"((HUGS)) to you Tammy S. though our stories are not quite the same, parts feel the same and I feel your struggles. My DH was diagnosed in 2005 with Stage III Colon Cancer. (We fell in the anything that could go wrong…"
"I "coped" with it all (sort of) as I always do in crisis mode and got through it so very thankful that we didn't get more damage. The problem is it isn't ending, nothing seems to be getting resolved or getting fixed. I…"
"10 weeks now and it seems like it only gets harder. I had so much hope a month ago that I can't find now. Very hard to imagine it will get better. I hate this mind set I am in right now and yet I can't shake it off no…"
