This week, we found out my BPDbf has cancer :*( The treatment is going to be very aggressive and I know this is going to be an EXTREMELY long, difficult road. He has been very calm and positive and strong and I am in front of him...away from him is a whole other story! I am looking for possible book recomendations, anyone with any experience with this and advice would be greatly appreciated.
Its a tough road, no matter what and I am sorry to hear this.
I have had patients with BPD get seriously sick and please know that there IS help for him..emotional, mental, etc. His caregivers shold be looking at this holistically and getting him the help he needs to manage everything that is coming his way.
There are also cancer support groups for family members, so this is another resource.
Please keep us posted. I wish all the best for him in this rough journey.
