Dear Georgia ... My apologies, but I have not been getting the posts through my email since Thursday and just happened to go onto Legacy to see why it was so quiet and shocked at how many have been posting.
Thank for your kind words and I'd love to talk to you privately if you would like. Here is my email: Maday1@shaw.ca
If you have problems contacting me just let me know. I'd love to hear from you. I live just outside of Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, but the heart knows no distance.
Thank you for reaching out, Georgia. I am so sorry for the loss of your beloved husband. When I joined this forum, I did not have time to add to my profile that I have not experienced the horrible loss of my spouse or anyone else due to this awful disease. I work for the Nationa Safety Council in Illinois and we are putting together a project that will bring the stories of people who have suffered the loss of a family member through prescription drug overdose. We want to put faces and stories to this problem to help people better understand the plight of addicts and their families.
I will be thinking of you, Georgis, and rooting for you. Please accept my condolences!
So sorry for your loss Georgia, you have found the right place to come for your grief, I too lost my husband on Feb 9th this year & like your husband he was diagnosed on January 13th & did not even last a month, yet it was not the cancer that took him away, it was a cardiac arrest, I am so thankful I found this site because it has made me understand I am not going crazy & that crying everyday is okay & that family & friends although they care do not understand my grief, but everyone here does, we are unfortunately here for the same reason so I come to the site quite often even just to vent because I know everyone understands.
