My dog passed away before my eyes, she had a massive heart attack.
Thank God it was me not the wife or child.
I am heart broken :(

Hey guys, we are not natural allies in the big knockabout world of PR, but I understand where you are at and know you can / will emerge from the other side of this stuff. Go well.
Thanks. I've learned to live with constant exhaustion and flashbacks but just feeling guilt, anger etc is harder. I have suicidal thoughts myself almost every day for years and fairly regularly that will push over into ultimate hopelessness where I start making plans. I've not tried to go through with anything though, it would kill my mother for a start. I'm just screaming into the void, I don't really want sympathy I'm just lonely right now and have nowhere to unload, I don't care if I'm trolled over it. I wouldn't put it up here if I did.
Hey AND_y, we have had our differences on here but I’m really sorry to hear of your troubles. You will get trolled over many things on this bored but this thread is a safe space and we are all here to support you in any way we can. Unload your problems. You are not alone and you have somewhere to unload.

Y'know what Winnie there isn't actually anything anyone can say to me on here that would hurt me so seeing as you're willing to let me use you as a punching bag you can do the same right back to me. :lol:

I held my dog while the vet injected her and she died in my arms. The vet let me leave by the back door, as I was crying my eyes out. Still brings a tear to my eye if I think about it and that was twelve years ago.

Starting place with PTSD if it creeps up is that it’s just a chemical thing going on and it will pass/wash out.

You are definitely not alone in this, my friend, but if my journey into alcoholism and the ongoing recovery has taught me anything, it is this: there is no hurt you have inflicted on people you love that can not be undone through honesty and love. My three grandchildren are a living testimony to that. Please try to stop beating yourself up this way.

Sorry for coming on here and writing my feelings again, but, it does help to get it out. Wife is in bed and I`m by myself, Burst into tears again after thinking about yesterday, when my wife asked me what coins are these? She didn`t know the difference between a pound coin and a two pound coin, bearing in mind that she has handled our finances all our 52 years of married life. It really is shit to watch her slipping away. Apologies again for unloading my feelings again.

Jesus mate, vent away. It's what this thread is for.

However, I'm going to disagree with a few on the previous page. I held my dog when the vet injected him. I held my dad's hand during his death rattle (fúck, didn't think that was actually a thing).

Dad affected me far worse

That sucks man. When you live with someone for many years you almost become one person. I wish you all the best and hope you have people around you that can help ease your own pain.

I myself may have liver cancer and am waiting on a diagnosis, I will know later this week most likely. My own wife has been a rock but I heard her crying in the shower yesterday and it killed me. Killed me. :(( Sometimes I wish we were all cold logical robots but then what would be the point of life right? At least that's what I think.

All the best.

It's not quite real is it, when you get that first notice that you may have cancer.

Then, if confirmed, it becomes horrifyingly real and yet you still don't know quite how to process it.

For me the period between the confirmed diagnosis and learning the treatment plan were...surreal. I reached anxiety levels I didn't know existed.

Once the plan was agreed though, for me at least, it all became a lot more manageable. "This is what we are going to do, this is what it involves, this is how long it will take, etc etc".

I can deal with a process much easier than just a piece of information. Typing/speaking everything in a safe place or with a person who you can unburden to, can get you through so much. Now that we have it behind us my wife recently admitted how much it terrified her, especially at the start, but she hung in there and drew some strength and a lot of solace from the fact that she was providing genuine support to someone she loves.

Its going to be hard on those around you True Blue - but don't underestimate them. They can take it if it means supporting you. Lean on them - they want you to and you will need it.

Jesus mate, vent away. It's what this thread is for.

However, I'm going to disagree with a few on the previous page. I held my dog when the vet injected him. I held my dad's hand during his death rattle (fúck, didn't think that was actually a thing).

Dad affected me far worse
I was the opposite holding onto my beloved pooch as she slipped away left me in bits.

GW02 - Really sorry to hear that, I am no expert in these matters but concentrating on the 52 great years would seem to be the way to go.

I was in the room a few minutes before my grandad passed away from cancer last year. The death rattle is very real. Horrible.
I flew back home and my mum picked me up to bring me to my grandparent's place and I got there about 30 minutes before he passed. Was given fair warning that he didn't look great and I'd prepared myself for him looking gaunt (though that still shook me), but the sound of him breathing wasn't something I was ready for.


GW, that sounds awful. Nothing constructive to say other than best wishes from this internet stranger.
Best of luck, TB.

Don't apologe GW02, this is what this thread has been created for.
And it's a very difficult thing you're going through. As said before: make sure there is someone to help you to help your wife.
Whether that's children, friends, neighbours, GP, specialised support groups etc.
And if it helps, keep sharing here.

THanks for the well wishes. I really hope it's a benign tumor which is somewhat common on livers. Ultrasound showed characteristics of both benign and malignant hence the more definitive MRI. Definitely not great for my already high anxiety levels. Being "only" 40 and a non-drinker probably helps my odds i hope.

Someone I know well threw himself under a train recently. It has really knocked the stuffing out of everyone who knew him. Extremely talented, highly respected and a loving family. Sometimes life is just shit.

True Blue wrote:THanks for the well wishes. I really hope it's a benign tumor which is somewhat common on livers. Ultrasound showed characteristics of both benign and malignant hence the more definitive MRI. Definitely not great for my already high anxiety levels. Being "only" 40 and a non-drinker probably helps my odds i hope.
Hoping for great news like everyone else here. :thumbup:

It does that, bud. I suppose we find the strength from somewhere when we need it. That’s my experience anyway. Go well and keep posting. :thumbup:

Tough gig for a few of you lads. You know yourselves it is all peaks and troughs. True Blue good look with that. I know it is difficult to connect with but the vast majority of growths are not cancerous e.g. after my treatment they then found one on the kidneys. Turned out to be nothing but having had the growth in my neck turn out to be something the wait for confirmation was difficult. When it is something the vast majority of cancers are very treatable and the variations are huge. Even within organs the treatability is huge. Fact is don't write yourself off as it more likely to be curable than not
