Ugh. Now that I’m coming to grips with dad’s lung cancer and leukemia diagnosis, my GF breaking up with me is setting in.

I need a hug.
And vodka.
Or weed.

I just wanted to tell you to hang in there. I've been through all of this and all at the same time as well. I know it's very difficult to get through the news of something like this let alone having to be there as support For your dad. Everybody's Journey and personality is different. But I can say that during the time that I had with my dad While we were going through his care , We never let him see us cry . We did that behind the scenes. We kind of unspokenly put that off the table Even though that dark cloud was always there . There was more love more laughter and we made more of the time we had together and never let the tears win. I hope he makes it through his diagnosis And I hope every step of it It is as merciful as it can be For Him and those he loves. And as far as that Girlfriend goes I can tell you that in time Those things heal. I know it sucks big time right now and I'm sorry. Maybe focusing on the Bigger picture and the priority of family will help ease that Or at least be a Distraction. Stay as strong as you can , I found that being at the forefront of the situation with my dad prepared me For any outcome I will be sending my prayers out For you and your family. As far as the vodka and the weed........well If it helps and You can handle it without addiction or excess There's nothing wrong with a little relaxation... Remember what I said, Don't waste A Single minute. You can do this and you will get through it.

Here is a big hug from me and i hope it comforts you to know someone in the USA is thinking of you. I, too, had a dad with lung cancer. All the best :)

@Shepherd I’ll get thought this. Just never had so much bad news all at once before…taking me a while to process it

I don't suppose there's any chance you're in the Sherwood area, or even the Beaverton area? Even the greater Portland area would help.

@LordShadowfire No, I’m down south of LA in OC

@Zaphod42 I'd love to help, but that's too much of a drive.

@LordShadowfire No worries, I’ll find my way through it all. I appreciate the thought though 🙂
