Hello. I’m new to the site, looking to find other people that are going through what I am. I have experienced so much stress and grief since 2015. My father passed away in 2015. My Mom passed away Christmas Eve 2016. My husband was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer that spread to his brain in 2017. We were told he had about 18 months to live. He went through brain radiation first and that helped his symptoms then he started on chemo. He did really well until they switched the chemo medication. His body couldn’t take it and there were no other good options so he stopped. He lasted 4 months and then the end of September I could tell his body was losing quickly. His pain was terrible and they were always switching to try to give him some relief. It still amazes me how quickly the end came. Was told he had 2 weeks on a Monday, then on Wednesday we were told wouldn’t make through the weekend. Thursday we were told wouldn’t make it through the night.  Watching him pass was the worst thing I’ve experienced and I will never forget.  He lost his battle on October 4th.  

Its so so quiet in the house and I’m so lonely. I work from home which is a good thing but also not so great. My son comes over a lot now which I love him even more for that.

I’ve lost 3 out of 4 people closest to me and I am just so very sad.

I just read your post and story, and my heart goes out to you. Three losses in as many years is too cruel. I lost the love of my life on October 5th of 2017, and although I stay busy, the loneliness and sadness are with me constantly too.

I’m sending my light and love to you as you make your way on this awful, shared journey. Wishing you peace.

You know what’s also sad?  A new member pouring her heart out looking for some support and getting one response.
