Thanks heaps everyone; it's been 19 months of rough road but for the first time in a long time I can put my mind at ease, at least in regards to cancer. I really appreciate you guys sticking with me through this journey.
I'm so sorry to hear this man. I know how it feels; I lost both my maternal grandfather and paternal grandmother to cancer less than a year apart back in 2017, and my father passed away when I was a teenager. I know there's nothing I can say to make the struggle any easier but just know you have my very best wishes and I'm thinking of you and your family.
Its been abit rough, my family is kinda small (and I dont have much contact with much of the family, apart from my mom/dad and my grandmother).
So ontop of loseing my brother to suicide back in 2017 or so, it now feels like the circle is shrinking. My brother's death was a big blow at the time, I always envisioned myself as a old sod, but atleast I'd have my brother around. Now it looks like it wont be long, and all I'll have left is my mom.
I didn't mean to side track the thread. Its just was it cancer related... and wanted to vent abit.
It's okay man, I hope it helps in some small way to be able to get it out and get some support from us.
I think by the time most of us get to a certain age we've lost people we know to cancer or at least know people close to us who've had it. In spite of all my fears about it, I certainly didn't think it would happen to me in my early 30s. Heck, i always kinda imagined I'd have my Dad around til he was old and grey, before he left us when I was 19. Life throws us tough curve balls.
It still kinda feels surreal to say I've had cancer, and at the same time after 19 months it feels equally surreal to be cancer free. My brain is still adjusting to it all.
Anyway, we're here for you man.
