    When people would talk they didn't know what to say which was understandable.  more...


    Mimi - 15 years old

    I lost myself doing stupid things, angry and sad and depressed at everything. I ended up failing my classes, not caring about school, and getting into fights.  more...

    I stuck my head round the door in the room mum was in, and she looked really ill. I couldn't understand what was happening - one minute my mum was fine and the next she was ill.  more...

    Something I wish is I could just have one more day with my dad! - to tell him how much I love him and how sorry I am for all the bad things I have said and done to him!  more...

    This time the doctors are unable to operate. He has already had 6 sessions of chemo and is having another 6 sessions. I cannot help feeling I may lose him.  more...

    I have been staying with my dad because my mom doesn't want me around when she is sick, which is all the time. My dad works at night so I spend a lot of time alone since I'm not with my mom. I'm afraid she is going to die and I'll blame myself for not being there more. more...

I'm so anxious, stressed and fed up I just want to know what it is.

Hi my mum has been undergoing chemotherapy and it has stopped as the chemotherapy has been affecting her heart. So she has been for scans and they have found something so she had to go for the camera down her throat to see a better picture. The doctors found something in her actual heart, they said it is rare so they can only think it's secondary... if not then she has to go for a heart operation.

She has got appointment for a CT scan but the hospital has cancelled her appointment as there machine is broken and they are waiting for a part.

I'm so anxious, stressed and fed up I just want to know what it is. As I am so desperate to find out if it is secondary or not, when I found out they cancelled her CT scan I was annoyed and was going to give up. As It is an anxious wait to find out what it is in her actual heart I'm so worried again and my stress levels have increased, I'm so stressed.
