    You often ask questions which beg questions, but, you do not offer more than one answer. this is forcing others into defending the points you make for them, yes? i don't mean to be rude, but you could be nicer...

I don't hate Tom

by MaggieD on 08-22-17 at 04:34 PM
Just thought I'd put that out there. And my confrontation with Bubba was unfortunate. I am not unhappy. When I read his post, I PMd him to see if he was kidding or serious. "Serious" was his only reply. So I had at him. As I said, unfortunate.

I forgive myself this kind of outburst because I know I'm dealing with a terminal illness. I think I'm dealing with it very well. And, if you can believe it, I'm busy and happy. I try not to think about what the future holds, because

Yesterday was a lunch date with Tom's sister and his brother's girlfriend of fifty years. I was looking forward to it because it was make-or-break. Either they were friends/family or they weren't. And I desperately needed to know that.

I waited for Claudia to bring up the huge anniversary BBQ they had this past Saturday, and, after one Lemon Drop Martini, I brought it up myself.

Told them how hurt I was when I realized (from that group text) that they hadn't told many in

So a few months ago, Tom's sister had a restaurant party for about 40 people celebrating their 50th anniversary. Of course, Tom and I were there. At that time, she told us about the big summer party she planned for tomorrow.

Though I've had lunch with her several times since, she never mentioned the party to me again. These kinds of milestones are hard to weather. I considered his family my own after 18 years so leading up to tomorrow has been a bit difficult.

But I was

Good news for me...my last scan came out good so I get to stay on the Opdiva cocktail instead of heavy-duty chemo. Still no symptoms of any kind except shortness of breath. I swear I am blessed.

I've had a hard time coming to terms with what happened. I call it mental masturbating. I tend to hash and rehash what's happened and have been borderline obsessive with Tom's unbelievable behavior.

The counselor suggested a journal. That's been helpful. And I've come to manage
