Ive been a carer for over 2yrs to my husband who has lung cancer. We have 3 young children & a business to run. Im feeling very scared, lonely & like the weight of the world is on my shoulders. I have survived with my husband 3 major surgeries, chemo, radiation, dr's apptmnts, scans & pain as well as trying to create some sort of normal life for our children. Having a bad moment but will be alright later on.

Good to hear from you Superwoman. Come back again and chat a bit more. It's a place where you can let go by writing things. I have been using this site for more than two years now and it gives me a huge boost just knowing I can say how it is for me. H

Ditto Harker. Superwoman, when I returned to work after chemo, I had a meltdown one day and my Principal told me that I didn't need to be Superwoman and she sent me home for 2 days. Mind you while she hasn't had cancer she has a family and is a Principal of a large secondary school. I did point out her irony. Jump on here on the bad moments and then sometimes feel free to share the good ones. No judging here. Take care. Samex

Thanks for your kind messages. I am in a better space this week. My husband has finished 2 cycles of chemo without too many side effects, 2 more to go. Anxious for next scans to see how effective his treatment is. Keep your fingers & toes crossed for us.
