  1. When my husband was diagnosed back in October 2003, I cried so much. His cancer was so far along and we didn't even know it. He went to work everyday feeling so sick but he didn't know why. Once we found out why, he never went back to work again. We would cry - not understanding the situation and the outcome. When I was alone, I really cried - like a baby. I have come to believe it is so normal to feel this way. I think if there is a significant other to share your crisis with, they should just hold each other and cry together and talk to the sun comes up.

    When I was diagnosed, I really missed not having my husband to help and support me. I didn't cry for myself like I did for him. I think that is probably normal, too.

    Stay strong and positive. Believe miracles happen when prayer and hope are involved.

  2. Hi Everyone,

    I found this site last month and can't believe it has been around for so long. I have been diagnosed for almost two years and have never looked before. I don't know why.

    It is so unbelievable how many other people are cursed with lung cancer. I never thought I would be one of them.

    I was 52 years old when first diagnosed. My husband had died only one year earlier from lung cancer. He was diagnosed in late October 2003 and died late March 2004. So when just a year later in April 2005 a small mass was discovered on my right lung, my family and I were in a state of shock. I have always been a non smoker but my husband did smoke for a long time.

    I have NSCL - bronchioloalveolar adenocarcinoma.

    I have learned so much from reading all the emails on the message board especially about Tarceva.

    I am grateful to be able to join a site with so many caring, compassionate people listening.

    I will continue to visit this site often.

    Thanks. Mary
