Re: This cruel disease

I’ve just watched your video too Erica and have signed the petition. Your positive attitude never ceases to amaze me. You are an inpiritation to so many. I completely agree about how treatment must start earlier and how this offers hope. I will never forget my dad’s reaction when the consultant told...

Re: Dealing With The Loss

Showing your feelings is not being weak. Sometimes it does our kids good to see we are only human too.
Don’t be so hard on yourself. Be honest with your family and you may be surprised at how they react and how supportive they can be.

Re: Dealing With The Loss

I can relate to much of what you say. I lost my dad in August this year to PC and although his death was expected it hit me like a ton of bricks. My dad was diagnosed in the middle of May and I felt as though I started grieving for him before he passed away. When he passed away I felt relieved and I...

Re: Nano knife for Stage IV PC.

Dear Toodotty, Oh my god - I cannot believe this is happening to you! It’s so unfair. I don’t understand how they can stop your treatment when you’re paying for it. Reading your post has made me so angry and I wish there was something I or someone could do to help. Could an online pertition help? Co...

Re: Nano knife for Stage IV PC.

Toodotty I’m so pleased to hear your treatment went well and even more pleased to hear the last CT did not reflect your current condition. You’ve been so supportive in my threads about my dad and I am in awe of how brave and positive you always are. You’re a pioneer in finding the available treatmen...

Re: Sadness - Update on my dad

I wanted to post an update or I suppose a conclusion to the story of my dad’s struggle with PC. I am sorry to say my dad passed away last night (15th August). The hospice has been amazing and have looked after his physical and emotional needs better than anywhere else could have. It’s hard to believ...

Re: Time

Fairy please don’t feel guilty. The pain of seeing a parent going through this is more than enough to bear and from what you’ve said you can’t of done anymore. I’ve said it before but this disease is cruel and wicked. We can only do our best to support our loved ones each step of the way and take ea...

Re: Time

Fairy I’m so sorry to hear how poorly your mum is. I know the burden of having information and knowledge about the condition and not being able to tell her. I’ve had the same situation with my dad. I googled everything and found out as much as I could all the way along and my mum and dad didn’t want...

Re: Can not believe I’m here again

Arrh - you are definately still in shock. To have this cruel disease take both of your parents is tragic and must be more than you can bear. I know exactly what you mean about the reaction of people in ‘the real world’. I too find that. I find that some of my friends just don’t know what to say and ...

Re: Can not believe I’m here again

I’m so sorry to hear such sad news. You must still be in shock. My dad was diagnosed on May 17th and is currently in a hospice getting weaker as each day passes. I thought his decline had been fast but two weeks for your dad is shocking. My dad spent 10days in hospital before being transferred to th...

Re: Sadness

Thank you Toodotty - you are so incredibly brave. For you to be able to be so thoughtful of your families feelings at a time when you are suffering so much is incredible. My dad was transferred to the hospice this afternoon. We had almost given up hope that a bed would ever become available for him ...

Re: Sadness

Thank you V and Jeni. I think it just hit me last night - I’d been fighting so hard for the last few days trying to get my dad the proper medical care that I hadn’t had time to deal with my own emotions. I think also that when my dad was having chemo we had some hope that he may feel a bit better fo...
