    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...

    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...

There's good news and there's bad news

Started : 11.4.2019 by E p

Firstly, there is amazing news that my dad has been cured of cancer after operations, chemotherapy and radiotherapy! However mum has been diagnosed with cancer for the third time. I was too young to understand/remember the previous two times. It is now secondary breast cancer which is in her lung and has recently spread to the lining of her brain. Lately, I have been feeling incredibly scared and I've realised how unpredictable life is. Now more than ever, I feel so isolated and completely alone because as much as people (family and friends mainly) try and understand what I'm feeling and going through, they just don't get it and that makes me feel different and weird and I was wondering if anyone else has been feeling this way and if they have any coping methods?
