My best friend lost her battle in November, she was more like a sister to me than my own sister, we were at school together and were friends for 30 years. I miss her like crazy and wish I could hear what she is saying to me. My mum is 77 and was diagnosed with cancer about a month before my friend died. I am drained My father in law died in August, my sister is also a recovering alcoholic. Some days I just want to sit in the corner and cry but I can’t, I have to support my partner, my brother, my father, my friends husband I have joined this forum to chat as I’m sure many will understand. Sorry to go on.
