Forums General Melanoma Community Whoa.. go away for 8 months or so, and things have changed a LOT! Re: Whoa.. go away for 8 months or so, and things have …


      I am so sorry to hear you’re going through so much BG.  I hope your health issues are related to all this stress and not anything else.  As to families, well, don’t get me started.  I will say that I think the adrenelin we get from anger actually helps us.  Well it must, or I wouldn’t be here. 

      Hang in there.  I’ll keep you and your mom in my thoughts and prayers.  Email if me if you’d like.  I’d like to know how your family fared in the place we have in common (yikes this anonymous stuff is hard).  Our son’s house was fine but the surrounding area, not so well.  You know what I’m talking about.  OMG – I sound like DAN – LOL!!!!!

      Take care and stay strong.
