I'm sorry to hear about your dad. I now know what it feels like to have someone very close to you go through this. My husband of 1 year was recently diagnosed with stage 3 melanoma 3 months ago. He just started treatment and feels horrible. I know how you feel depressed because I know I am. I cry myself to sleep at least 3 nights a week. If you ever need to talk to someone I'm here and I do know what your going through.

Don't feel bad about it. Only 12% of people actually change their life-style after Cancer or a Heart Attack. My 25 yos has Testicular Cancer and I've read SO much on Cancer in the past five months, that there is no way I'll ever go back to living like I have. I'm buying organic food and doing lots of other things to help myself and him.

Dont use up your energy being depressed or angry. Rather put that energy into being there for your Dad. Give him all the love and attention you can muster, dont waste a moment.

God Bless You.

My dad was diagnosed with skin cancer in 2002(I think) and has been doing well until last July when we found out it came back. And since then we found out it has spread to his lungs, liver and brain. However it's small enough right now to not proceed with radiation. He is going for CAT scans and MRI's every so often to keep an eye on it.
There are days where he is feeling ok, and other days where he just doesn't feel good. I just hate it. I know I"m still in denial about it. I participated in the Relay for Life a couple weeks ago, which really lifted my spirits up(If I could take part in the Relay for Life every week I would do it. It made me feel really good). But now I'm starting to feel angry and upset again.
Mainly when my dad isn't feeling good, I get somewhat depressed and don't feel like going out or going to the gym. Even though I know getting out and exercising will make me feel soooo much better. I just can't be bothered to take care of myself. I need to stop feeling like this but I just don't know how. I hate it.

The world ain't all sunshine and rainbows. It is a very mean and nasty place and I don't care how tough you are it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain't how hard you hit; it's about how hard you can get hit, and keep moving forward. How much you can take, and keep moving forward. That's how winning is done. Now, if you know what you're worth, then go out and get what you're worth. But you
