Differing communication styles leading up to a SCT
This is great to have a new section in the forum dedicated for partners, friends and carers. Thank you.
We were told that my partner had to go in for her SCT in January, this has now been moved back to late April. The lack of communication about this from her team is quite concerning though she has been told that a specialist 'transplant coordinator' will be in touch soon so that we can discuss the practical side of things e.g. what to take in, what is allowed etc. However, it's deeply frustrating to have to wait quite a bit longer (and seeing her health deteriorate so much).
We have very different communication styles (internalising vs externalising) and I wondered if anyone else has had a similar issue and if they had any advice on this matter? I tend to try/want to plan to the nth degree (or as much as practicably possible) whereby my partner is less inclined to do so. Our different styles are slowly exacerbating an already difficult situation and I'd love to reach a middle ground.
Thanks in advance for any thoughts anyone has.
