    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...

My mom's breast cancer

Started : 10.6.2020 by Jane

When i was 14 my mom was diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer. She then went on with chemo therapy and her hair started falling out. it was very scary to see and i don't like dealing with emotions so i did whatever i could to avoid what was happening. She got better somehow and they found no traces of cancer in her body so everything started going back to normal. But earlier this year they found marks on her brain and i dont know the details but she's on chemo again. Her hair fell out again and i feel like we are back at square one. I know I'm selfish but i dont want to live through this again because i dont even know how i made it the first time. Its selfish but i dont like facing emotions or having heart to heart talks i just can't deal with that. And I'm scared and paranoid about every ache or pain in my body. Like i get these terrible pains in my left breast and left arm and it scares me so much even though i know i am probably overreacting. I dont know what to do or how to feel I'm 16 years old how am i supposed to go on with life. And its not just this its everything. Everything is wrong. My family. My friends. My future. I'm scared i wont really be able to live my life as i should be because God knows i haven't lived at all. I'm scared my mom is going to die and I'm afraid I'm losing everyone. I act like i don't care but i care too much and i dont know who to turn to.
