I'm supporting my husband with his stage 3 inoperable lung cancer. Recently they told him there is no point in carrying on with chemo because it is causing more harm than good and it didn't even shrink the tumours. He was also told no to radiotherapy. I go to work everyday, look at my happy colleagues and feel worse. Of course I'm not wishing they are in my position but I just wish I were as happy as they are. The sound of their constant laughter sends me to tears and It feels so lonely with very few people understanding what we are going through. Roy Castle is the only place where I don't feel that way. Thank you for giving us the chance to express our feelings with no inhibitions and no judgement.
I'm sure that I'm not the only one who wants to know how can we make things bearable. There are people who tell you to try and have good memories while you can but how can you go past the fear and the agonizing sadness inside? there are people who tell you to go on holiday but they forget that one income doesn't stretch that far and even if you put it on the credit card, the travel insurance quotes are so high it makes it impossible!!!
