Is anyone experienced with cancer? I know very few about it and after searching google I only found some very complicated medicinal pages which didn't help me. I just want to know. Doctors always tell you so few things. It doesn't give you any impression of hope or comfort.

I can't say what it's like to have the dreaded thing but i can tell you it's not too nice too live with. My mother (God bless her wee soul) died of cancer when i was 16. It wasn't a nice time. The only thing to say is that i watched her deteriotate from hero to zero in less than a year, but 'til the very end, no matter her agony, she always smiled. That may seem like nothing, but have haunting memoties of doctor's in my home at 3am with morphine to numb her pain. I remember that night like it was only night before last.
Although i would like to add that my mother had no fear of the road ahead in her travels through life. My aim in life is to simply smile every day. Not to feel down or aggrieved. But simply to meet whatever and who ever enters my life with a smile. I don't smile everyday cause life is hard and a struggle but then comes the magical wisdom of Bob Dylan "Let me forget about today, until tomorrow".
I have no idea what kind of reply you were seeking but that's my experience with the damn thing. Wether or not this post is of any interest to anyone, it makes me feel better. Just to express shit that's been inside for a few years. So even if this was just a senseless babble, thanks for the post to reply to.

Thanks for your reply!
I am really sorry for what happened to your mother. Which "form" of cancer has she had? Mine has a mamma karzinome and she just got to know she has to do surgery again. She cried and I was so unable to give her comfort. I don't know what to say or do so that it gets better. I myself couldn't go through this alone. My father isn't a man of big feelings. He isn't of help for her. He just makes wrong jokes in the wrong situation. My mother and I never had a close relationship. I'm somewhat a relationship-crupple. A creep. It's only these days she's ill that I really, really hold her. Isn't that embarassing for a daughter?
Anyway, I have hopes that everything get's well. But it will never ever be like before, especially for my poor mother.
I'm out of... :/
