Re: bri's progress

Hi Laura - wonderful news! As has already been said, you have always been such a pillar of strength to others and Brian's progress a source of great hope to everyone. I can't believe that it's been nearly 3 years since I first came onto the forum - seems like yesterday. We are all forever bound toge...

Re: Interested in a West Midlands Support Group?

Hi Laura - how lovely to hear from you! I am doing well thank you. Lots of upheaval at the moment. I came to the decision during the Summer to move house - seems finally to be the right time. It is something we, as a family had talked about a lot, but then Gary became ill and then it was hard to thi...

Re: My mom

Hi Ellie First of all, congratulations on graduating - hope the ceremony went well today and that you have lots of photos as a treasured record of an amazing achievement.

Re: hello

Thank you everyone for your kind words. It is so lovely to have a place to put down thoughts, safe in the knowledge that you will be supported and find people who truly understand.

Re: hello

Hi Louie Thought I would reply as we seem to be on the same page, as it were. I too have found it difficult to read posts and "selfishly" retreated, knowing that I was probably of little use to anyone. It has been great, however, to see lots of new members on the forum, all of whom are giving quite ...

Re: my husband of 2 weeks with weeks to live

So, so sorry to hear your story, Mandy. My husband was also just 46 when this hideous disease took him but I had much more time to come to terms with what was to happen so cannot imagine how you must be feeling - my heart aches for you. I hope you have family and friends around you at this awful tim...

Re: Too quick

I understand how you feel - the great sense of loss and the guilt that life carries on. It can be quite surreal sometimes can't it? Everything you are feeling is quite normal and all part of the awful process that is bereavement. Life takes on new meaning when you have lost a dearly loved one and I ...

Re: bri's progress

Let us know how you get on, Laura, won't you? Don't like to hear that you are not feeling well. Def a good idea to get checked out, especially if it is making you feel down mentally - we all know how important it is to remain psychologically strong and positive. xx

Re: Too quick

Dear Treacle So very sorry to hear of your Dad's passing and how quickly and cruelly this has happened. You must feel absolutely devastated and undoubtedly still in shock. It will take you some time to come to terms with what has happened but know that if you need a place to share your feelings, you...

Re: Money off Gas & Elec bills ! !

Hi Linda - thank you for being the researcher on everyone's behalf! I'm wondering whether the fact that anyone diagnosed with a terminal illness is entitled to Disability Living Allowance (that is still correct isn't it?) covers any additional living expenses such as heating. I agree, when Gary was ...
