Just I'm not having a great time right now. My boyfriend's grandmother just died from cancer today so I canceled the visit to my mom I had been planning for a few weeks (for her funeral and to support him) because I keep going over there to take care of her because shes currently going through radiation therapy after chemo because she has stage 3 breast cancer. Shes going to be fine but its been a rough 2 years. And tomorrow I have a doctors appointment to check up on my precancer cells which ive already had 2 surgeries 6k in medical bills and have been monitoring since I have been 17 (21 now) I hate cancer. I can't get any more treatment for mine until it grows or goes away but every time I go in I have to have biopsies usually. I could go my entire life without hearing that word ever again. I feel bad for anyone else who ever has to deal with it or ever will. I don't know what the point of this thread is I just have no idea who to talk to or what to do I guess.
I am so sorry to hear about what you’re going through, nibattack. I’ve been trying to be supportive to my Mother In-law who has been going through stage three breast cancer. My wife has been going through the lion’s share of driving her to chemo, radiation various surgery appointments, and being her health advocate. So I’ve been trying to be as supportive to her as possible too, but it’s been an emotional two years.
She too has been getting more cancers and has had to go through more radiation and some different chemo, and this time it doesn’t look very good. She still wants to fight it, though. Fortunately, she’s able to better afford the expense, but I can only imagine the expense and time for a regular working stiff, or a student.
Please keep some good thoughts. Best of luck to you and your family.
Thanks everyone. I kinda wasn't expecting a response and I get on this morning and everyone is so nice! My doctors appointment went fine if anyones wondering and I'm sorry for your loss @cooke and I'm sorry for your struggles @rickrudge cancer is slow and insidious and targets at random. I hope you both find peace and happiness regardless of outcomes.
