Lost my dad 102 days from diagnosis to death
(New brunswick Canada)
Received word that my father, a father of 12 children and husband of 57 years had inoperable lung cancer that had spread to his liver. I took a leave from work after the news that chemo was not effective. He went downhill very quickly. He provided for everyone. He was very strong willed and generous. A huge business success that he left in the hands of my very capable brothers.
My mother is not a stable figure. He kept her mental health in check as much as he could but without him she can be quite difficult and hard to be around. I'm afraid ill never want to go there because I don't enjoy her company. She's just not someone I trust and i hate that I feel this way. It took a long time to realize why I felt this uncomfortable feeling with her and always sidestepped it when dad was alive
