Re: soothing the mind helpful insights appreciated

All of the other posters have given great suggestions. I guess the one thing is time. I remember at the start I was obsessed with this disease, investigating, researching, listening, learning, dreaming ... It was all encompassing and exhausting.. With time I am now fully aware of my dilemma but I do...

Re: O/T … I hesitate to post this

Regardless of what I do or do not believe this is the reason I have not posted of late. My beliefs are my business, no one else's. The supportiveness between us has diminished to a point where it is no longer useful to use the board. There has been a lot of loss of late and that tears me up ... Mayb...

Re: An open message to no one in particular

I know myself sometimes I have a dire need for support and other times I try to be the support for others. Some days I want to participate in the board and others I nee...

It was so good and I felt the best I have felt in the past 18 months. Got the results of the nose excision and benign so g...

Re: How do you tell a 5 year old daddy's girl that her daddy is dieing?

Hi, I feel so much your pain at what you are going through and the impact on your little girl. I had a similar situation when my eldest son was on palliative care at age five and my youngest was three and a half. My younger son had seen his brother sick many times but this time questioned as to when...

Re: Hey--What's up with NED Posters?

IMO .... It doesn't matter whether you have Stage, I,II, III, IV, or if you have it now or had it a hundred years ago .... Whether you have it, or your a caregiver. We are all either living or have lived it ... This forum is about 'friends', about getting through, about those that get it ...... And ...
