tired at times especially when i try to continue to work and keep up the home front with little help..
i know i need to look to friends when i get down in the dumps and this is a good way, but why is this happening all so often??
my kids don't seem to understand at all-- they and husband act like life is fine and i' fine, can't get them to open up or share and they ALL refuse to go to support group or sounselor, so i'm hanging around -- lookin gOK and feeling fair most days but nobody talking about what if i die and how will things be handled and what do the kids need to do before this happens.
kids are almost 10, 16 next week and 18 going into the air force august 2 and 19, 3th year in college this fall.
becky is 16 and never wants to be home, it's too boring and stuff....
frustrated with how to enlighten them without being negative, but being very realistic also...
my husband just says he can't think about life without me and therefore won't talk about it.
but what aobut the kids after i'm gone?? how will he be able to function???
been praying a lot for suggestions and help and hope that these drugs work and that the statistics are wrong but you know one of these days we will all die and we know and have a bit of warning that life may be shorter for us than for others..
there's good points and negative ones about the dx of cancer in this respect.
yes, i'm mostly positive, but also a believer in science and statistics and breast cancer metasisis is a death sentence, it's just a matter of time
i'm very very thankful i can continue my job and my life is mostly normal, i look normal except i've gained 20 pounds and hate the way i look(somebody asked me when i was due last weekend and really threw me for a loop-- i was just beginning to believe i didn't look tto bad with this extra weight))
oh, well better quit, if any suggestions for kids or hubby or family let me know,
thanks a head of time donna g.
