Hi @Ariel1124‍ - I am sorry you are strongly. My husband has lung cancer and I have seen how hard it impacts him physically, emotionally, and mentally. 

I am sorry you are going through this and feel like you have nobody to talk to, not even your husband. I do not know how you can be expected to be happy all the time and be positive when you are going through cancer.

What type of cancer do you have and how are you holding up with treatments and health wise?

Try not to stress and talk to us here and join a local support group in your area, because you do not need stress right now.

Hope to hear from you soon and sending a hug.

Stage 3 cervical it's in part of my stomach now.  So I'm trying to make peace with the fact I'm probably not escaping this pickle.  I am relieved to hear from you on this particular day im waiting for more results to see how things are progressing. I'll be praying for you guys. You are a wonderful person you know.  I know it's hard on you too try to remember even super woman needs a break sometimes. 

Sending you hugs too

I hv a question I have had symptoms and hv a biopsy scheduled but I was having post menopausal bleeding, nausea and bad stomach pain for 2 weeks but all of that has completely stopped. Is this good news or normal for endometrial cancer?

Have you gone to the doctors? I would also recommend to search for what you had to see what pops upon the internet

I understand. My husband doesn't get it - he thinks I sleep too much. I just found out I have endometrial cancer, skin pre-cancer. We are also doing a biopsy of my stomach. I have two boys. He thinks I should be ok and buck up... I just found out like 2 days ago...

When I was diagnosed with breast cancer two years ago, after surgery and radiation  and a partial mastectomy, my girlfriend told me to get over it already.  As if the whole experience magically disappears.  You really need someone who is willing to listen.  Reach out to me if you want to talk.  I promise I will not roll my eyes!  I wish there was more I could do to help women go through this crap.  And it is crap.

@Ariel1124 

 Loneliness is so awful.  I think that part of this cancer thing is stepping into a story that doesn't seem to make sense!  There are so many people who absolutely don't understand cancer-especially if they have never had cancer.  I will be your friend if you need to talk.  I'm looking for support groups to find more individuals who are dealing with the same illness.  Have you tried that?   You've got a friend in me:)

@Ariel1124 I feel the same way. Like I am alone in this. I also have stage 3 cervical and mine did not respond to treatment and it spread. I am now doing a different chemo to see if it gets rid of the new tumors. I really don't think it will happen. I have no family and my boyfriend of 3 years is no help at all. To the point where I am thinking of breaking up with him and focusing on me. That said please know that I am here for you and you are not alone.

Cancer can be tough - at whatever stage/treatment you are dealing with. I get so tired of people asking if I am a cancer survivor. And my husband wants to know when I am getting back to normal. Well I found out I have this genetic cancer syndrome which makes me high risk for some scary cancers - colon, ovarian, stomach, etc and have lifelong screenings and more future surgeries. My uterus and everything but my ovaries are out and I am still 8 weeks since surgery and trying to get back some energy and some days are much harder than others. I got into a big fight with my husband and told him he needs to be more supportive and it takes more than a few weeks to heal. We will see if he comes around.
