curlysue50 Posted June 13, 2012 Share Posted June 13, 2012 I know it probably sounds crazy, but I have been feeling guilty, or maybe sadness is a better word, about how much my lung cancer has impacted my family emotionally and financially. The cost in all respects seems too high for my husband, daughters, sisters and parents, to bear. I feel like I have been the cause of the loss of my own and my husbands dreams and plans for retirement at our cottage. I know we are never promised tomorrow, but it seems so much of our life right now revolves around me and my cancer. It is the center of a universe I did not choose for myself, but I would give anything not to be in. My loved ones do not deserve this. We are making so many changes and adjustments to acommadate me. I am so so uncomfortable with the idea of others giving up and sacrificing their needs for me. I did not choose cancer, it chose me, but I still feel like I am at fault in some way. How have others coped with the financial and emotional burdens placed on their families by their LUNG CANCER? Susan Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
