How can I deal with my emotions, it’s affecting me and my appointments and I become very low and unwell
You may be surprised at this but I understand your partner.
I acted this way towards my Mum when she was dying. Mum and I were very close she was my rock.
I could not believe that my larger than life, outspoken Mum had been replaced by this other person, ill. I shut off simply because I could not cope. My sister was brilliant with Mum, all I felt was anger that she had changed. I honestly did not know how to cope.
May I suggest that you speak to a Macmillan nurse together. She needs to be supported emotionally as do you.
I do hope that you both find the strength to see this through with the right help and support
