Okay, It's Time to Come Clean

This has been an extremely difficult month+ for more me. I'm not really one to share my personal life with this forum but early last month, my wife was diagnosed with cancer. I've never had to deal with this, ever. Not parents, cousins, grandparents, great aunts and uncles, etc.

Because my MIL contracted terminal cancer two years ago and has already outlived her prognosis, we chose not to tell anyone at all, until we definitely knew what we were facing. It was beyond difficult to hold it inside.

So, this issue, which is completely unrelated to this forum, began to manifest itself. I began "playfully" poking at people for their views on a QB. My unrelated feelings and anger began to take over and I felt cathartic and a release arguing over a certain QB that people that I respect and would at any other time, call friends.

I was pretty out of control in late January and without going back to read what I posted, probably completely out of control in February. I was releasing all this energy, which has been enormous, to say the least. This forum allowed me to do just that.

As most of you know, I have a 4 year old and a 6 month old. The very thought of losing my wife of 17 years was devastating. Every single question went through my mind: Do I re-marry? No. Then how do my girls grow up without not only their mother, but a mother figure? How can I raise two babies? How am I going to do this? The internal questions were almost never ending.

My wife had surgery last week and just this evening, the doctor confirmed that she was cancer-free. She'll need to have monthly checkups for 2 years, then quarterly check ups for 3 years. But it was pretty much a revelation and a new lease on life.

Anyway, my apologies to SNR, BossChief, DJ, Htis, Milkman, etc. for putting up my nonsense. As I said, it's been a release and I appreciate the fact that you guys haven't totally lost it with me.

So, with all that said, I'm back to normal. Well, at least as much as I can be after this experience.

Thanks again.

ha, I THOUGHT something felt wrong about your posting...

glad to hear that your wife kicked cancer's ass. lost my gramps (the only grandparent I really had as a kid, and was really close to) to lung cancer when I was 16 and both of my in-laws have or have had cancer (mother-in-law beat breast cancer last year and father-in-law is currently dealing with lung cancer).

Dane....I am sorry for your struggles. I have been through the same thing with my wife and it was very hard for a tough guy to deal with his emotions. Thankfully my wife just finished the 5 years you referenced and is cancer free, so there are success stories. I prayer your wife has the same result.

So sorry to hear that Dane, and so glad to hear that she successfully fought it. I went through this last year with my mother, and while that's nothing like the impact a spouse would have, it's given me an understanding of what you've been going through.

That's rough stuff. I think it's harder on the spouse that doesn't have cancer (or any catastrophic disease) than on the one who does. I'm glad things are looking up and I hope for the best over the next 5 years. Best of luck to you and your family.

First of all, I'm really glad that your wife is OK.
But to say you've acted any differently than you ever have is total BS.
You just happen to disagree with people who your opinions usually fall in line with this time. Same virulence, different target.
