Aug 17, 2012 · Having to deal with a loved one passing from cancer in Cancer

Thank you so much babs. Yes it is exremely hard for me. All I have is an older brother and we aren’t very close, of course I have my father and we have never really been that close either because I have just always been closer to my Mom. I remember My father always yelling at me when I was young and he had a bad temper and I never really developed a relationship with him. I am devastated to lose my Mom and when I miss her or just need to talk to her(I used to call her everyday on the phone) when I feel like I want to pick up the phone to call her but realize I can’t because she isn’t there I just talk out loud to her, I miss her dearly and I think I am handling this situation better than I expected, I start to think of her and get sad again. A few days ago I broke down in tears just thinkin about things we used to do and will never get to do again, or how she won’t get to buy my 16 month old daughter clothes or toys off of ebay anymore. And I look at things she bought me or my daughter and get sad. I even saw an Olive Garden commercial on tv one night and started crying because that is where we used to go out to dinner alot as a family. I might need to talk to someone. I will look around at local churches in my community. Thanks again. And I am sorry for your losses as well.

Thank you so much. I am trying to live each day as best as I can. It is very hard not having my Mother here with me. It is still so weird.Yes I want to be here for my daughter. I need to carry on the life of my Mother and tell my daughter all about her. I went to a clinic to get a Pap smear but they don’t do anyother kind of check ups but gave me a refferal to a place that does so I plan on making an appointment there to get a full check up and tell them my family history and to get checked to make sure I am okay. I also plan on trying to eat better and to do more exercising. I appreciate all of your thoughtful words and advice. Please feel free to comment again and give anymore advice you feel I need. Any help I can get is well appreciated.

I am constantly worrying. I loved my Mother so much and i love my daughter like my Mother loved me. I want to see her grow up into a beautiful woman.

I forgot to mention also I have gas all the time, bloating, sometimes it is painful when I push down on my stomach ( i was trying to examine myself) and for the past couple weeks I have had these annoying pains kinda like cramps in my lower abdomen(where my uterus is). And I ended my period a week ago. And along with that for the past couple months I would say i have had this foul odor in my discharge. It is okay after I shower but then a few hours later it starts smelling again. I don’t know if it is a yeast infection or something worse. I am just a worry wart about everything.

Hi joanneo, I get sad every now and then because I miss my Mother but my daughter keeps me busy most of the time. Thank you for asking.

Thank you joanneo you could be right. I have a Dr appointment to get a pap smear because I haven’t had one since i was pregnant and that was a couple years ago, When I go in I will tell them everything and I wrote down a list of concerns that I have so I can be checked out for everything. I haven’t had a physical ever and with my parents both having type 2 diabetes, my dad having high blood pressure and high cholesteral I need so get looked at. while I was pregnant I had gestational diabetes and they told me there was a chance I could get type 2 diabetes after the baby was born. And i don’t exactly eat the healthiest. I still think i am living as a kid and could eat anything i want. I don’t get much exercise and I occasionally have fatigue and migraines, Also what concerns me is that for about a few years off and on I have noticed blood after having a bowel movement and sometimes it is hard to go. Actually the very first time I noticed it was in 2001 and I was only 19 at the time so I kinda shrugged it off as being hemmorhoids. But it still happens and now i am worried. And since the drs didn’t know if my moms cancer started in her colon I need to know that I don’t have colon cancer.

Also for a couple months I have noticed while I sleep I get this tickle in the back of my throat that makes me have to cough. It is only every now and then. I looked up symptoms of throat cancer and sometimes I wheez, sometimes my voice will be raspy, i don’t have weight loss and I don’t have a sore throat unless I get sick and i don’t have ear pain or difficulty swallowing so maybe i don’t have it. Should i still get checked? I almost feel like going to the doctor and having myself checked to rule out every single cancer there is just to be safe. Since my Mom didn’t go get checked often and she didn’t even know she had cancer, I want to be sure I am okay. I don’t want to leave my little girl.
