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.See More

New Here

Hey everybody,I am new to this group and to online forum in general. I am very much a pen and paper person but I need support that I can get at any time of day due to full time work and parenting!Dad died on May 2nd this year and after the initial pain I thought I would be ok. As it turns out, the grief has snuck up behind me and I am really missing the hell out of him. How do others deal with this?See More

Profile Information

About Me:
I am a mom of a toddler and 9 year old stepdaughter and I work as an assessment clinician at the local community mental health center. I love the outdoors, reading, writing, and creating mixed media art.
About my Loss:
I lost my beloved dad to pancreatic cancer May 2nd of this year (2017). I was beside him for his last breath with my then 14-month old daughter on my lap. Weeks after he died I learned that his wife was spending time with another man in the garage while my dad was in the house dying, and that was too much for me to bear. I had told my dad that his wife and I would remain in each other's lives, but now I find myself completely unable to tolerate even the thought of her. That situation complicated my grief.
