    YQM shared an experience

    Loss (Lost loved one): I lost my husband on Jan 6th. We had a great Christmas, but on Jan 1st he suddenly got confused and went downhill fast. The doctors gave him 4/6 months, so the fact I had him for 12 months is a praise. My life will never be the same now.

      I am sorry for your loss. It may take time for you to find your footing; give yourself the time you need to grieve. YQM I'll remember you in my prayers that the grace of God will minister sweet blessings of comfort on you.

      I too am sorry for your loss and living with that fear now. As my husband has been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. He is doing what the Drs are telling him to do and getting chemo.
      My prayers are with you.

      I was my mother's caregiver for 30 years and she just passed last winter. There were many down times. As a matter of fact, she entered hospice the day before my birthday. She wished me a happy birthday, like that could ever be. I never celebrated my birthday last year, even though I have survived 2 different cancers in the past 2 years. You can ask a friend or family member to give you a break and just do what you need to do for yourself (beauty salon, movie, dinner, cry)

      It is like an up & down roller coaster. I try now not to get too excited over good results so that the news from the not so good results is less of a fall. I also have started going to counseling and started socializing with friends. This is such an ugly disease it effects the whole family. If I could have a good cry & not wake up with swollen eyes I would.
