Re: Hi...from another newbie

this is such a dreadful debilitating disease. confusion has taken over his mind. when he is awake which is in short periods of 5 minutes every few hours he is confused, annoyed and in so much pain. nurses come twice a week now for his wound dressings. he won't accept my assistance with offers of food, physical nor emotional support. all the recommendations are to make memories, talk and capture positive moments - this is just so difficult and unachieveable. i don't want to be a victim too - I just want to - goodness...what I want just isn't achieveable anymore.

The villan was just too powerful my darling....you fought valliantly, ferociously and for so very very long. Go with the angels my love....no more pain. We know that you will always know what you mean to us and how much we love you and we know you did all you could to protect and support us with your love. We love you forever. Death may have taken you from us physically but for all eternity you will never be far from us and will always be with us. xxx

It is a horrible disease, but when things are where they are for you it is so very very important to look after yourself. It's not selfish, it is human nature to survive, and you must do that. I won't judge you, far from it, I understand how difficult it is and sometimes the thoughts that come into your head are difficult to comprehend, but don't punish yourself... If you need to get anything off your chest you can call me on .... Thinking of you.

Re: Hi...from another newbie

Thinking of you......hope you have gotten some rest and peace.........and find some time to laugh in the sadness.......laugh and remember the good times.......it isn't easy at all.....but it does help......a psychologist told me once ( and I have since read this) that laughter and tears come from the same energy.......so i usually start off crying....and make myself remember something hilarious and then cack myself......and then I feel much better!! Weird but hope this help!! PA XXX
