Re: suggestions needed and wanted
It is so very hard to watch someone you love die, and that is basically what is happening now if he's on palliative care. He may indeed be depressed, but then...who wouldn't be? Also it's possible that the illness itself is sapping his energy and also causing changes in mood. But regardless...if he only has a short time to live, the only thing to do is let him live it his way. It might not be the way you or I would choose to go, but this is about him now.
About the only thing you can do is keep on being who you are...a loving and supportive wife, and take care of him as best you can, but don't expect much from him as he doesn't have it to give anymore.
You may want to find a support group for caregivers of cancer patients to help you, yourself, cope with this.
