Hi Cherbear - thank you for connecting here on the Discussion Forums. Very sorry to hear about your husbands’ stage 4 cancer diagnosis and the challenges you and he are experiencing.

I’m hoping this article from our website might have some helpful information for you, My husband often vents his frustration and anger towards me. I know he is very ill and things aren’t going well, but how can I respond?

We do encourage you to connect further with your husband’s medical team, if you need more information or help with the symptoms or problems he is experiencing. 

Providing support to someone with advanced illness can present unfamiliar situations and the need for information and support so we hope you continue to reach out to those around you who can help.
