    I'm sure that there are others on this site with similar issues. It's a shame that no-one has so far replied to you.

    I can't say that my wife is unsupportive, but as she is partially disabled, and I'm her carer, she's unable to give me much in the way of any practical support. It can be difficult at times, looking after others, when you wish someone could take care of you instead.

    Is your partner just being selfish, or are they finding your diagnosis difficult to handle?  Perhaps, one or both of you would find it useful to talk to someone. Is there a Maggies centre (or similar) that you could visit. I've found the support given, by both staff and visitors, very helpful.

    All The Best
