Dear John, what you are experiencing is very normal, my darling father fought his battle with throat cancer with such strength & he never complained, we were told so many conflicting stories from the medical team, one day I would be over the moon with happiness the next day I would be a complete mess, I would never let dad see me upset & I was the Rock for my whole family. My dad was in hospital for 5 months due to so many complications with his surgery.When dad passed away we were all there & I completley fell apart. I had to take extended time off work because I was very close to a breakdown.I guess what I am saying is, being a carer is a very hard role, we need to gather strength when we feel we have none left. This site is great, you can blog about anything, it's great to get it off your chest.

Hi Star, I can tell you that it is not just you feeling this way, I lost my beautiful father on 06.02.12, he was my rock & I never thought he would leave me,I too felt so alone, I felt that nobody understood what I was going thru, being on this site really helps, you can post anything that you are feeling & nobody will judge you.

Cancer Council NSW would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we live and work.We would also like to pay respect to elders past and present and extend that respect to all other Aboriginal people.
