Need to take a break

Recommended Posts

Well I can honestly say this for the first time since I have been a member, I need to take a break. I realized with my last update that some people may be getting "offended" reading how my mom is always doing so well. I love this site it has helped me tremendously and may need to help me again but at this time I am taking a break for an undetermined amount of time. I will continue to keep praying for a cure.

Some times we need to hear good news to keep us going and focused and positive. IF all you hear is bad things well.. It is up toyou of course but don't think because Mom is doing well that you have to leave us for any reason. I never have news and am still helping out here ya Know?? :wink::)

Heidi,

I'll have to stop posting now

because Mike was also IIIA

and he is gone, and that won't

help new patients at least when

they see your posts, they knew

with your mother profile that

they have a chance.......

If everybody that have a good

issue stopped posting.....where

would be the HOPE for the new

members..????????

I agree fully with all the posts above that you shouldn't stop posting. I have just recently been diagnosised with sclc. I found this website about a week after finding out I had cancer. When I found this site I had little to no hope that I could beat this cancer. The stories I have read here and the support and kind words that I have gotten from the kind people on this site have given me the hope I so desperately needed. I know first hand how being diagnosed with cancer can turn your life upside down, and if everyone quit posting because they didn't want to hurt someones feelings because they are doing so well, and maybe the person who is reading isn't, then that person may lose all hope and just give up and let cancer win.

Please don't quit posting now, your story along with the numerous other success stories on this site are what keeps me coming back. When I am low and down, I come here and they give me the strength I need to face another day.

I think it is ridiculous for anyone to be "offended" by a positive and inspiring story!!

Please don't leave. LC is a tough disease and the statistics sometimes don't leave alot of hope. It's stories like your moms, that keep hope real and alive and it inspires.

Whomever was offended by a positive successful survivor story is obviously in the wrong place. This is a place for support and HOPE.

Please stay.

Hey Heidi!!!

Don't you EVEN make me come all the way out there to get you to remain here!!!!! I'm not planning on going anywhere soon, so I sure hope you reconsider!People come to THIS website to receive hope and read the many positive stories of folks doing well. What would be upsetting if there were none here to read!

Love,

Kasey

Take your break and come back Never listen to what people say.

The vast majority of us are thrilled that your mom is doing so good. Shame on this person who puts a bad rap on this.

See you when you get back. You better come back, ya hear!

Thank you all for your kind words. I really do feel welcome here reading all your posts you guys are great.

So I called my mom the other day to see what she was doing and she said "Trying to figure what hurt your feelings on the Lung cancer website" Well I was just so excited to hear she was looking at it that we talked I told her what had hurt my feelings and she said "Quit being so sensitive all the time, you need that site, I am doing fine and that is exciting for us."

SOOOOOOOOOOOOoooooooooooooooooooo............ Here I am :oops: I hope I am welcome back. My mom really knocked some sense into me just talking to her. Then all these awesome responses just made me really feel good.

THANK YOU everyone!

Heidi

Heidi,

Your mom is one tough, smart cookie. Listen to her and CELEBRATE her survivorship with all of us!!

I still have no idea what hurt your feelings, but I hope it's resolved now. You are part of this family and we are here for YOU too.

(((hugs and more hugs)) for you and your mom!!!
