I’m having a few bad days, I’ve found out this week a good friend of mine has stage 4 cancer and she is quiet ill, tonight my uncle has passed away from cancer. I lost another uncle last year, good work friend with cancer and also my dad died suddenly 18 months ago with cancer. I’m currently looking after my mother who has been living with cancer for the last 4 years, Thai is her second diagnosis with cancer and we almost lost her 18 months ago too. I don’t know how much more heart ache I can take.
I’m part of the Online Community team and I can see that you are new to the community - I’d like to thank you for bravely starting this thread and sharing how you are feeling. I am so sorry for your losses, and your friend and mother’s illnesses. It sounds like you are coping with such a lot right now and it’s completely understandable that you don’t know much more you can take.
I’m sure someone will be along to offer their support, but I wanted to share a few Sue Ryder resources with you that might be helpful.
