Died and came back my experience

I have been recently diagnised with stomach cancer. This doesn't directly have anything to do with cancer but in a indirectly way it does I was a electrician and back in 2001 my company had been contracted to wire a department store. Well like most companies money was the main topic and employee safety was not the top concern (even though they acted like it was).

Did hiking help anyone else with grief?

My mom was diagnosed with leukemia (AML) and fought for a year and a half before suc***bing to the disease in 2008. It will be 8 years this fall and I still struggle every day from it. We had an amazing mother/daughter relationship and we did everything together. One activity that recently helped me was taking a hike by myself in Alaska (inspired in part by Cheryl Strayed’s book where hiking helped her deal with the loss of her mother). It was the first time in a long time I had felt happy and at peace.

Should I sue my doctor

Hi Gang,

It's been awhile, but looking for opinions. Should I sue my husband's doctor ? There was an obvious mistake. I'm out of the widow fog now and can handle the conversation.  My lawyer saids the hosptial will drag my husbands name through the mud. Imply he was a alcholic or smoker or had stress issues, (aka acid reflux). What a mean hospital.

Loss of my husband, my best friend

My husband, Rick was diagnosed on November 25 or 26 of 2014. He had throat cancer due to smoking according to doctors. He was sent to treatment and had issues with the center. Then in February 14th of 2015, on our anniversary, he had to be hospitalized. He was having difficulty swallowing and breathing. They did an emergency tracheostomy the next day and then on Wednesday, the 18th, he had his lower set of teeth removed and a PEG tube inserted. He was not happy. He fought and fought hard. He had many complications that nobody would address.

Grieving and scared

Hi. This is my first time to post. I'm 58 years old, and my 57 year old husband passed away Nov. 30 after fighting cholangiocarcinoma for 18 months. I thought I was doing ok; I think I did a lot of grieving during those 18 months, as it became clear that E was not going to get better. But today I'm a mess, can't stop crying and afraid. Though I work, it's not for the salary, but the health insurance.  My husband always managed the bills, insurance and taxes, bc he liked to and I hated it.

With the holiday season upon us, how do you deal with the lost of your loved one and one that has been a part of your life for 55 years?  I just lost my husband 4 months ago to this horrible beast called cancer and I do realize that the first holiday is the hardest they say.  My youngest son and his family want me to come to their home for Thanksgiving but I just don't feel like I can and enjoy the season without my husband but then again I don't want to be alone.

How do those that have been thru this already handle it?

Everything seems so overwhelming

I lost my husband of 24 years on the 23rd of October, 2015.  He had colon cancer with mets to the liver.  All the time frames we were given were wrong.  They originally told us he would have around 3 -4 years.  He had eighteen months.  Even when he went into palliative care, they gave him three months.  He lasted barely six weeks.  At the end, he was given way to much hydro-morphine and he died of respiratory depression.  That will haunt me forever.   He had been so afraid of dying a painful death, and that is exactly what he got.
