Re: loosing hope

Hi all, Sorry I have been off the grid recently. I have been round at my dad's a lot and then there is a lot to do with two small children but I wanted to thank you all for your replies. I really appreciate you taking time out of your day to encourage another. It's one of the only beautiful things i...

Re: loosing hope

Thank you Saxon, I do appreciate that you took time to write to me. People's kindness is a comfort and as awful as this is, you are right, I have been blessed with my parents and I realise that some people grow up without a parent or worse. Also I cannot imagine how people feel who are facing this a...

Re: loosing hope

Kerry, Thank you, your words have genuinely given me some comfort. There is such a lot of truth in them. Something that has really helped me is that when my Dad was diagnosed I felt like hardly anyone would understand because I believed that my relationship with my Dad was special but now I realise ...

In particular KeithKerry and toodotty, for their wisdom and bravery - they astound me, and veema have really struck a chord with me as a post she wrote about her Dad could have been written by me. How...

Re: The fight goes on

Hi Annabelle, Thanks for the advice, and I understand about not knowing what to say to others, although I find it helps just to know that I am not alone and if others are strong and positive despite this very difficult diagnosis then it makes me feel like I can be. AS for chasing appointments my Dad...

Re: Husband

Sadly for me, my Dad's isn't operable so I cannot help. However, the nurses on here are really knowledgeable and wonderful. I would ask them but I would also ask the people involved in your husband's care. Make your voice heard and you will either understand and it will allay your fears or you can t...

Re: post deleted

oh I am sorry that this happened to you. I do notice that some posts get more responses than others. Not sure why. I think people gravitate towards hope and treatment cures and that some posts don't get responded to. But I hope that you can post again. you are not alone. x

Re: Just needed some guidance really

I am not sure that anyone can really guide you. It sounds like you are doing a fantastic job supporting your dad and your children, through what is an unbelievably difficult situation. It sounds like you are doing the lions share of the supporting and that must be hard too. I hope that it doesn't co...

We are only starting our Journey, my Dad is 64, I have two small children 2 and 4, and my mum and my dad celebrated their ruby wedding last year and I am their only child. My parents and I are heavily involved in each others lives. I chose my house to be near them. They are constantly popping round,...

Re: The fight goes on

just wanted to say hi, my Dad who is 64 has only recently been diagnosed with this. I haven't posted yet but just wanted to reach out to you and say that I am glad you are staying strong and really hope that you get to that camper van for some quality time.
