Tip toeing around
Ever feel like you’re just tip tiring around your parent with cancer? My mum was diagnosed with breast cancer in May at the start of the year, and is now nearing the end of chemo. I didn’t physically lose my mum but some days it feels like I’m not longer her daughter anymore. I feel as if I’m a stranger in her life now. I try to talk to her about anything and sometimes she just brushes it off or acts like what I’m saying is stupid and that my personal issues are nothing. Sometimes it feels as though I have lost my mum, and I don’t know what to do to make things better. I feel like I’ve done something wrong, so now I have to be careful with what I say and what I do.
