My husband was diagnosed with metastatic melanoma in Nov. of 2010 and had to have a brain tumor removed in Dec. 2010; we are in our early 40's and have been married for 21 years. I never thought we would end up here at this time in our lives. We have 3 wonderful children, not kids anymore, oldest is 20 and the youngest is 16. Last summer we were given a shot at hope with a "miracle "drug called Zolbraf and it was working, kicking ass and taking names with the tumors he had. Now, it has stopped working. Just like that, "poof" not killing the cancer anymore. I know I should be grateful for the time we have been given, but I just feel cheated and pissed off!! He was always my big, strong hubby, never and I mean never sick, and then this crap. He keeps talking about me finding someone else when enough time has gone by and it makes me want to vomit!!! I don't want someone else, I want him. Friends and family are upset that I don't want to get on the phone and "chat" about how I feel, how he feels, how my kids feel. How do they think we feel?!!?!? I know they just want to help, but it gets annoying; they have no idea what this is like. Then I feel like a witch because I don't get on the phone with them.
CANCER SUCKS!!! Why is it we can put some stupid robot on Mars and we can't cure this crappy monster that beats that hell out of people and robs us of our loved ones?!?!!?!?!?
Just needed to vent, Angie
