Received a very nice e-mail today from a friend telling me how my blogs were providing her some assistance.
The other shoe dropped though when she advised that she's taken on the co-pilot role since her partner was diagnosed around Christmas time.
I will recommend that she join this community as I've found it to be the most helpful to me. It is helpful because of people such as bothsides, bumpyboobs, lovely-lady-lumps, and others who aren't the least bit frightened to share the ups and downs of being dealt such a crap hand. Regardless of how supported we are with immediate family there are moments when all of us feel abandoned. When visions of Tom Hanks getting up close and personal with Wilson the volleyball begin to seem all too real.
So, Diana, you are not alone. I'll be there for you and if you choose I can highly recommend the great new family I've found on this site and in these blogs.
