3 losses in 4 months

by Amy
(Bowling Green, KY)

My 65 yr. old "healthy" dad started having some back pain last summer. He was diagnosed with liver cancer with bone metastasis in August 2010. He died October 10, 2010. My grandmother who has always been my best friend died January 20, 2011 after a 1 1/2 yr. struggle with congestive heart failure. During that time I took care of my grandfather, taking him to doctor and doing things for him every day. He died February 10, 2011, with bone cancer. He was buried on my birthday, February 12. When my grandparents died, I was mad that my dad wasn't there for me. I feel like an orphan. My life turned upside down. I feel like an orphan. This is so hard. I get so mad that they all left me.

Amy, so very sorry to hear of your all your losses. I too just lost my best friend, my aunt, three weeks ago due to liver cancer. She is the only person I choose to remain in contact with on my side of the family for the past five years. She was like a mother to me as I don't associate with my own for several reasons. She had previous breast cancer and then it came back as liver cancer. She found out at stage IV and died not even a month later. I saw her suffer horribly and am grateful she is now in the best of company. It all happened so quickly and violently that I'm still trying to grasp it all.

I am just heart broken and feel my husband totally doesn't understand. He's so used to me being tough most of the time that I feel he expects me to just move on. I feel such incredible pain and I have no tolerance for anything right now, including my husband...been fighting a lot with him as well.

I can relate to feeling alone and though I know it will get better for us, it's not an easy road and I just wish I knew how long this stage was going to last. The only comfort I truly feel is my faith in God.

I just wanted to let you know you are not alone and somehow we will manage all this. Thoughts and prayers to you!
