October: I lose out in a work restructure interview which took place after a night spending 16 hours (I shIt you not) lifting my cancer patient girlfriend from bed to wheelchair to toilet and vice versa.
November: Girlfriend and me told while she was in hospital that she had months to live as cancer had spread to spine and brain. I've since found out liver as well.
Girlfriend back in hospital on Oct 28. Back out Nov 27. At home on electronic hospital bed in our living room for barely a month. Carers, district nurses visiting but me pretty full time carer.
Back in hospital on Christmas Eve. Died on Dec 27. Grieving alone during week between her passing and New Year. Funeral Jan 13 where I had to give the eulogy.
Now County sack Jim. Massive Jim fan here but I guess I've got some sort of perspective!
Not wishing to moan or anything but Jesus fkn Christ....
