Losing Someone to Cancer


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.

Hi Morgan,

Babe J has regained use of her paws, I prayed so hard and I think he answered my prayers. If anything happens to her it is the end of my life/

Oh no, Linda, not Babie J?  I am so sorry.  It's like life just wants to  keep throwing things at us just to see our breaking point.  I am constantly watching my life just shrink down.  All I want to do is staying bed and sleep.

Don't care if I die, I have nothing to live for since losing my Husband 5/5/13 and my dog having brain cancer. What purpose is there to life.

My daughter is in med school and is currently doing a clinical rotation in Oncology.  Cancer is a terrible disease. She said she sees all stages of cancer and how it is affecting people.  Most of the patients she sees are smokers or heavy drinkers or obese.    My husband passed from brain cancer.  He was diagnosed and passed within 20 days.  He had liver disease from alcohol, he was a very heavy smoker, but I don't care how badly someone treats their own body, no one deserves to die this way.  Since his death I have decided to take charge of my life.  I eat better, exercise and I feel I'm doing it for him.   I seem to have a different outlook on life and it helps me deal with the grief of losing him.  I find I sleep better.  There is no way to ever know if someone is going to get cancer, or just die suddenly but I know he would want me to embrace every day and that's what doing.....some of the time

I agree with your Mom, cancer is the devil.

Comment by nouse on July 25, 2017 at 11:11pm

I hate seeing pictures of him... he's so thin like the people in the Holocaust pictures.

You said it perfect, there is nothing worth living for without my Husband to share it with.

Comment by Esther on July 23, 2017 at 6:37pm

Today has been waves of numb detachment for me... I try to be positive and hopeful but sometimes we can't force it and must just tolerate the sadness

Does Counselling Really Help?

I’ve not been on here for a while, it’s been so hard just trying to get through the days; keeping myself busy, trying desperately hard not to think about things and often failing miserably. I’m so tired of feeling so shitty all the time. I had my first session with a counsellor today, after feeling initially nervous and not wanting to say much everything came out and I cried like a baby. I feel absolutely drained now and very emotional. So my question is this, does counselling really help or…See More
