    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 remember when my mom was diagnosed with terminal cancer many years ago, I could tell everyone looked at me with pity. If your worried about your mom or are wanting to know what’s going to happen make sure you talk to her or any of your family. Don’t keep it bottled inside of you. Although you do have to stay strong I think it’s equally important to still laugh together but also cry together. It may still be hard to talk to other people about it but when your ready just explain that all you need is a hug or are you okay. People get scared to ask you if your okay as they think it’s a stupid question but all you need is to express how your feeling. If there’s anything I can help with I’m here xx
