    Hun if you need someone to talk to, i can relate to your pain. I've lost my father to a decade of pain, my grandmother to cancer who was living with me and three children. I know too well what it means loosing a loved one.
    you can pm me anytime you like.

    big hug, granny

    I have lost everyone, accursed with distant sibs and incredibly alone. Mind you I lost both parents when I was far too young to cancer.

    I lost my mom when I was 17. I have survived and survived and survived. What keeps me going now at 45? For one, I'm not incurably depressed, and importantly--I do not have a fixation on suicide. I see that a lot. And another thing still, I love to write and I see things critically. Am very curious and begun learning philosophy a few years back.

    If you want to dig deeper, just shoot me a PM. I am not sure what you're looking for but my mind and heart are open.

    I lost my father when I was 7 to cancer. He was only 26. So I can definitely relate. You can send me a pm whenever you need/want to talk.

    I didn't lose anyone to cancer, but I watched my father's health slowly deteriorate from age 7 to 16 when he died. From about age 9 and on, everytime my dad went into the hospital, my mom & I braced ourselves for his possible death. By the time he finally passed away, we more relieved than anything. No more pain for him, because I always saw it in his face when I visited him.
