    All I can say is, I'm sorry you have to go through this more alone than you would like. If it's any consolation, some people find that they worry more about their significant other and how he or she...

    I am not a doctor, but my wife had cancer for eight years including long-term chemo administration, and, after her cancer became terminal, she turned down all further treatment because she wanted not...

    Failing at moving on

    Hi All,

    Posting here because I'm in the middle of a panic attack, thinking I can't handle the job of carrying on, years after my wife died of cancer. She died in 2012 after an 8 year battle, at...

    Jesus, I thought I was doing pretty well today, but reading your post her made me, a 49 year old man, burst into tears. The bittersweet bit between your son and his mom, thinking about the two of...

    My father was just like that. Life was always hard in our family, money was tight, my father had to work seven days a week. But he never complained, was always a wonderful, wonderful guy. But just...

    My wife was diagnosed with anal cancer at 36. Even though we always talked optimistically to one another, we discovered later that we both predicted at the time of diagnosis that she would have less...

    Of course you need a place to live, that's nothing to laugh at. But you can probably get your credit fixed up enough by using Definiens' advice to be able to rent an apartment. I was always terrified...

    Just wanted to second this. I discovered after a horrible episode that I suffered from depression, long before my wife became ill, and I was treated with Celexa and lots of cognitive therapy with a...

    Hi Erin, it's been five years since I lost my wife to cancer at 44. I still have times where I just sob and honestly do not want to continue living, feeling like it's just too hard and I can't do it....
  10. Hi All, original poster here. I started this...

    Hi All, original poster here. I started this thread in November 2011, and almost five years later I'm still visiting it. I don't know if that is good or bad. I'm here because my grief, though not...
  11. Dear George, I'm sorry to hear that you've had...

    Dear George,

    I'm sorry to hear that you've had a similar experience. It's been 3.5 years since my wife died, and although some things are easier, others haven't changed. I still miss her like...
  12. I'm so sorry. All I can say, with experience, is:...

    I'm so sorry. All I can say, with experience, is: don't expect too much from yourself for a long time. I don't know about your job, but really try to take it easy, and one day at a time. Make sure...

    Dear Knight,

    I'm so sorry to hear about what you're going through. Speaking from my own experience: I don't know if this will help, but when this is over, you will be one of those people who walks...
  14. I am so sorry to hear what you're going through....

    I am so sorry to hear what you're going through. I would not want my wife to change on me, to become angry with me just as I was trying to get close to her. I hope you can convince yourself that,...
  15. Yes. One of the blessings of cancer is that you...

    Yes. One of the blessings of cancer is that you have time (sometimes). While it was the hardest thing possible to watch my wife waste away, it did not leave me with the sense of being robbed, as I...
  16. Yes, my wife and I used to talk about how the...

    Yes, my wife and I used to talk about how the future would be when we were doddering old people. I would make her tea in the evenings, and she would straighten my tie. Instead I watched her die,...

    Years ago, but I miss her every day, and I'm still quite messed up about it.
  18. I'm sorry your wife is isolating herself, or that...

    I'm sorry your wife is isolating herself, or that her disease is isolating her. Really, stop worrying about meeting her in the beyond and explaining yourself. If you met, and you really both loved...

    I'm sorry if I there is something wrong with my information, but I believe you said that your wife doesn't have much time left. I think you should have a quiet talk with her. Tell her you want to...

    On my phone more later. I feel the train analogy too. Exactly the same. All I wanted was the journey with Kim, I didn't care about the length. I would have chosen not to live if I had not been...

    Dear Stuart, I'm so sorry to hear what you're going through. I want to write more but only have my phone. I can reply tomorrow. Your wife sounds like a beautiful woman, and it's impossible to...
  22. Hi to a New Friend

    I'm writing this to welcome somebody I've corresponded with online, who is suffering from cancer herself, known as "BlueDotty". Hi, BlueDotty! I hope you'll be able to find help on this amazing...

    Dear Peter,

    I'm so sorry to hear about your wife. My son was 3 when his mom was diagnosed, 11 when she died. I can't say any of it was anything other than hard. But I wish you and your wife all...

    Hi All,

    Jim here. It's been a long time since I've posted. My wife died about 16 months ago. Today is my 46th birthday. My wife will forever be 44. My grief has been like a roller coaster ride....

    Hi All,

    OP here. My wife died January 10, 2012. Last year we spent Christmas and New Year's in her hospice room. For my son's sake (he's 12), I'm trying to have a "normal" Christmas at home:...
