I have stage 3 mouth cancer for sure and need tests to see if it's spread to lymph nodes ect. every day I try to forget , but it's like a nightmare I can't wake up from or actually get any help with. I have a phobia of needles and hospitals which Is making it extremely difficult to face it, I just want it to be over, looking for support because I can't get it from my family, they just try to run my life w.o. my say, I don't want them to make decisions for me when they need to be made by myself, but I'm at a loss on how to approach it, so I decided to look for support else where. I will check for replies every few days
Hi, so sorry about your diagnosis. I know the shock and anxiety when you first get the news of cancer. Maybe you can ring the cancer council and get support from them. They are really helpful and kind. Do you have friends who will support you if your family is not helping you with what you need? Will keep you in my thoughts and prayers 🙏💕 Linda G
Thanks for the support and no, I don't have friends I can count on, I told them, but they just don't seem to get it, one of them tried to move out with me ... I'm tired of waking up with my heart pounding with " is this the day" going through my mind, I never thought it would be so emotionally exhausting.
Hi @Deadalready88 ,
I'm very sorry to hear about your stage 3 mouth cancer.
I know that I'm a bit late in responding to you, but I just wanted to check in with you and see how you are .
How is your treatment going?
I know it can be tough when the people around just don't know how to respond when they find out have cancer. Unfortunately is quite common.
Anyway, hope to hear from you soon.
