Hi Guys, sorry I have been a bit quite. My mum has just been diagnosed with a terminal illness so I am in a bit of shock. We are very close. I desperately want to lose weight but am just taking things day by day.
Some advice though - my mum was diagnosed with late stage ovarian cancer in or around 2004 - she is still with us and fighting like a trooper. Keep up hope for yourself, but especially for her. Don't give up hope honey
:grouphugg:I am so very sorry and I know what a tremendous shock this must be for you to take in. My heart goes out to you:hug99:
I still remember it like yesterday when my Mum phoned to tell me she had lung cancer, it was mind numbing... she got three years and we made the most of that time she had left never really knowing how long she had just that it was terminal.:cry:
Your right to take it one day at a time and be gentle with yourself.
Thank you so much for all your support and kind words. The diet is out of the window but still in my mind. It makes me angry because she has had such a difficult life and she deserves some happiness. She seems to be taking it with a quiet acceptance and just to enjoy what time she has without any invasive treatment (Doctors said less than a year but what do they know) I wish I could battle for her. I am just making the most of every moment. xx
Hey honey - so sorry to hear your sad news. What a difficult time this is for you and your family. I know its such a shock, I'm sure many of us have received unwelcome news and have fou xxnd the strenght to cope and you will too. I hope both you and your mum have some support. Big hugs to you, sending positive vibes ----->>>>>> xx
