How do you feel about this?
I was meeting with a person today, who is most probably terminal with cancer within some weeks or months, and she said that she would like to speak with someone else who has cancer and is in her situation. I suggested she might find someone through a web site like this one. We will explore this avenue together next time we meet.
I found this forum and created my own profile so I could gain experience and knowledge in this (I am older and grey haired and don't find facebook, twitter, MSN, and such like very attractive, so I have a steep learning curve).
Would you feel threatened, as a survivor, or someone in recovery, or someone whose future is uncertain, being asked to discuss your experience and situation with someone who is almost past the limits of medical intervention? Does it help or does it hurt you to connect with others who might be or probably are dying?
I would appreciate your honest replies.
