Hi all

my dad has been diagnosed with Mesothelioma about 4 months ago, I moved in with him just over 2 months ago as my mom passed away and I didn’t want him to be on his own, since being there I’ve built him a wet room and utility so everything is all on 1 level for him, it’s been tuff working and living there as you guys know his mood and illness fluctuate on a daily basis, he had a fall on Saturday and really made him depressed, also he’s having his third and last round of chemotherapy on Wednesday

Hi, sorry you're going through this too. You have done absolutely the right thing to move in with your dad. I'm arranging for my dad to move in with me at the moment and wish I'd done so ages ago now. This disease is horrible enough without having to be alone without anyone to talk to about it and face the lonely evenings and nights without company.

Thanks April

i have a sister too, she’s not coping to well with it all tbh, I’m sort of doing ok as I see him everyday but I have my moments as I’m sure you do too, such a horrible thing to see happening to someone

I’ve been asking my parents to move closer to us for years, we’re 3-4 hours away and my brother lives in turkey. My dad said a while ago he regrets not doing it now, we were hoping to get them moved  after new year but new scans say it’s not going to happen
