yes my mum died of cancer. I didn't live with my mum she let bad things happen from 5 to 10 years old. I went into care at 10years old. mum cared and loved my other brothers and sisters but not me. she passed away in 2008 and nobody told me till 2011.
I've have not been to mum's grave yet!! Carnt bring myself to go. I loved my mum but hated her for what she did. and let happen. it's 15/09/2014. still not gone.
I don't know what to do??

What I did is visit places that I did with the one I loved..I remember the good times. I also went to consulting as well...There are free meet and greet were you meet people who are in the same situation as you...you dont have to talk. You can sit and listen. It helps.

My wife past away in 2010.

My dad has cancer.

So sorry. My father had cancer. It is very difficult as you already know. The difficulty for me was just not knowing what to say so we ended up talking very little about what he was feeling, his hopes, and fears, his wishes, etc. instead we talked about the weather, some current news story or other 'normal' conversation. Nothing was normal but it was just a case of trying to ignore the cancer in hopes it would go away.
