others who have a loved one living with cancer.

    To join, just click on the link I've created and, once you've joined, you can start a new post in the same way as you did here and join in with existing conversations by clicking on 'reply'.

    It would be great if you could put something about your spouse's diagnosis and treatment to date into your profile as it really helps others when replying to you and also when looking for someone on a similar pathway. It also means that you don't have to keep repeating yourself. To do this click on your username and then select 'Profile'. You can amend it at any time and if you're not sure what to write you can take a look at mine by clicking on my username.
