Coping with a spouse who has advanced cancer, in this week’s Dear Prudie extra.

From a letter to Slate's Dear Prudence:

My wife of 30 years has stage 4 metastatic breast cancer that has invaded her spine. She lives in constant pain, using heavy narcotics (such as fentanyl and oxycodone) to get through the day. Although the cancer has spread to quite a few places in her bones, there is no cancer in any major organs....Am I a terrible person for just wanting this to be over? "
