I feel cheated by cancer

It's been 10 months since my husband, John, passed away. I am so thankful that he's not coping with Covid-19 as well as leukaemia. His immune system was very compromised & if he was here at this time it would be so difficult for him. My heart goes out to all that are trying to cope at this time.

We had so many plans to go off in our campervan & I feel cheated that we don't get to do that now. It may sound selfish but I mean cheated for both of us.  There are many pictures of our adventures together I look at but I can't help thinking it should have been more. So it's probably times of being thankful & cheated but always missing you John.

Re: I feel cheated by cancer

Hi Linda

I feel terribly sorry for you loosing your husband. This cancer road is absolutely horrid. My father has only days if not hours left of life. He was diagnosed in October 2019 with pancreatic cancer and watching him deteriorate rapidly before our eyes has been the absolute worst. I’m very worried also how my mum is going to cope. I have no advice to give but I just wanted to let you know I am thinking of you.
