As I go through this forced path I have been thrown down, I have come to realize the love I have always had for my husband was strong. He is amazing and I love him with my very soul and entire heart. Never would I ever imagine the thought of dying and him being alone. Then the worst part hit me!! I can't seem to shake the horrible sorrow of thinking of another woman taking my place in his life and his heart, and if I Am honest his bed. He is my best friend and the love of my life, I would never need another for any reason. He makes my life complete, and then this happens. How do I process that I most likely won't be the one growing old on the porch that we have talked about, how do I process, someone else sitting in that chair? I hate this trajectory path I've been spun onto, and everyday I feel grief and deep sorrow. How do I live everyday knowing in the back of my mind, I feel like a place holder, for another woman who will be stepping into my life when I die of this horrible disease, more sooner than later. Why would I even want to take any medicines or treatments, when the answer is pretty obviously in front of my face.? Why do we fight so hard for something we cannot control ? Why do we hurt so badly thinking about letting go, or giving up? It's a four letter word that holds so much power. That word is LOVE..... If you have ever felt this way. Share with me, because I understand, I feel this way everyday. I also don't know what to do with the sadness of loss or how to process the process of dying. However slow or fast it may be. Please share your love stories with me, how did you meet? How long together? I want to know your stories, everyone has their person. Everyone loves.....tell me about your family, your friends, your life too, as if this was your living room. ♥️

We are team FU cancer (Named by Parry, our sweet sister) and this is our Lol pub and living room. Welcome, put your feet up and just be you!

Moomala - I am sorry that happened to you, I agree totally uncool to repeat things that are said in the sanctity of Mel's living room. You should feel free to share and most people's mouths don't always behave that's why we put our foot in them. Try not to feel too uncomfortable its the person who repeats a comment that should feel badly. A hug for you from me and I think you are awesome.

dutchiris, I don't think you can really distinguish between fatigue, laziness and just tired. I know I can't tell when it happens to me. The only thing I can tell is if I am truly exhausted to where I cannot do anything. The other things you mention are interchangeable and all feel similar. Hopefully today is easier and may you get off this weekend on call and get some proper rest.

If having a respectful discussion is a tornado then wow. Everyone has a right to voice their opinions do they not? As long as it's respectful which I feel we both were unlike last time which I apologized for. It's ok for everyone before me to voice it but not me because my thoughts are with some others who isn't the same as some here. I'm a debater by nature especially for those who are afraid to voice their thoughts. It's not mean if it's done respectfully without foul words or darts thrown at the other person. I appreciate learning what may be my future over there. I've always had a morbid fascination of what near death, dying is like for those facing it now. Weird I know.

On that note, have a good holiday season. I really do wish everyone the best whether our styles and beliefs are different or not. Peace.

my reference to a tornado in my living room was because the thread blew up and I had not even a clue there was a huge debate here for no reason that I could see.

Moomala~I'm sorry someone would take your words... it's happened to me. I know how that feels. I want this to be a place where we have a family who genuinely care for each other and it can honestly feel like a relief to read each other's words and feelings. Stage four sucks we know it's like a black hole maybe we peek our head up once in a while and have a string of good days. Mine are quite emotional lately. I cry at the drop of a hat. I wanted to give you a hug lovely woman.

Mara~ as always level headed and honest. Thank you for that!

Candy~ Hi darlin. So icy here today my little old gramps dog took a spill and now we have a limper. Glad dh was here to help don't know what i would have done.

Giddy upgirl~ Hi there sweetheart, hope Gracies tree can withstand old man winter. We are getting some snow first time this season... all I can say is yuck!

Saw a lot of new names here, I want to go backand welcome them on a different tone and note. I hope they know their words mean a lot.

Now.... Artista....where do I begin? I agree last time didn't go too well, lost some friends over it actually. Now I find you here again and I for the life of me canT seem to understand your tone towards me, or this thread. I haven't said word one to you or about you in anyway at all. I even went as far as leaving the steam room, because that was your new space from what I could see. I didn't want issues. I felt like you came here ready for a brawl of some sort and I just want nothing to do with that. I am struggling everyday to keep my sanity in check as I watch sisters around me dying. Some I still don't know about. What happened to them. So please, for the sake of everyone, every stage, every life . Let's just let it all go and be who we are with respect first, just simply because the same thing drew us all to BCO, stupid ass cancer.

I apologize Mel. I thought since I know you don't like me that I was dorothy here. I agree cancer sucks ass. We all have our shit. I try to respect other views if I don't agree. I didn't come here to brawl. By the time I saw it here plenty had posted about it already with their thoughts. I wasn't planning on getting involved since it's not my biz but how can you not respond to how you feel? We all do. Runor and I seem to be similar in that we both like to explore stuff, ask questions, try to figure stuff out, what's the underlying thing going on. We may not agree but if it's done with respect I see no harm.

I hope this ongoing every few years about the stage 4 only stuff finally ends. It's obvious most stage 4 like it the way it is. I know there are people who would love to speak up that are scared to and not just in this instance. That's sad for a board like this. I feel anything can be discussed if it's done with respect and not with knives. Let's move on from this topic as it's obviously a toxic one. Peace.

Hi Mel: just wanted to pop back in to say thank you just for being you. I am sorry you are having weepy days, they suck just like the cancer that causes them does. My nana always said having a good cry was a good way to wash out your eyes so you could see better. We're having some nasty asty weather here too and Yuck is right. I am taking care of the tree and wrapping it in burlap to keep it warm through the sucky winter weather. Take care stay warm and am sending you a warm cosy hug because some days we all could really use one.

Who the hell is Dorothy?

Giddyup, if you come nose to nose with a moose you better have something bigger than a .22 in your hand! We recently had a moose get tangled in our fence. Busted off posts, ripped down great stretches of wire, fencing staples flying in every direction. What wasn't ripped down was stretched into a mass of tangled junk and the corner post was yanked clear out of the ground and deposited 6 feet away from its post hole. Scared the shit out of the horse who changed his usual position by the gate to the furthest corner of the pen, to avoid large, lumbering things that come crashing out of the bush in the dead of night. I'm just glad I wasn't out there when it happened because I usually go out to feed the horse between 10 and midnight. What a great way to go. "Runour survived breast cancer but was trampled by a horse as it ran away from a moose" Way to go, Runor.

Okay Runor we gotta start a very sardonic comic strip. Here's one for you was moving a house today it blew out of the truck and into the ditch so we had to hold it up in the middle of the ice storm while they got a bigger truck. So my line would be Giddy survived bc only to have a house fall on her - which may make me a wicked witch. Maybe Dorothy was the one on her way from Kansas to see the Wizard. Enjoy the night and take a flashlight so you can see which way the horse is going to run and I'm definitely getting a bigger gun.

Lmao who is Dorothy? Lol

Artista~I never once said I didn't like you btw. Sometimes people Don't agree, but I don't even know you, so for me to not like you, would be kind of shallow and childish. I'm Sorry if you felt I didn't like you. I am just brutally honest sometimes and from the looks of it, so are you. So I can relate. I actually have not seen you post here other than in a circumstance that isn't all that great. Maybe that's why you assumed I didn't like you.

Mel, I cannot imagine you being unkind to anyone. I agree, I have not seen Artista around unless there was something going on. I would imagine she would be welcomed on a routine basis though. Not sure though.

I am having a quiet day, just getting lunch ready, just a beef burger patty with nacho cheese melted on top. No bun. I may walk to the store later as I am quite bored. No appointments til Wednesday and I don't even have laundry to do. Then I will see about watching a movie on the treadmill. May watch Brittany runs a Marathon on the prime. Not shopping today as I do not need anything. Got birthdays to shop for. DB on 6th, SIL on 7th and nephew on 8th too. Have to check what they would like.

Have a good week Artista.

Mel, the burger was good. The other thing I do that people would probably hate is that I cook it in the microwave. I don't have a grill and not enough room in my kitchen. Oven burners are too slow to heat. I find that they work well when I cook them for 7mins on medium-high. Then I take a paper towel and mop up any grease. They are already seasoned and make simple meals, whether I eat them like a burger or grind up cooked patty in my chopper and use as ground beef. Super yummy I must say since I most definitely do not consider myself a good cook. The only thing I would say I am good at is movie theater popcorn. Not with butter but buttery flavor coconut oil and flavacol sprinkled on after popping. I love this stuff too. Good thing I get regular echoes for the types of food I like.

Omg 😱 deliciousness has come out of that bad boy. It just everything has so much prep work. That’s what I can’t stand. He says he loves to cook for me. He leaves me cakes and soups, stews etc for the week. It helps tremendously, or honestly I wouldn’t eat. I would just snack like a bird.

Mel, your DH sounds like my brother. He is the cook of his family. SIL can make a mean perogi but I am not sure they eat those anymore. They go to the gym more and watch their diets plus their sons are both adults and working. They don't often have many people over nowadays which I miss but totally understand at the same time. They visit me about once a week and usually bring a donut and hot chocolate. My butt does not need them but I do enjoy it all the same.

Hi all, snowing heavily here in Manhattan...it's a quiet and slow day here as well, as I psychologically and physically get ready for the outcome of tomorrow's Pet scan...it's been six months since my last one.

I've been mostly pain free, and Doxil has been relatively easy, but as we all know lack of pain doesn't mean anything....in a few days we'll find outwhat's new and exciting...

I used to love to cook...but these days I'm making last minutes choices which mean mostly sandwiches...I'm going through a wintery carb feast...can't even look at anything green and crispy...can't be anywhere near anything sweet since I lack self control...sugar is my addiction so I still concoct low-carb, sugar free desserts....I use stevia as a sweetner...

mo left town..like everyone else, she's attending the San Antonio Symposium....

Micmel, thanks for the roll call! LOVE shortbread cookies!! And with coffee is even better!!! Yummy!! I’m still suffering with this damn siatic pain, having another injection on the 13th. Living on Percocet which barely takes the edge off. So frustrated and unable to do much. My husband and grown kids are awesome, cooking, laundry and even put up my Xmas decorations. Hubby wrapping everything cause it hurts to even do that. A friend is going to lend me a transport wheelchair so I can get out a little bit. I can walk but not far without pain, this way I can get to the mall. If I want to look at something I can get up and look at it but can ride from one store to another. I think of you all and pray for all of us dailt

Hi Lynnwood~ I am sorry that your sciatica is giving you problems. I know that cannot be easy with so much that your mind thinks should be done. I honestly have like stocking stuffers and maybe three small presents . I'm Giving my grown kids money and a few gifts for each of them. Will kick my Budget badly for the month but what can I. Say. Every year I promise I'm going to start early but. Never do. This year I'm Cutting back. My DD's car has taken a last ride, so we are looking for a new one, which when used or not can be stressful. Nothing like a lil ole thing like money to mess everything up. It's crap.

hello friends! I got roll called whoooohooo 😃 🤗 ❤️ !!! love it!!

I have had a somewhat lazy day. Stomach slightly off and mild headache for past couple of days and so I made a big pot of chicken soup which is sitting well so far. I’m just a little off. I am laying low - made it to my check-in appt at the oncology psychiatrist - they are the ones who prescribed me the lexapro I am on. The psychiatrist was 40 minutes late!! I was just about to leave when she showed up - she’d been at her own doctors appointment. I don’t know why she neglected to call the front desk and let them know? I was annoyed!! I know these things can happen but it wasn’t handled so well. Then I cried through the whole appointment. I am not sure why 🤷🏽♀️?? Maybe it was the annoyance and not feeling so hot today? Maybe I needed to cry?? I was surprised by my own tears that surfaced. Unexpected! Funny darn emotions!

Anyway - my heart goes out to everyone who is suffering and in pain today. Lynnewood I am sending you lots of love. Is the sciatica a complication from bone Mets or a separate issue?

Love to all,

Philly

Healing thoughts going out to all those in pain or otherwise under the weather. Hope you feel better soon.

Sitting here crying and sniffling because of the show The Good Doctor. The actor who plays Shawn is so good. This show never fails to make me cry. Such a good show. I don't mind crying because of a TV show because it usually means a very good episode.
