Losing Someone to Cancer

This is for anyone who has lost somone to cancer. I lost my adopted Mom to breast cancer some years ago. She was everything I could have asked for. She loved me because I was just me. She also loved my family and children as if they were her own.

I miss my late boyfriend. He has been gone for two years. He died from colon cancer. I want to get on with life without him and start dating again. But it is hard. Mentally I am ready but emotionally not so sure.

i'm having such a hard time.  I lost my husband of 33 years to non-small cell lung cancer after battling other cancers since Nov. 2011 diagnosis for Cancer of the esophagus. I don't think I can go on anymore.  He was my whole world and now I am lost. I thought I was doing so well but now I a not It happened last Sept. 2019 but I took care of him for those many years and its taken a toll on me because he didn't want anyone to know so I isolated with him. I desperately need support right now. Thank you.

True Love never dies.  Hope is Eternal.  Three years ago, the nightmare began and continues to this day.  The Hope now is going where She went which is the first thought I had when She passed in my arms.  I wait for that day to come.  I'll never give that Hope up because I Believe it will happen.

@mandy wilinski. 

I remember when I first got the news. It was a big shock, everyone in my family was surprised, but you have hope, because all you have is hope that they get better. Then as time passes and they gradually decline, you come to the reality you never thought was possible, the worst-case scenario that you thought would never happen and then it happens and really it just feels like you've hit rock bottom and everything that could have gone wrong HAS gone wrong. 

That feeling is just devastating. Its compounded when you don't have anyone you know that you can talk to about it because nobody has gone through the experience. 

I'm sorry for your loss.

Hello everyone. I just lost my dad, not even two weeks ago, and I feel like I can't breathe. He was my favorite person in the world and I sometimes question if I can even function without him. Other times, I still find it hard to believe that he is gone, and then it hits me all over again.

I never got to say goodbye.

He started declining earlier this year so we started getting him treatment and therapy so that he would get better. I haven't physically seen or hugged my dad since I dropped him off at the hospital (due to the virus) over three months ago, and now I never will again. That's the toughest part I guess, all of those missed months that I could have had with him. Now he's gone and I miss him so much it physically hurts.

Has anyone else had a similar experience?

When will it get any better? Can it even get better?

Will I be able to recover?

I came across this online today. I find some of my days are best spent in this kind of quiet, sometimes sad and painful, but reflective thought. The pain reminds me that I loved--and that I still love--and I won't trade that love for even my darkest suffering. The whole experience of loss is teaching me how to grow as a human being; that's what David would want for me and the times I have to ask him for forgiveness for times I hurt him, his answer is for me to correct my errors and love on.
