My fiancee’s mom is very sick, probably terminally so. It is an extremely sad and frustrating time. I’ve tried to “be there” for my partner for anything he asks, i.e. hang out at the hospital with him, clean their house, bring over food, pick up groceries/prescriptions, take out their dog, etc etc.
Yesterday he told me he felt “alone” and that he thought we would be more of a “team” throughout this. It really took me aback as I don’t know what else I can be doing. I ask him if they need anything multiple times every day.
So I’m like… is this just his stress and emotions talking, or am I somehow dropping a ball I’m not even aware of?
I’m mostly just venting I guess but any thoughts are welcome.
