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. ♥️

Mara- LOL!

Moth - Sorry about your arm. I think when you get to the point where you are sick of telling people how you broke it that you steal Mae's story and tell someone that you fell while you were rolling skating drunk and enjoy their reaction.

cowgal, that's a good one. When I had chemo 12 years ago and lost my hair, I went into the salon where I had been having my hair cut. I took off my cap, showed my bald head, and asked, "What was in the last shampoo you used on me???" Actually, the guy (whom I refer to as my "hair husband") was the one who buzzed cut my hair before it all fell out. We got a good laugh out of that one.

Wow what a backdrop Dutchiris…hope you and you girls have great memories of that day.

Booboo and Mae you’re both invited to my ‘falling over’ club…. Not always but occasionally when drunk… I’m Scottish…we drink whiskey from time to time and my liver is apparently healthy as of today! Usually I fall over when sober walking in the hills, much to my friend’s and DH’s amusement. Face plants in mud, slipping sideways off boardwalks, tripping on long grass into sheep shit are all in my repertoire!

Hey ladies!

I'm gonna try to keep up. Lol

Moth- sorry about your arm, hope the pain is minimal

I need to try the vinegar thing!

I was in the hospital Monday night. I had extreme stomach pain, unlike anything I've ever experienced. Turns out it was a partial bowel obstruction. Pumped me with antibiotics and morphine for pain. No surgery needed. But I'm still not 100%

My daughter, snl and grandson are heading tonight to Jordan. I'm still a mess over it, but feeling more at peace after crying and praying.

Hugs to everyone 🤗❤

I'm not normally a fainter but I was walking across a carpark and fainted in front of a bus, broke my humerus and knocked out 2 of my front teeth, then my ex did the only useful thing for me in the whole time we were together, he felt the lump in my breast, that was way back in 2013.

Karen, falling into sheep shit sounds absolutely disgusting and I imagine trying to get the clothes and body clean would be difficult without messing up the house as well.

Good luck with your scans Dutchiris, in your pocket all the way with cinnabons or chocolate, whichever you like more.
