3 days ago · Letting Go of the Past Can be Hard in Cancer Education Center

Sorrow may not last forever, but life after loss certainly is different. I don't think it will ever be the same. I am grateful for the times I spent with my young loved one before she died unexpectedly. It has been over ten years and still I tear up while typing this. There are no words to describe it.

@kimspr3 , I hope you are still there. Please call 911. I don't know what else to say. Except that I couldn't understand how someone could take their own life until a close family member died suddenly. And now I get it.

Dear @daniellemarie,
I am so sorry and echo @georgette12 and @hopeful33250. I have not gone through this, but a close family member of mine has.
She had a beloved pet for many years and that helped her tremendously.
Her church family offers a grief and loss group; she has participated and now leads it (MANY years after her losses).
Also, some of her extended family members have been extremely supportive.
Again, I am so sorry! Children should outlive their parents…

🙁 glad you still have central vision though. Hope you're not planning to kick off any time soon!

Hi Jake,
I take two fish oil pearls each morning and they keep me from having to use eye drops except in the driest weather (December-March in MN). I am not great at preparing food with my eyes open much less closer so that is impressive! Sounds like you would still need to use eye drops (after googling drusen in the fovea–yikes. You've probably already done this, but I'd get in to a macular degeneration specialist's office asap).

I'd like to second @sandij–I take it for dry eyes! 🙂
