My husband was left disabled after a cancerous tumor to his spinal cord . He has also experienced sequelle from side effects of 4 rounds of chemo.This includes diabetes,prostate cancer requiring prostate removal,ED secondary to that.Paralysis X 1 year,and partial numbness thereafter . He also had the "largest hernia" this doctor ever repaired without opening him up totally . He also had a heart attack requiring a triple bypass.This Started about 12 weeks after the birth of our third child . He has experienced depression after the paralysis .We are people of faith and that has helped us quite a bit but you can't have all this happen and not have it affect you . I tried to get him to go to counseling but he won't . On a daily basis he is very controlling to help him compensate for his feeling of lack of control He comes from a base of anger so is easily angered and looks for fault and suggest fault in his tone of voice . I love this man and want to find a way to help him through his anger . He won't take traditional medications for depression . We talked to his Dr.,he put him on a medication .He took 1 dose ,that's it .Wont take meds . I recommended a support group even if on line . He just sort of smiled at me like " You silly woman",so coming to you all for suggestions . I love him dearly but he was not alone on this journey and is not now . I would like to increase his(and therefore my) happiness guita .Any ideas welcome.🌷
