Re: [MOL] sounding off

Dear Diana - it's very natural to feel devastated. and low at a time like this - that's not a sign of weakness - it's only human and a natural reaction to this very difficult time in your lives.  I too get really upset sometimes, but then try to shake it off and go forward and think positive and keep the faith.  Know that we're all here to support you and hold your hand as best we're able...take care of yourself. Love. Cori


 dear lillianRodney has cancer in both lungs and brain and probably in the adreanal gland.  He won't eat much of anything because he feels stuffed all the time.  He's very weak and is on oxygen all the time.  He does'nt want to take anymore chemo and no more tests.  I have to respect his wishes.  Diana

Subject: Re: [MOL] sounding offDear Diana: Feeling weak you say?  Dear Heart, caregivers and cancer folks are never weak, infact they are very strong people....sorry to hear about Rodney and you know I understand.  I do the same as Nancy, if I get frustrated I go outside and yell my lungs out and it really works.  What chemo is Rodney on?  Have you thought of Statin Is. Hos.?  Are you doing complementary meds. in support of traditional?  Pls. e-mail me and get me updated friend.  Love you, lillian

Subject: [MOL] sounding offTo anyone,  I need to vent or I will explode.  Rodney went to the oncologist  on Monday and his x-ray showed more cancer showing up in his other lung now.  He was diognosed in May 98 with nsclc.  He also has mets to the brain.  He is so down and so am i.  I feel like I did when we first found out he had cancer devastated.  I don't like feeling like I am not in control.  At work I am learning a new job and with trying to cope with Rodney's illness I just lost it.  I took a few days off work to get myselt settled.  It's so much easier to help someone else than it is youself and I don't like to feel weak.  Diana
