"I am new here. I lost my husband to pancreatic cancer on March 5th after almost 4 years since his diagnosis. He fought a good fight and had 2.5 years in remission. I'm doing fairly well but would like to connect to other people who've lost…"
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.See More

"Titi, I should also mention that I had to fake being ok for a long period of time before I actually started to really feel like I was ok. The thing I hated most of all then and now was being treated by others as if I was made of glass and in…"

I lost my best friend! Just over a month ago my Mum and Dad were knocked down by a car when crossing a road. My Mum is ok but my Dad suffered severe head injuries and died 24 hours later in Intensive Care. We were all with him. My Dad was my first love and the love of my life. I spoke to him everyday.

"No, 3 months is not the time to be "better now." 6 months is even fresh and raw. A year? Still raw. Two? Three? Probably getting easier to cope.
I'm going to say that you still feel like it was literally last week Mom died, am I…"

"Thank you Sheryl and Lisa. I guess I tend to ask myself if what I'm doing is ok, normal, etc. It's just something I do. I don't want to do something wrong and only figure it out later, so talking and reading about other …"
"Thank you Micheal and Jackie, I really appreciate you answering me, you said exactly what I'm feeling. I'm at up and down. I don't want to be alone but than I want everyone to leave. I'm so tired. Food has no taste. My mom…"
