You are absolutely correct about
the perspective. I have for sure felt sorry for myself more than a few times since my diagnosis and surgery, even though I know things have been going relatively well for me so far. Still, my PC has absolutely been put on the back burner by everyone including me. about
4 months after my surgery, my 39 years old daughter in law was diagnosed with stage 4 Mesothelioma. She was a bit heavy a year ago, she is 94 lbs now. She is the mother of out 10 and 13 year old grandsons. This has been devastating for all of us.
I know we have other threads going on about
how irritating it can be when people don't understand various things about
our PCa. But, this is the other side of the picture.
I'm real sorry to hear what your brother in law and family are going through. My prayers are going out for you and your family.
