For people living with incurable cancer only
This group is aimed only at people who have had an incurable diagnosis themselves, as we have had feedback that they would like a safe space to share their feelings openly among themselves.
If you have a loved one with incurable cancer, you are very welcome on the Online Community as a whole, but we would ask that you respect the wishes of people with incurable cancer and not post in this particular group. Instead, you will find really good support in the Carers group, the relevant cancer type group and the supporting someone with incurable cancer group.
I thought I should think of things
I could think of to help dream the day away.
But I couldn't think of what to think of,
So I decided not to think at all.
But then I thought I can't really do that
As that would be thinking the day away.
And now I'm confused as to what I was thinking.
When I thought to write this verse.
Hi Ellieellie, on Tuesday I went to my second session of a 6 week Macmillan Hope course (Helping Overcome Problems Effectively) We did a mindfulness session thinking about a raisin. I’m supposed to practise this week, one option is mindfully thinking when having a drink of tea. So your poem struck a cord with me today.
