Hello Rebecca You're not alone and I'm certainly not shocked. My dad lives with me, slightly different situation - when diagnosed with terminal lung cancer 20 months ago I insisted he move in with me and my partner so I could give him a comfortable end of life. I adored my dad, he was my only source...
My dad lives with me, lung cancer and steroid dependant so high risk but fortunately on immunotherapy not chemo so not the super high risk. I've worked really hard the past few months on resisting his manipulations to be at his beck and call as physically, he's able to live independently and doesn't...
Hello Christine, I know practically nothing about MND but I do know about caring for longer than originally expected. My dad was diagnosed stage 4 lung cancer in August 2018 and we were told terminal. Desperate to see dad comfortable in his last months, I moved him in with me. By Nov it'd spread to ...
That's really reassuring to hear. I've read on the forum you saying how useful you've found it.

Thank you 😊
Thank you I received an email from work yesterday, our company has recently undergone a merger of sorts so from January we will get some private medical cover through work I'm going to hang on to see what they offer, with a bit of luck I might access something at lower cost through them as I'm seein...

I'm better than I used to be, a year ago I wouldn't go out for an evening to visit a friend because he'd huff and sulk about being left home alone. T...
Yes, it definitely is. It's my partners birthday on the 2nd, I've taken a couple of days off work to visit him as we've recently got back together. Dad has treatment on the morning and physio on the afternoon of the 2nd, so I've told him he'll need to organise taxis or get on the bus with his electr...
Thank you both. Dad gets attendance allowance and I get 25% discount on the council tax because of that. He had an assessment in September on discharge from hospital after falling chasing his ex wife's cat. Having read advice on the forum before, I emailed occupational therapy after he declined an a...
Hello I've been a member for a little while, mainly reading and taking comfort reading others stories so sometimes feeling less of a monster :-/ My dad has stage 4 lung cancer, diagnosed August last year aged 71. He was still working as a long distance lorry driver, spending weekends at his static c...
Hi Greg, I'm a chartered financial adviser and pension specialist by trade, currently working in a compliance role checking financial advisers work, so don't give advice myself (so not touting for business!) The quality of advice differs hugely between firms and individuals but I'd offer these point...
